i think avery's an option, but not until after the trade deadline passes. if the rangers still have free cap space, he'll be up. maybe.

i think this team is a good team, one of my favorites in a while, but they seem to lack emotion. Avery was the one who brought the emotion. He tended to force whichever line-mates he was playing with to play hard and mean. I think a team needs someone like that.

I think the off-sides issue is way overblown.

dont think we'll see him though

Avery is not playing on the Whale, nor is he showing up for practices. He is a model and a restauranteur at this point.

of course the rangers need to address the scoring issues, but torts doesnt play like that... a solid defense leads to the victory. the game against the penguins was sloppy at best its not that were missing one key player its that everyone looked like they took that game off...it happens

I like Bickel. I think he's a good 6-8 d-man who can play if needed. He's tough, physical, will fight. I have no problem with him on the roster as a DEFENSMAN. I'm just tired of him playing on a line with Mitchell and Rupp. Granted, you could put Gaborik with those 2 and it wouldn't be a line that will produce many goals, but c'mon now. If Feds isn't healthy, put WW out there. The guy looked good in preseason, got hurt, lost his spot and got 3 games before being sent to the press box. We need goal scoring and are looking to make a trade that may or may not disrupt our chemistry and future depending on who we target/give up. Why not let Wolski play, see if he can put a few pucks in the net and maybe that solves some of our woes. I just don't get it....

oh wait, I forgot this thread isn't supposed to have much logic. Umm.. Avery sucks, Avery is the answer, MZA could solve all our problems if given a chance and uhhh... Bring back Prucha!

Avery hasn't dressed for a game in the AHL for almost a month. He's not going to be recalled.

LOL, that is how soft and bad Wolski is, but they should recall Avery or ya Zucc or someone else not WW, because Bickel is too slow.

as much as I loved avery when he was with us and effective in our lineup, theres no chance hes playing for us again. I do think mitchell has shown flashes sinces hes been called up, but recently his plays been pretty poor. Last night he had a bad game, but so did the rest of the team. The dump and chase didnt fool the pens one bit and took advantage of it especially fluery who helped them breakout almost every time. I wouldnt mind seeing MZA called up to see if he can give the team a bit of a spark, like hagelin and mitchell did when they were called up, but that wont be the fix for our lack of scoring.

If Sean Avery was the player he's being described as in this thread, it's amazing he passed through waivers. Twice.

So until Sean Avery is freed from the blacklist he's been placed on by Torts & the league based on pressure from the liberal media, and able to play on the team where he rightfully should, I'll keep voicing my opinion.

The liberal media?? Listen Tea Party boy, no talking points on the forum. Sean's problems are with the more conservative people in our society who do not like his lifestyle choices and what he says and does off the ice.

Aside from that I agree with you; he should be playing, should have been playing all year and is better than Boyle, Feds, Rupp, Prust and Mitchell. But Torts doesn't like him. It's that simple. And neither Torts nor Slats will ever admit it. But we know it's true.

Not gonna get into another Avery thread, in fact a lot of the pro-Avery people in this thread are new comers (Jan or Feb '12) so I'm always suspicious of troll accounts [/cynical]

However I do believe Sean should have been with the team all season, I strongly believe he's a better option in the bottom 6 than Mitchell, Bickel, and 75% of the time I'd take Avery over Rupp too.

Though I do understand why Avery is not here, I understand that he won't suit up for the Rangers again noted by the fact that the last time he played in a hockey game was nearly a month ago (1/27).

Saw a tweet today from Andy Strickland that said...

At least one star player on the #Sharks has expressed the desire to bring in Sean Avery of all players. Says veterans on team can handle him
I'd love to see Sean get a shot in the NHL again this year, especially if it's out west.

sean avery will not be chanced upon by any team because of the leagues bias against him, saying hes not good enough to be on an nhl roster is just not true, other teams weigh this bias and in my opinion feel its not enough reward, that being said, the rangers need some spark, they seem to be worn down from the heavy checking, heavy shot blocking system that torts employs. Avery has to be considered a better option than mitchell bickel fedotenko boyle even prust at this point. isnt it time to at least give avery or zucc a shot to reenter the lineup.

So every GM of every team fails to see the strengths of this declining hockey player because of "bias". I really don't think that's a very solid argument. I've always likes Sean, and I thought he should have made the team out of camp, but come one and get real: The guy hasn't played a game or even attended a practice since mid january.

There is no room for Zuc, as much as I'd love to see him make it with the Rangers. I suppose you could play him with Dubi and Boyle on the third line and have Prust play with Rupp and Mitchell/Bickel/Feds(when healthy), but he wouldn't really be a good fit on there either.

As for Avery, we would risk him getting claimed on re-entry waivers or more likely: we would risk him sucking.

I like them both and I think here are teams in this league who could use them next year - I really hope they are picked up and do well there, but they are both done as New York Rangers.

I understand that the bandwagon here is "useless trash Mitchell is better than Avery," but if you watched the playoffs in 07 and 08 you'd realize you're wrong.
