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.

I think that girl has poor taste to have been with an idiot like this.

He's a hockey player for gods sake, what do you people expect, an IQ above 50?

Avery should never play in the NHL again. Maybe he should go hook up with David Frost and compare notes.

Then again Bertuzzi is still playing in the NHL and he almost killed someone - so I do not expect anything more than a small suspension.

NHLPA should step in here. They should feel ashamed if they do not. He is hurting player credibility more that the league itself.

the sad part of all this is that they pay this moron $15.5 million over 4 years. I thought Brett Hull was smarter than that but then again that is todays NHL, too many teams, too many players who have no business being in the NHL. This guy wouldn't know class if it hit him in the head. Ban him from the NHL period, who needs him

All you guys that think what Avery said is ok, why don't you explain to a child what that comment means? And then explain to them why you think it's ok for Avery to say something like that. Just don't be too surprised when that child loses respect for you.

Becoming a professional athlete is more than just playing a sport. The word "Professional" means you understand that you are not only a player but a representative of a business. In any business environment if you were to make those comments to or about a co-worker and their family you would be fired for harassment!

Avery has proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that he is not a professional. He has no respect for his co-workers, their families or his role in professional life. I hope the Dallas Stars send him to the minors, suspend him for the season or at least send him for councelling.

The Players Association has also spoken volumes over this by keeping quiet! I applaud them for letting the rank and file members know that there is NO place in their profession for this lack of respect!

Trash talk ON THE ICE!

hey bertuzzi, you got the wrong guy, get it right this time would ya?

To AB: perhaps you should learn how to spell before you should consider yourself an expert in Psychiatry (inapportaite is inappropriate and sloopy is sloppy). How do you know know one was hurt by his comments. What are you ? a 12-year old ?

Nick and Bruce--DUH

What intellectual midgets

AB: No reporter ever asked him anything. He gathered the media together and made the statement without a single question. Thus he was just doing that to try to stir the pot. So he brought it upon himself.

Nick and Bruce: Let me spell it out for you both. This isn't about political correctness. Avery is a grown up MAN in a MEN's game, not a freshman in high school. "Sloppy seconds" might have been an acceptable phrase in high school (along with other obscenities and street slang uttered in the smoking area or student parking lot) but it is considered insulting and inappropriate in the adult world. It's all about MATURITY. The league and his own team are punishing him for his lack of it, and rightly so.

If a normal joe said that about a colleague in the office, he'd be disciplined and/or fired rather quickly.

First of all to "a hockey fan" and "Pete" take it somewhere else, your crap just wastes space and some of us just want to read other's comments on the subject.

Avery is a complete a-orifice (see Wikipedia). It's too bad that he hasn't been tuned up before this (even by his teammates). And it's too bad he has gotten away with this sort of behaviour thus far in his career. Stand up Avery, be a man, admit you went too far, and stop being an attention-ho.
