Hard to say that it's just a coincidence with such a large sample size.
What is the teams record with Avery and Torts as head coach? Im sure its not as lop-sided.

He played great under Renney but we certainly can't say the same for Torts.

Can Torts bench himself for all the mind boggling line juggling. This dude sucks.

I'm sure offdacrossbar and Fitzy are ecstatic. And Avery at 50% "engaged" is at least 100000000000 X more engaged then most of the bums on this team.

Torts is losing me....

On the other hand I'm doing whatever it takes to change this teams luck. Today I got my hair cut and went from:

We need two points...

naw. i actually like avery and have no problem what so ever with his game. ive never been an avery basher at all.

i would have sat shelley down instead and added ringo back in lineup and just flipped avery and ringo. avery should go to line 4 if hes in the dog house but scratching him is purely spiteful and makes this team weaker.

he cares. hes whacked, ill give you that, but the dude can play hockey and he cares. his problem, is avery is "weak" because torts had him by the b@lls and pulls his leash way too tight.

this avery light is awful to watch. it makes us a worse team.

torts is a clown. this is just another example of it.

then again, if it makes us weaker we have a better chance of losing and thus we are closer to K2

That's kind of a given. Thankfully I think he's better at MSG than he is at home.

Great.We go from a guy who is "not engaged" to a guy who can't seem to disengage his head from his ass with the way he thinks the game at times.

Avery has more points than the rangers 7 million dollar captain and plays close to 4 minutes less a night but yet Avery is the one that needs to be more engaged.

Thats why this team is so screwed up. The guys making the big money on the rangers are the most underperforming players on the team. So now you need to ask your role players like Avery or your young kids to overperform more than there capabilities for this team to win games.

I better be seeing a very desperate Ranger team tonight. I expect them to jump all over Atlanta early.

I think we win tonight 5-2.

I always thought the line of Avery-Anisimov-Lisin has always played well together whenever they were together. But obviously that wont happen tonight. Putting Lisin on the 4th line is stupid Torts has done that in the past. Watching him skate with a real slow skater like Shelley would be comical. If you are going to play him use him on the third line.

If Lisin actually proved his worth elsewhere, he'd get playing time.

I love how Rangers fans preach accountability, but when a player like Lisin is a non-factor game in, game out he is being shafted.

His last few games he drew penalties with his speed, got in on the forecheck taking the body and created some chances. Not sure how thats being a non-factor. As a matter of fact I would say he's done everything Torts wants out of him except score so if thats the reason he's sitting I'm not sure why Drury isn't sitting as well. Lisin is 23 years old now? What do we lose by letting him play and see if he can get something going towards the end here?

I had 2 terrible nights at work so I'll be watching this game while drinking... heavily. Either I'll be really happy and celebrating or I'll be too drunk to remember it... I think I'm ok with either ending...

With that said, I'm hoping for a win tonight and I think this is one of those Rangers look really good games that fool us for a few days and make us think we could get into/go deep in the playoffs.

I agree Lisin has been disappointing this season and has not played well. But if your going to play him you might as well put him in the right spot to try to maximize his ability. You are better off playing Voros instead if you plan on playing him on the 4th line. But whatever it doesn't really matter with how often Torts switches up his lines.

Sean handled the benching by taking the high road

Quote:
"Whenever I get my next opportunity that's what I'm going to have to do," said Avery, who when asked what exactly he meant, responded, "I'm going to keep that to myself."
Quote:
"I'm a professional and every time I put on my skates to play I have a job to do," Avery said when asked if the constant line-shuffling and varying ice time have been obstacles. "Like I said, we're in a real hard playoff race, we need the two points, so I hope the guys play hard and get it done.

"We need every point."

Can the WWE arrange a cage match between Larry Brooks and Torts?

Quote:
Avery certainly hasn't been a force this season, bounced from line to line, his minutes fluctuating wildly. Tortorella has liked to say that he and Avery have an understanding, but unless Tortorella would rather lose without Avery than win with him, it's impossible to understand what understanding the coach is talking about.

To wit: Avery has consistently been able to distract Ilya Kovalchuk when on the ice against the elite sniper. He completely threw Kovalchuk off his game during the first-round sweep of Atlanta in 2007 when No. 17 was with the Thrashers. He did it in the final minutes of the Rangers' 3-1 victory over New Jersey on Feb. 6 in Kovalchuk's first game at the Garden as a Devil.

This past Wednesday, Avery got into a verbal exchange with Kovalchuk at 3:16 of the first period while lined up for a defensive zone draw before a linesman stepped in break it up. Tortorella immediately pulled Avery's line from the ice. Avery barely got on against Kovalchuk the rest of the night.
