No offense, but if this feels like Leetch to you I don't know what to say. Leetch was/meant 10000000000000000000000000000000000000000x more to the Rangers then Avery ever was, and that's not a diss on Avery.

To me it feels like Sather has a way of insulting players who have been faithful to us, who have been fan favorites. No sense of loyalty.

It's a salary-cap era. The only loyalty Sather should be showing is to the jersey and the fans.

Good luck.

His time here was good, when he wasn't hurt. I don't blame him for going to Dallas. I mean how often does a player become a UFA? Time to move on.

Oh but what a season and a half it was. We finished first in our division and conference, won a cup, and played inspired every night, and no team dared mess with us because of our toughness.

There's just no excuse to letting him go the more I think about it. A part of me wants to believe that maybe Avery really is a psycho behind closed doors and he just wore out his welcome with his teammates, coaches, etc. I don't really know how to make logic of it...I just know that this stings worse than when we've been knocked out of the playoffs the last 2 years. I'm not going to get over losing Avery for a while, especially considering how much he really wanted to come back here.

You know what? Avery probably isn't worth $4 million per. But sometimes you've just gotta bite the bullet and spend money on a guy who's as popular amongst the fans as Avery was. We'll move on...we always do. We all know, though, that it's not like this is even going to be the last time Sather does this with a fan favorite.

You and I are amongst a small crowd who don't find Avery as a Christ like figure. I threw up in my mouth a bit reading "it reminds me of Leetch"

Well I liked him for what he brought to the table, but he's not godlike, he's not irreplacable, and he just wasn't that special of a player. Thats my opinion.

Avery was everything a New York Ranger should be...he went out there and left it all on the line for the garden every shift of every game...there is no doubt we will miss his energy, passion, and of course crazy antics...with that said as important as he was to this team...he is not irreplaceable...its not a 50 goal scorer were losing out on here...its an agitator..a very good one....lets move on


we loved you sean...and i ll bet anyone he will be a New York Ranger again some day

oh also, dont know if it was posted before but, Stan Fischler (yes, senile Stan) has a good perspective on this:

Quote:
So, Dr. Fischler's advice to Jeremy Strauss and other members of the Sean Avery Marching and Chowder Society is simple and to the point: you have three months to GET OVER IT. And, remember, Avery did have a New York contract to sign. Gratitude goes both ways, and apparently Avery had forgotten that the Rangers made him what he is today; but, as another song goes, he "wasn't satisfied."

I will shed no tears over Avery moving on. If we kept him I could have lived with it because he is useful. But I have no problem seeing him go elsewhere for 4 mill a year with limited movement. I would not be surprised if he self-destructed at some point. He brings something different that every team can use, but the intangibles also risk chemistry in the room and can become a huge distraction.

I'm disapointed to say the least, but I preped for this, so.....yea.

I just hope we have that extra jump and edge without him.

THis is basically a whole new team, so who knows.

Sad to see him go, was a huge fan fav and he gave us so many great memories in just a very short time. Hope he does well in DAL.

would have been great to keep him, but the Maven is absolutely right. too much money too long a contract. in 4 years we will all be able to say this was the right move without question. how many games do you think he will actually play in the next 4 years? he is too injury prone, and while effective at time, could completely disappear. he's getting paid top 6 forward money, but honestly no way is he a top 6 forward...

I know everybody on here has their "inside" scoop - but I can tell you what I have heard. As early as February, the word was that Avery would not be offered to come back. I didn't believe it, but the message never changed. Avery had one friend in the locker room, and that friend has either retired or will not return to the Rangers.

I think you just need to trust what Sather and the rest of management has done. This was not strictly about the money.

Comparing Avery to Leetch in any way, shape, or form makes me want to vomit.

I think all those people who are not upset at this are using defense mechanisms or are being overly optimistic.
