Avery placed on re-entry waivers

34 posts in this topic

Not when the Rangers have made it so public that they're bringing him in. To the point where Sather actually said the coach will learn to love Sean like we do.

I'm not sure what happens after another team claims Avery though if they try to send him to the minors.

the upside: a 3rd round pick, maybe

the downside: having sather say 'haha, thanks but no thanks, he's all yours' - then you have to bury him in the minors or pay him to go away - the waiver claim itself costs a 5 figure sum, plus avery's salary is 2/9ths of 4 million dollars, or something like $900,000.

If he does go to the Rangers, then I think we should give Marty the night off. The next time we play them is the 30th of this month, so we should start whoever our backup is at that point, whether it's Clemmer or Weekes. I know Marty can handle him, but I don't want to take any chances around playoff time.

What kind of p*ssy attitude is that? Are you fvcking kidding me with this?

We got Holik, and the single thing Bobby's good at is illegally hitting someone (Avery).

Oh how I would love to see a great interference hit on avery like on Asham the other day. Like one of those when he acts like "oh uh didn't see ya there and continues to climb over the guy and push him when hes down". Neither of them fight though, It's weird those years with Janssen around he never got a piece of him, I mean even hollweg hiked up his skirt and fought him. I just wish for the rags they didn't call instigators cuz He really needs a good pummeling along with Rutuu, downie, Hollweg. This kinda players always seem to fire me up lol

I don't think Avery is going to help the RAGS. Even if he does, we are a different team than last year.

No worries IMO.

He's not exactly tearing up the AHL - two goals, one assist, 8 PIM, -2 rating in 8 games.

I still would rather seem someone else claim him first. Not fear of him being back with the Rangers, just that I want to see this whole back-alley collusion business with the Rangers and Stars blow up in both their faces. C'mon Isles, you know you wanna pick up Avery at half price. Hell, you can even dress him for the Isles/Rangers game Thursday and dangle him in front of them, really rub it in.

Yeah, it won't happen. But it would be so riotously funny if it did.

If avery does end up with the rags when we vs them on the 30th Marty better play and we better hit him every single chance we can.

Knowing Sather, wouldn't surprise me if he told Avery to ease up and float in the AHL to diminish his value to any another team that might pluck him in re-entry. If he looks bad, why would anyone want him and it puts the Rags in much better position to claim him without a team sniping him.

Other then that, i am still of the belief that this clown does not care about being a hockey player anymore.
