Sean Avery Not Expecting Recall to NYR

From Pat Leonard at The Blueshirts Blog:

Avery was asked whether he expects the Rangers to recall him from the Connecticut Whale. He was sent through waivers to the minors on Oct. 4 while still with the team in Sweden.

The winger told ESPNNewYork.com, “Probably not. I doubt it,” and said of whether the Rangers gave him a fair chance to make the NHL roster: “I’d say it’s pretty obvious. I’ll let everyone else decide for themselves.”

Tortorella received the news of Avery’s comments after Wednesday morning’s skate in Vancouver before the Blueshirts flew east to Calgary for Thursday night’s game against the Flames. But the coach wasn’t interested in revisiting the Avery saga, coming off a 4-0 win over the Canucks but with many issues still to address with his team’s play.

Who cares? Honestly?
Avery was a marginal NHL player with a big mouth and great fashion sense.
The AHL is probably where he should have been the last couple of years.

The genius of this guy is the fact he has convinced the New York Media that he’s a superstar.  He’s a 3rd or 4th liner. At best.
