No, in fact you can take Jody Shelley and let those two beat each other up.

We'll just stick with Rinaldo and Sestito.

Rinaldo hits people, and backs it up with his fighting.

Avery is a ***** who yacks at people and doesn't back himself up. He'd rather "kill Giroux" and model for a magazine meanwhile his teammates are spending their time with under privileged kids in that area helping them learn hockey and giving them some sense of enjoyment.

Haven't been watching 24/7 much, have you?

There's one section where Sestito sits drops about 20 f-bombs while on the bench yapping @ someone on the Rags bench .

He and Rinaldo definitely talk.

They also don't suck defensively or offensively and aren't "just" enforcers, so I obviously like them more than Avery.

If you can't afford to pay for cable let me tell you just how much yapping Sestito was doing in the last episode! All this to say, I knew you weren't in love with the guy, I just thought you would see the entertainment value in it! So much for brotherly love!!!

You clearly haven't watched much of the Flyers.

Unless we're trying to win a meaningless fight in the classic instead of the actual game, Sestito and Rinaldo are 10x better than Avery as actual hockey players.

Heck, I'd actually take Sestito for a fight over Avery too, so Avery would be pretty much useless.

I dunno where you get the idea that Sestito and Rinaldo are worse than Avery... there's a reason Avery is on wavers and Sestito and Rinaldo are comfortably still part of our team.

"not in love with the guy" doesn't really describe it.

No thanks.


By the way, just being straight here, but if you're pro-Avery and anti-Torts, you should probably re-evaluate your standards.

Pretty much everyone yaps like that, particularly the grit guys.

The truth is though that Rinaldo and Sestito go out, run around, bang bodies, and play aggressive HOCKEY as well.

Avery doesn't do much hockey or much fighting. He's become Jody Shelley. That's why he's getting waived.

And even then, Jody Shelley doesn't threaten to kill people and is actually liked by his teammates/coaches as unfortunate a situation as that puts us in as fans. I'm not entirely sure Avery has that.

That ship has sailed already in my opinion.....When he was sent down to the minors i actually liked the idea of the Flyers picking him up because as crazy as Avery is, i could see him contributing to our club,and i thought it would be epic to have him lace em up for the classic wearing Flyer Orange, it would of added a whole different kind of Buzz and story line to the HBO 24/7 lead up and the classic etc. After all Pro Hockey is all about entertainment and packing the seats night in and night out.Hated players fill the seats just as much as the stars do, 1974 was a great example of that ?.....Having said that, our club has some youngsters that are really coming along nicely, and a few of them have a similar edge that Avery has, but they don't have the extra baggage he brings which is Avery's downside and it out weights the talent he has too often.....

Not so sure why many Ranger fans dislike Torts ? I think he has done a nice job with your club, and your players seem to be responding well with Calahan's leadership adding a nice bit of good direction and grit to his style of coaching....

The reason why Avery is waived is because Torts has a bigger ego and it's a personal thing. The fact that Rinaldo and Sestito are on your roster just goes to show how little depth you guys truly have!

A primary argument why it would never be considered even as an online diversion:

No offense dude, but between Avery and Torts, given their personal histories, I'm taking the guy with the ring on his finger.

I hate Torts, but I respect the hell out of him. Anyone that doesn't is a moron. Case and point: Sean Avery.

You're right... it's totally ridiculous that we have a guy like Zac Rinaldo on our 4th line.
