Couldn't have waited until after the WC?



Also pisses me off that EC is still up here.

at this point, what ever.

Yet EC remains on the roster?

At least you are consistent Torts.

Saw this coming from a mile away. Don't think Avery was given a fair chance again to win a spot but whatever, what's done is done.

As soon as Wolski comes back, I want EC gone and Mitchell as the 13th forward.

No surprise here. No team wanted to trade for him.

And yeah i'm pissed EC is still here too, however, it really has nothing to do with the players imo. More salary based than anything else.

This is no surprise, unfortunately.

It would be nice if the Rangers didn't re-assign him until after the WC to at least let him experience from a pressbox, but I always have to remind myself that this is in fact, a business.

Voros and Avery reunion in Hartford!

Prust,Boyle,Mitchell,Christensen,Wolski,Rupp- Guys who have scored less.
Dubinsky= Goal Scoring

Glad Torts preaches accountability.

Come on. You think Torts would ever do something to give Avery a benefit?

Prust, Boyle, Mitchell, Wolski and Rupp- Guys who bring 10 times more than Avery does.

Dubinsky- What were you even trying to say here?

I AM glad Torts preaches accountability. Has EC suited up recently? No. Look at the standings.

Rupp? Guy has been awful. Mitchell? Yeah great turnover to blow last game. Boyle? Guy is 6-7 and plays like he's 5-8.

Dubinsky has 3 goals. So Does Avery.

sorry, but Mitchell is a borderline AHL'er. Rupp is also not a player that can provide a team more than what Avery provides.

Your disdain for Avery is showing.

Aside from Boyle's season last year, he's also borderline better.

again it comes down to Avery is a UFA at 1.9 million. He is not part of the future. Like it or not Rupp is signed for 2 more yrs at 1.5 mil

Mitchell is indeed a borderline NHL/AHLer but when everyone is healthy he's a 12/13th F and the most important thing is cheap on the cap

EC blows but he is under a million the cap as well.

I can agree with this reasoning 100%

But please, don't insult my intelligence by trying to sell me a bill of goods where eithe ror both Mitchell ro Rupp are better players than Avery.

Cap considerations, yes, Avery goes I agree.

Ability to help a team actually win games? There's a list 3 players deep before you get to Avery and one could argue that Boyle could make that list 4 players deep.

Prust? He's an average 4th liner who can fight. Talk to me when he scores 15 goals or 40 points in a season.

Wolski? When does he bring anything? He floats constantly and doesn't know what the word defense means. Also plays like he's 5'6 when he's 6'3.

Mitchell is a borderline NHL'er that's playing over his head right now.

Avery has as many goals as Dubinsky in 20 less games.

Boyle? Boyle is ****ing garbage this season. I don't ever want to hear anyone supporting his play. Boyle forgot what conditioning and skating in the offseason are, and came back SLOWER and less physical than last season, and it's shown so far. What did he do, drink all summer?

This is a joke.

Agreed, this is all abouot salary, and the fact that Torts hates the guy.
As far as trying to convince me that Boyle, Rupp, EC, Mitchell bring more to the table only leads me to believe you live on this site and don't actually watch any of the games. all around poor decision by management, but I guess we will have to move on and accept that it's all about Torts and not the team!
