A Return To The NHL For Avery?

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,

The Rangers are discussing the possibility of placing Sean Avery on re-entry waivers at noon Saturday, the deadline for doing so, in order for the exiled winger to play again in the NHL this season, The Post has learned.

According to NHL By-laws 12 and 28, players claimed on re-entry following the trade deadline are not eligible to play in either the remainder of the regular season or in the playoffs.

With the NHL trade deadline Monday at 3 p.m., and the weekend waiver period lasting for 48 hours, the Rangers would thus have to make their decision regarding Avery no later than Saturday morning so he would be eligible for claim by noon Monday.

If Avery is claimed on re-entry, the Rangers would be hit with a $209,460 salary cap charge for the remainder of the season. If Avery were to go unclaimed, the Rangers would simply put him back on waivers and re-assign him to the AHL Whale after he clears.

Call me crazy, but I don’t think I’d be opposed to Avery on the Red Wings.  The Wings need a prick like him, and not to mention, he’s a good all around player as well.

Chelios himself would drive down to The Joe and beat the snot out of avery if Kenny were to sign him. No way Detroit claims that turd. He hurts his team more than he helps and that’s why the Rangers demoted him, duh.
He once was an effective pest when he could score occasionally but then he lost his offensive skills and now he’s not worth the headache.

Chelios btw has stated long ago publicly how much he dislikes avery and he still works for the team and course owns several restaurants in the metro area.

Rather see Steve Ott wearing the Winged Wheel.

Yeah, I remember reading that Ken Holland publicly said the reason he traded Avery was because he lacks respect for the game, and I don’t think Avery’s done anything in the past 10 years to show that he’s changed…
