And that is based on what? Because he made fun of Dion Phaneuf?

You witnessed yourself how good he was for the Rangers. I fail to see what you're talking about.

The Rangers DO have bigger problems that you think, obviously.

Your comments are ignorant, because no one is saying anything about him being a savior or Sather expecting him to.

That's like saying the Devils had more problems then we thought last year because they acquired Salvador instead of a scorer.

Obviously the Devils DID have more problems but that's not the argument.

You do what you can to help the team in any way possible.


EVERYONE in the league needs another scoring winger and a defenseman that can move the puck and help the powerplay.

Does Avery address these needs? No.

But he helps the overall team. Much like Salvador did.

Read the HF Board rules and stay away from the personal attacks. Plus, your logic is weak at best. Avery is a locker room cancer and his Ranger baby-sitter is now a Devils, but if Sather wants him back and all you Ranger fans are on board, great! Enjoy his return.

Pure conjecture at best. Show me the proof of either of those two statements.

Personal attacks? For calling you ignorant?

You're probably a liberal.


Locker room cancer? In LA? Sure. In Dallas where the team refused to give him a chance? Maybe. Not in New York. He might've irritated players but if you read my post earlier in the thread you'd know that I DON'T CARE how much he pisses the players off when they're not on the ice. They should've played better without him.

And if it's too hard for you to hear someone call your post ignorant, go back to YOUR board.

If anyone has the right to call your comments on Sean Avery ignorant, it's a RANGERS fan who watched him every second he was here. Especially when the person making the comments is a DEVILS fan who has animosity towards him.

Ignorant.

This is the main board, not the Ranger board. But since it seems like you have this man-crush on Avery and can't accept any criticism about him, when it’s been well documented, maybe it's you who should stick to the Ranger board and do your there.

I could see why Renney haters would like to bring Avery back to NYR though.
I agree but then who the heck knows really. Fact is that the Rangers went less than all out to keep Avery. That could be some indication of his effect on the team mates around him.

What the evil part of me would love to see is that the Rangers re-acquire Avery and hell promptly follows. The Rangers locker room goes in the trash. The team struggles for the rest of the season, but manages to eek out a birth. They play the Debs in the first round, but go down 3-0. At MSG in game four, Avery starts in with Marty and gets his arse kicked by Shanny.

Debs fans serenade the Rangers and their fans on home ice.

On the Rangers bench Avery can be seen yelling at team mates and coaches.

Rangers lose series 4-0.

Avery is booed and flips the fans the bird as he heads to the Rangers locker room.

Maybe that would FINALLY teach some folks a lesson.

If it looks, smells, and tastes like cancer...well it's probably cancer.

That being said I think the Rangers will actually be getting a great player this year. He will be more focused than he has been possibly since he entered the league, like he should have been when he signed that absurd contract with Dallas. If it will carry on into following years I'm not convinced, but this year at least I think he will be a good addition for NY. Win-win for both teams (well as much as it can be for the Stars with having to pay half his contract, but he is gone so it is a win in my book).
Are you sure about that? Part of what makes him effective is because he had a mean streak. The Avery soap opera this year is nowhere as bad as Bertuzzi's, but poor Todd was never the same once he took the sandpaper part out of his game.

Whatever anger management therapy he took, the guy loves to be in front of a camera more than playing hockey. If it works out for the Rags, good for them. I'd watch Devs - Rags games for sure. However, as Habs fan, I hoped that little SOB would stay in the West....

Ha, worst post yet.

I'm sorry to tell you but the Rangers are gonna grab one of the last playoff spots with or without Avery.

And the Rangers were very interested in keeping Avery, just not for the price Dallas offered him, and for good reason, Dallas overpaid.

Avery is a disgrace to hockey. He has no honor or respect for the game or other players. The NHL is better off without him in it.

If the Rangers want to lay down with dogs in their desperation to salvage their season one can only hope they wake up with a nasty case of fleas.

How many times hes posted really has no bearing on what he says. You stated earlier that he is nothing but a locker room cancer and that Shanny was his babysitter, I asked for proof, yet have seen none.

Perhaps you need to join Avery in his anger management program? Why do you care so much anyway, it's pretty clear you're a Devils fan and you think Avery is trash. If anything, Avery with the Rags should be a desirable thing for you, unless you haven't got over his little dance in front of Brodeur and calling him a fatty.

Given the possibility that the Rangers could wind up playing the Devils in the first round (really, just about any matchup is possible in the East at this point), re-acquiring Avery would seem to be a decent move for the Rangers if for no other reason than to use him to hopefully get Brodeur off his game.
