Would The Rangers Really Waive Avery?

via Chirstopher Botta of Slap Shot at the NY Times,

The Rangers’ shift-disturbing wing has neither played nor misbehaved his way out of the lineup. Avery appears to trail Mats Zuccarello for the final forward position available and is joined in the battle for a job by the youngsters Dale Weise and Carl Hagelin and the veteran shootout specialist Erik Christensen. The Rangers possess more depth than they’ve had in years. Unless Avery shines in the team’s final five preseason games, starting Monday in Philadelphia, he could be placed on waivers and start the season with the minor league affiliate in Connecticut.

I don’t think his act plays well with Tortorella.  He seems to be a media pet.  To be fair he can play well but is inconsistent.  I doubt anyone will grab him in view of hid history and salary.  He could be recalled and provide a jump later in the season if need be.  He’s also insurance.  Lot of Rangers miss games with injuries.  Mostly because of the style they play.
