Would Avery be a good fit for the Rangers?
Sat, February 7, 2009

BRUCE GARRIOCH, SUN MEDIA

Sean Avery's road back to the NHL has officially started.

The suspended Dallas Stars winger was placed on waivers today, which means he's ready to play after undergoing counselling, following comments he made earlier this season in Calgary.

If nobody claims him he will clear Monday at noon. The belief is the New York Rangers have discussed the possiblity of bringing in Avery at half-price. He still has three-years, $12 million remaining on his contract.

Would Avery be a good fit with the Rangers? Have your say in our forum.

Well, trash talk is one thing, taking shots at guys during warm up is something else. the Leafs are whiners? Than I guess Martin Brodeur is one, too. That stupid clown did tha same to him as well. Belak is right, he willl have it coming. Avery is an a** hole, he would fit in nicely with Neil.

With Belak shooting his mouth off about killing Avery and smashing a hockey stick over Avery's head. Belak is the one the league should be suspending. Trash talk on the ice or in any other sport is the norm. But when a player is interviewed by a sports reporter and threatens another player of death? Who should we be looking at? Belak should be done as a hockey player. BYE.

avery made a comment to blake about his leukemia....... yet you guys bash at tucker for standing up for blake??? give your head a shake guys. avery has crossed the line before calling georges laraque a monkey and also making comments about french canadian hockey players being wimps for wearing visors but he has to know where to draw the line with tasteless comments like this latest.

I guess Darcy Tucker only made Positive comments to opponents in the past? When will Tucker stop whining about everything and start playing hockey. Avery did exactly what he needed for his team to win...oh ya and he scored a beauty and set up another. When asked by the Media Blake and Tucker had their opportunity to say what was said...instead they allow the Toronto media to assume (which is all the Leaf fans need) to find someone quilty.

I would have loved to see Avery in a Leafs uniform last year and seen Tucker shown the door as a UFA....The Leafs would have gotten a player with a better upswing, cost less and provided excitement for Leafs Nation!

As another Rangers fan - and a former Ulf Samulson / Darius Kasperitus fan -- all these guys are guys you love to hate when they're on the other squad -- then you love them when they're on your side.

Darcy Tucker is just miffed that he lost the crown!

Did "Sideshow Bob" just call someone classless?? Pot meet Kettle!

Avery is just a younger Sideshow bob and he got under the Leafs skin. Classless...Yes but Darcy has made a nice career being classless!

What a bunch of whiners the Leafs are. This is a team that employed Tie Domi for years--a guy who once fought a fan. This is just the complaining of a team that got its butt kicked by one guy, literally and figuratively.

When you become a professional hockey player you expect the opposition to do whatever it takes to throw you off your game. If you can't deal with it you shoud'nt be there.

Who cares if avery crodssed the line or not.The sad thing was the leafs ran with there tail tucked betwwen there legs.Years ago Domi would have taken care of avery. But today the leafs have a bunch of players who are sissies. It was kind of comical watching avery scare the you know what out of the whole leaf team.

I heard on TV today that what got the Leafs so upset was that Avery made reference to Blake having cancer. I heard he was taunting him about his medical condition, and when the reporters asked Blake about it, he didn't respond, but he made a look that said it was true. Also, the reporter said a Ranger player confirmed it was true.
