I personally would rather hear a cheer for someone like Jed Ortmeyer (who is recovering from ACL surgery and also again with blood clot issues) returning to MSG (which won't happen this year) than Avery. Ortmeyer is a guy who gave his all and was loved by teammates and fans alike for a few years.

Jed ortmeyer? Really? Yeah, he worked his butt off because he had no choice, he had no skill. Mike Gartner didn't bring us a cup, came back and got a good ovation which was well deserved. Avery brought publicity to NY. He, along with JJ, brought respect and interest back to NY. You're kidding yourself if you think that the Rangers make the playoffs if Avery wasn't acquired at the deadline. Just look at the record with him in and with him out of the lineup.
