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.

Sean Avery should realize that when you play at this level in this profession there is a decorum of decency and professionalism that needs to be followed and he violated both! Just consider where it comes from Elisha. Perhaps you saw the worst of this man first hand.

Ask any NHL wife/girlfriend and they will all tell you, there are "Puck Bunnies" in every NHL city. Avery's comment was not necessary. Perhaps Avery should attend a "life skills course", while he's off on suspension.

He needs to just shut his mouth and play hockey. I have to admit, if someone ran their mouth like that about a member of my family, on national T.V., I'd be plenty pissed. It may not be a "bad word" or phrase, but he's way passed due to figure out that he's not getting paid 4 million a year to say and do whatever he wants. He's getting paid to play hockey. He's a total head-case. Good for the NHL, the Stars, and his teammates for not allowing kind of crap towards women.

Elisha Cuthbert is a beautiful, young woman. I'm sure she could choose almost any man she wants.

I don't know why she is dating these NHL neanderthals.

She should be dating guys who have some intelligence as well as looks. Phaneuf and Avery have neither. Most NHL players are not that bright.

6 games...mmmm...1 for hitting from behind but 6 for stating a tasteless comment...Come on NHL get your stuff together!

Sure there is a line to cross, it's the boards at the rink. Talk trash like that all you want on the ice, but that's where it needs to stay.

Give him a suspension just like if he made a racist remark, let him back to play (if Dallas will take him) and let the players handle it on the ice. Do you really think Dallas will keep him off the ice the Phaneuff is on?

Steve's right. The NHL is making a mole hill into a mountain. Fine him and suspend him for a few games. That's it that's all. Nother further.

So what? Sloppy seconds? This is NOTHING!! Get over yourselves you over-sensitive retards. Yes I said "retards". Take back the language and don't let these sensitive-types declare another "bad" word.

Just sad that this is happening.

Don't apologize for this Avery! The more the NHL and media focus on this, the more people turn off hockey. Panic-stricken, over sensitive ninnies are ruining freedom of speech. Can't anyone make an off-handed comment? Argh.
