Prior to his tenure as Rangers coach, Tortorella was a commentator for TSN. When Avery pulled his locker room comedy routine that earned him the suspension, Torts said on the air:
"He's embarrassed himself, he's embarrassed the [Dallas Stars'] organization, he's embarrassed the League and he's embarrassed his teammates, who have to look out for him. Send him home. He doesn't belong in the league."

Is it possible if he clears, the Rags put him through rentry and he gets claimed again? And therefore Dallas would be on the hook for 2mil, Rags on the hook for 1mil, and the third team gets him for 1mil?

I can't see anyone taking Avery for any reason. NY was his last and only chance when Dallas dumped him. He knew that then and nothing has changed. He's cleaned up his act better but his reputation is still poor and quite frankly he's only effective when he is an ultimate douche and you have to be willing to take an awful risk. I think he played in fear of being "himself" for the last year+ and he's just made himself a 4th liner with some energy by doing so. He's stuck. He can't be himself and he can't not be himself.

I don't think he did anything you can point your finger at as the reason off the ice. I think it's just they dont need to spend 2mm for a 4th line agiator... He's been scratched the last couple of preseason games, etc.

I don't care what happens to this POS as long as the Rangers have to pay out as much as possible for his contract and he is miserable- Then I am happy.

Knowing Avery, hell say something stupid any minute now about the Rangers and how they are a sh!tty organization and he was the leader in the locker room on and off the ice. He was mad ever since he didnt get the C this season and how unappreciated he was.

I would actually be interested in hearing how many Rangers fans really did like him and didnt just defend him because he was part of the team.

I could see the Kings going for him, especially if they could get him cheap.

He was run out of LA for being a complete and utter jackass to his own teammates, including repeated ridiculing of their current captain Dustin Brown over his lisp. Somehow I do not see LA as a destination.

"Jay Pandolfo's last game at Boston University was against the Wolverines," Madden said. "My job was to cover his line. Jay had scored something like 30 goals in 30 games that season. And that was his 31st game. Guess what happened?"

"We always joke about it now," Madden said. "Jay tells me: 'You shut me down that game and you've been shutting me down ever since. The only problem is, now you're playing with me. ' "

I now believe the Rangers have taken the next step towards becoming a legit team. Avery was holding them back...they may now have the "professional attitude" necessary to move forward...

I'm worried now...(no joking either)
