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.

Clearly, Bruce and Nick never read Marvin Harris who said:

"Pigs prefer to wallow in clean mud, but if nothing else is available, they will frequently wallow in their own urine, giving rise to the notion that they are dirty animals."

That's Avery in a nutshell. Get down there with him Bruce and Nick.

As a parent, a teacher and a fan.... finally a organisation who can stand up to morals and values that this society lacks. Enough with all these "Trashy role models".

maybe the Stars can find a clause to prevent them form having to pay this idiot altogether..lets face it his comments have caused the team millions.. why should he still get paid? Fire him, w cause!

Truth or not, he needs to learn a lesson on tact, and maybe display some iota of class & professionalism. Is this the kind of sports figure you want your kids to look up too?

Anyone who applauds or says his comments are ok ( NIck and BRUCE) are also idiots.

The se people get paid to play hockey, not to purposely call reporters to show how stupid you are... although most people already knew.. now we all know... To involve the NHL in his statment is also out of bounds and slanderous... suspending him for a dozen games will cost him lots.. maybe he'll shut his mouth and play hockey... if not retire the ass!

deep down SA is an evil person - he should be kicked out of the NHL. I won't happen but that's what should happen

No he should not have been suspended. I thought his comment was awkardly said, but quite humorus. im sick of all the politically correct idiots and applaud Avry for being able to say that

He was'nt lieing, the new boy is getting sloppy seconds,what is the problem?

It's one thing to slander and 'bad talk' another player within the league - even though there are limits there as well.

But it's another thing when you slander people outside the game. these women are not nhl people. they don't play in the nhl and don't work for the nhl. he is way out of line not only as an nhl representative but also as human being. He crossed the line a long time ago. and he's moved further away from it each and every day.

He's an idiot. Not too many people will miss him when he's gone from the nhl (which will hopefully be very,very soon)

Avery is a terrible role model, he crosses the line every chance he gets, he is gutless and spineless, but boy oh boy is he ever good for ratings, so the NHL needs a player like that around.
