Avery is done as a NYR. Maybe done as a hockey player. Not quite the ending I expected.

He was not on the clear-day roster for the Whale so he can not participate in the AHL playoffs. They decided to put another player on there in his place.

his value must be more than negative then since he is not even playing. Still surprised he didnt go on waivers by the trade deadline. Its not like his cap hit will hurt now

Oh well...he is smarter than a lot give him credit for . He is a multi Millionaire and not working and still on payroll...not bad for a guy with probably grade 12 education and marginal skills and undoubtedly set for life and still at a young age .

Why the hell did these teams not pick him up when they could have esp Cal Avery would be top 6 easy on that team. Makes no sense what do they have to lose. Its to late now though lol. no playoffs again for Cal.

If Avery is still serious about continuing his hockey career (which no one really knows at the moment besides him), somebody will give him a 1 year deal at close to the league minimum this offseason.

If so, I wonder what reaction he'll get his first time back at MSG.

He was on our team for a year and a half what does that tell you. And trust their are teams he would be, esp Calgary. Even if he was on the third line if he wants to play hes a major help for the team aquiring him.

I can't imagine he isn't gonna retire.

There isn't a team in the NHL that couldn't use his amazing vision, agitation, and hard work on their top two lines, including the NYR. It's a shame what Torts' hate has done to his career. A crying shame.

Really? top 6?? There is NO team that can be good with avery in their top 6. I actually like Avery, but when I hear things like this it makes me not want to like him.

Honestly, Avery can be good on teams in the nhl playing in the bottom 6. Avery is never going to be a guy that is going to take a team over the top with this goal scoring/play-makikng ability, its time for people to just stop already.

And for people that are going to question torts for not playing him, I'm just going to say look at the standings....Enough already with this

You must be thinking of a different Avery.

He hasn't been an agitating force for the last couple seasons now, and Torts is having no part of the countless penalties having him play for us would inevitably cause. You don't want your team being short-handed simply because the refs are looking for nearly any reason to flex their whistles at this guy. Sad, but true. Him simply being in the line up would be hindering this team.

Amazing vision? I don't have to say much about this, he just doesn't have any sort of amazing quality to his hockey sense.

He has absolutely NO place on NYR's top 6. Plain and simple. And as far as hard work..if he was really a hard worker, he would have stepped his game up during his time in the AHL to prove he belongs back in the NHL on a big-time club. He hasn't, case closed. We have no room for Avery back on this team in any capacity.

Hahahahaha. Khelvan strikes again.

FYI - I'm not sure exactly when it happened, but at some point after all the ridiculous arguments with Avery fans over the years, Khelvan decided to simply start posting borderline over the top praise of him every time he is mentioned.

Fantastic that he's still in character all these many months later.

Avery's days with the NYR organization pretty much done. Told today no need to show up in Connecticut.
Farewell, Sean.

Rangers informed Avery today he is not on AHL Whale post-season roster & should no longer report for practices or games. Last played 1/27.

I'm not getting why the Rangers have to be *******s about this.

If he did something wrong to the organization, ok, great, dont play him.

But why not put him on re-entry waivers and let another team grab him? Yes, it will cost us half the cap hit(about $1) for just this season. But trade deadline is over so its not like we need the cap room or something for a trade!

My guess was they wanted to make sure if they needed that extra cap space they had it on Monday. Call-ups had to be made by Friday I believe. Looks like they full intended in making some deals, but the chips didn't fall where they wanted.

its not like Averys been a good soldier down there. he was a total ****** and earned his benchings. Wolski got himself a trade out of here because he was a good soldier. Avery, not so much.

The Rangers yesterday informed Sean Avery he will not be on the AHL Whale’s post-season roster while also instructing the winger to longer report to the rink for club practices or games.

The dictate followed myriad incidents between Avery and the staffs in Connecticut and New York that could be classified as, “related to discipline,” all of which occurred after general manager Glen Sather declined to place the winger on re-entry waivers the second week of January when requested to do so by another NHL club.
Quote:
Avery, assigned to the Whale after clearing waivers on Dec. 31, apparently believed he could force his way out of the AHL by confronting management rather than wait for Sather to oblige as it grew nearer to the deadline.

Avery has not played in a game for the Whale since Jan. 27 and has not practiced with the team for approximately three weeks, instead skating on his own under management orders.

Avery should have kept his mouth shut and been a good little boy.

As a true Ranger fan, and a huge Avery fan I'm not going to get into a useless battle with those who think he doesn't have the skill set to play in the NHL. But what I will say is this, and sorry as I mentioned it in another post, but if Torts is hoping to play with more edge by having both Scott and Rupp in the lineup, big mistake. Avery is easily the better player out of all three and can still easily get other players to take dumb penalties! Please don't even bother responding to my post if you are going to tell me that both Scott and Rupp are better players!!

They aren't we got scott for a fear factor. Rupp is here for some toughness and the playoffs...Avery has that edge but probably hates us now, so it's game over :[
