Get Avery To New York Now

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,

Today would be as good a time as any even if Avery, who played his first game for the Wolf Pack in last night’s 4-1 loss to Manitoba, might need another game or two to build his stamina, After claiming Avery on re-entry, the Rangers could assign him to Hartford for conditioning.

“I think [the NHL] is where I belong; that’s the type of player I am,” said Avery, who had last played 11 weeks ago today for the Stars in Edmonton. “But in saying that, I’m just happy to be playing here and I’ll worry about [the NHL] when the time comes.”...

Two NHL teams with the right to claim Avery on re-entry before the Rangers - Tampa Bay and Toronto - had scouts at the match, though neither is believed interested. Unless there’s a shocker, he’s the Rangers.

Also from Brooks,

Wade Redden is Glen Sather’s Folly. That has become painfully obvious fewer than 60 games into a six-year, $39 million contract that stands as the worst in the history of the NHL, if not in the history of hard-cap pro sports.

With skills declining so precipitously over the last three seasons that if he played baseball, one would deduce that he had built his previously admirable career resume on PED’s, the 31-year-old defenseman is the GM’s Greatest Mistake, far more substantial than Stephane Quintal or Theo Fleury or Bobby Holik, or any of those pre-lockout signings that all came with erasers.
