I don't understand something...Avery has played on the top 2 lines for two season yet we keep calling him a 3rd line player...What am I missing here?
I can see everybodys point that doesn't want him back for $3.5M but I still disagree with it. Here we have a guy that ALWAYS sticks up for his teammates (I question any Rangers player that doesn't want Sean Avery as a teammate) It also doesn't really matter to us or effect us what goes on in the lockeroom....for somebody to say that the coaches and players aren't ther to babysit a player I mean come on...Why do teams have captains? Because Avery won't give Sam Weinman a quote or tell Delipina anything that makes him a bad guy? Who cares about that stuff...
For anybody to say that the reason Avery played so hard is because it was a contract year clearly never saw Avery play BEFORE he became a Rangers player. Also in a contract year he played with a lacerated spleen for two periods....I mean what does that tell you?
We have become to spoiled the past 3 years...We call guys that are 29 old...We have no apperciation for effort or intangibles just what a guy does on a stat sheet. Forget the fact Avery was the only play that had any chemistry with all THREE of the Rangers centers..Forget the fact that Avery was our 2nd line center on a team that almost made the ECF last season...A first line LW during half the season...A second line LW for the other half of the season...But he's a third line player? where...when?
If we you want to replace Avery then please lets here all the plan Bs? Lets hear who everybody wants to bring in...
It's almost like some guys would rather play the younger kids and have a fire sale then actually winning...
