One has to wonder weather or not he will be worth the money he will be seeking in the off season. I feel that the money may be better spent on talented scorers, who are less of a risk to themselves and the team.

By constantly having our top guys out of th lineup doesn't help a team that is struggling to being with.

This trade deadline should be a very busy one. Because this team is not winning anything this year, as currently constructed.

There is no guarantee that this team will make it far in the playoffs, however there is a guarantee that there will be a season next year and in future years. Therefore, you make moves to ensure the future health of the franchise. No dealong of Cherepanov, Staal, or Sanguinetti. Trade some of the vets for first rounders, ect.

And by the time those first rounders pan out, Drury and Gomez will be "vets".

There are times where Avery has held up when he really could have thrown himself at guys and finished his check. I don't mind that, I realize that there's some value to self-preservation once in a while.

I hope someone reels Phaneuf in and tells him to tone it down. You just can't go out every shift and throw hits like nothing if you want to be an impact player. I don't want him to end up like Kloucek.

Avery has been on the decline of value to the Rangers since the start of season, and is looking at no contract boost with the way he's been playing when he actually can, and the injury prone man he has become.

I really see him on the decline in Ranger blue...


Avery to DET for Zetterberg?

Some players hit like Phaneuf their entire career without breaking down but they are special. I think Phaneuf might be that kind of special and I wish the Rangers had someone like him, or even better, him.

Comapring Avery and Phaneuf is like comparing a used Buick and a new Ferrari, even if it's a feisty Buick.

Mind you, I never compared Avery and Phaneuf. What I said is that players who are constantly hitting hard and looking to have a few big hits during each game would have a higher probability of shortening their career, than a guy like Avery. Phaneuf was the first hard-hitter that came to my head.

Avery's latest injury had nothing to do with the way he plays or how "fiesty" he is. He was slashed on the hand, and now he has to deal with it.

Accidents and injuries happen but the way Avery plays it's not hard to understand why his body might take more of a beating than your average player.

You can resume shaking your head now.
its just one of those seasons for Avery, these things happen, its never fun when they do, Avery should add some extra flap padding to his gloves to give him more protection, mant players do it, i've done it, a few inchs extra padding is the diffrence between being injured or not.

one a positve note these injurys aren't career threating knee, back, head. I would not say he is brittle, just unluckly.

it has nothing to do with Avery being the way he is, that night, the Rangers payers must have been slashed at least 3-4 times, mainly by Antropov and to think the refs never called any penelties on him for that. He injured Prucha also in tthat game with the slashing. So it isn't Avery's fault or anyone elses fault that he was injured, maybe the refs cause if they calledi it 2 Rangers wouldn't have been injured

Ouch @ Tyutin losing several teeth. Craig McDonald, whose stick hit Tyutin, should know how Fedor feels having lost something like six teeth earlier this year when he was high-sticked.

Avery has been hit hard by the injury bug this year.

That Macdonald is one tough irishmen,the damage to his mouth was ridiculous. The Lighting expected him to miss a few games he came right back & played the next game.

Avery, meanwhile, is not expected to be out much longer than the next couple of games. Dr. Martin Posner, the hand specialist the Rangers have on retainer, believes Avery is genetically predisposed to the type of wrist problems that have plagued him in recent seasons. However, Posner does not believe that surgery is necessary to remove the bone chip that has been floating in Avery's right hand since last season.

Instead, Posner advised Avery to let the discomfort in his right hand and wrist settle down for a week to 10 days, at which point he is expected to be able to return to the lineup

good news, I guess. It's kind of a catch-22 though. He shouldn't fight, at least at the moment, with those bad wrists, but in order to play his game effectively, he's going to be pissing guys off who will want to fight him, and might be more inclined to slash him and stuff if he won't fight.

I'm a reaching a bit, but still. Wouldn't surprise me if other players were more likely to slash Avery

Avery played a league-high 84 games last year... sure, he's had a rough time of it (health wise) this season, but these things happen in this sport. It doesn't mean he's brittle. This isn't soccer, folks.

That sentence sends up an enormous red flag to me.

I'm sure Avery didn't like hearing that doctor use that particular term. Will Sather use that in negotiations?

Upon further thought about this genetic thing I would let Avery walk after this season.

I could see that.

Sather: Mr. Avery you're genetically predisposed of never making more than $2 mil a year.

Avery: Go **** yourself.
