John Dellapina said it was just for rest

I love Avery. Seriously, he better be locked up for at least 4 years this offseason.

Yeah, he took a pounding last night. I think Hill crunched him a good 12 times into the boards. Not to mention the beatings around DP. This guy is tough as nails!

One thing I really don't like though, is when players dive and he's notorious for it. That doesn't get my respect.

Yea, but I did not think his diving penalty last night was deserved, that is one of those cases where his reputation hurt him

You guys have no idea how amazing it is to see fans of his own team who appreciate him. It's quite refreshing, though I must admit, I'm still not used to Rangers fans referring to him as "ours" and I definitely don't like it but that's obviously not your faults.
Continue the Avery love.

"Avery's biggest Los Angeles fan"

also maybe Los Angeles' smartest fan? but seriously. what the heck did Kings' fans see wrong with his play? he seems like the perfect agitator who can PLAY. that's a find.

The crazy thing is that Avery is making just $1.1 per year right now. His contract expires at the end of this season.

If the Rangers are smart, they will work on an extension with him NOW, before the season ends and he becomes a UFA or even considers becoming a UFA (I'm sure many teams will be interested in him).

He has 8 points in 13 games with us, and has played his butt off every game. He brings a dimension that the Rangers just dont have...a guy who is a pest, goes to the net AND has skills.

I would not mind giving him $2 per year for the next 4-5 years. I don't think that is an overpayment for what he brings to the team. His offensive numbers are improving and so it would be best to lock him up to a long-term deal now before he becomes a true 20-25 goal guy (he will be that eventually).

He did practice, he spent all morning kicking puppies and taking candy from babies, in the afternoon he flipped off a nun then he sat on Dipietro's front porch and threw snowballs at the mailman. He's allllllll set for tonight...

Oh, you're right.

That is good news, but I still would want to lock him up past the age of 29 so as to avoid him becoming a UFA too soon.

So I think we should give him a 4 or 5 year deal now.

Lost track, I thought we were playing tonight. I heard Avery was headed to the orphanage to tell the kids about Santa Claus, then headed to the zoo to throw poop at the monkeys. He's really taking this rivalry seriously...

I heard the rest of the guys couldn't wait to get out on the ice, because Avery kept standing there running his fingernails down the coaches chalkboard...
