"And the fans, too. I think they're pretty passionate, and I remember when I was here how hard of a time they give the visiting team. That's the type of atmosphere I like to play in. I'm kind of an intense guy, and when the fans are intense, it's easy to play. It makes it like having an extra guy on the ice."

and THATS where we, as fans, are responsible for whats happening on the ice.
im not saying that "lazy/silent fans" is an excuse for lazy/sloppy play.. but youve gotta lit their ***** when its not going well.

unfortunately that wont happen when you have pessimists who would rather hope for a high draft pick instead!

As I learned quite early with Jagr... you cannot judge a player's reputation by his past, you only judge him on what he does for your team..

Avery has been a great addition.

Not at all. Avery would 've sad the same things about any team he would had been traded to. Typical PR buy a sharp guy. I like him, but don't make more that it was - a polite acknowledgment.

Well played, sir!

I'm loving the effect that Avery's attitude seems to be having on the team. His intensity appears to have rubbed off a bit on everyone else.

I think the bigger problem is that almost everyone who sits in the purple seats doesn't know/care about hockey and are there as a social function. My family has had seats there since the Garden opened, and I have been going since I was pre-natal (my mom got hit with a puck while she was pregnant with me), and over the last 15 years my section has gone from a lot of long-time season ticket holders who were really into the game, to corporate seats and seats held onto by the Garden for VIPs. As a result, everyone I grew up rooting with and talking to about hockey have given up their seats and I spend most of the game listening to people ask what offsides is fourteen times rather than cheering when Ortmeyer throws his body in front a slapper from the point and makes a great defensive play. As loud as the 400s might get during key moments of the game when the crowd needs to be into it, the purples have no heart, and the noise never makes it to the ice where it counts.

I would love to see him stick around for a while, he plays the type of game that gets the fans into the game. You can never have too many of those guys on your team.

I've liked his play so far but he's my favorite Ranger behind Jagr after that article. He's not just full of character but obviously pretty damn intelligent and very humble. Awesome pick up.

Those seats were mainly corporations in the 80's, I know, my Dad worked for one and we had his companies tix a few times a year back then. Right behind the Rangers penalty box. They were red seats back then, when the blues were TRUE blues - pot/cigarette smoking, drinking, gambling, fornication - yes, it was the 80's

That may be true, I'm not old enough to know, but in the 90's basically until Gretzky came to NYC, the purples were loud and people knew what was going on. Now when I go to games there are a dozen empty seats in my section and most of the people who show up know nothing. It's frustrating, because when I try to be loud and get people around me into the game I get weird looks and security guards start hanging around waiting for me to do something that will get me in trouble.

Bottom line - if you want to act like a 'fanatic', you can't sit in those sections, you have to find the 'blue collar' sections

Which is why I discount pretty much every article that comes from that site.

you know, that was my first thought aswell, but read closely, its a statement he made before he was traded. he said it in the los angeles media guide.

Err ... because those who want a high draft pick aren't critical of poor or lazy play?

Good luck with that proposition.

Yes, this is a fluff article, but its not something just whipped up. Obviously, it is on Newyorkrangers.com because its neither legitimate news or relevant to the league. As nice as it may be to read, the only purpose of it is to make the fans feel good about themselves and the franchise.

I like what I have seen out of him so far, this team needs a little edge and grittyness and he brings that to the table... not to mention a smoking hot gf...

Avery got jump

I like this dude...I think he's a perfect fit for the club...I hate to see jason go...but I think we made out in the deal. His game has been pretty good so far...Like Avery said.... lets see 15 games.

I hope we can continue our good play and gain some ground on Carolina ...
