Avery back to New York?

Fox Sports is reporting that the Rangers are working quite hard on a deal to try to bring Sean Avery back to the Big Apple for the balance of his contract.

Apparently the Rangers have had meetings about Avery and the belief is that Avery would be able to help the Rangers team. HTR also believes that he may be able to give the rangers the spark that they appear to be lacking.

The process of acquiring Avery appears to be quite complicated. Sather is not willing to just make a deal for him because he would then be on the hook for the full salary. In order to get him at half the contract hit toward the cap it is reported that the Stars would have to first put him on waivers and if he clears he would then have to be assigned to the Wolf Pack of the AHL. To complete the process, Avery would then have to be recalled on waivers and have the Rangers pick him up on re-entry.

    This guy is a Class "A", #1, Uber-Douche.  Why the hell would any team want to deal with the side show atmosphere this guy brings with him. 

    Sathers is falling back into the old NY Rangers mode of getting anyone with a name….. sad really. 

    This guy should be banished to the skipping rope area until he realizes how F*cking lucky he is to be in the NHL and quit trying to piss it away by taking every chance he can to be a Douchebag.

    As much as I dislike Avery, I'd trade Redden, Gomez and Rozsival for Avery and a couple of top prospects…

    How desperate are the Stars to get rid of him?

    I would certainly be glad to see Avery back on the team. I don't understand the whole "douche" and how he went too far. He just made a stupid comment people, get over it.

    the last time HTR wrote about Avery i commented that the Rangers would attempt to get him back!!!   Its just a no brainer…. their record with him in their line-up last season compared to their record when he wasn't says it all!!!

    It appears that it is a complicated matter to try to get Avery however.
    Expect Sather to work some magic on this one….hopefully another playoff contender doesn't pull the carpet out from under him at the end of the process and we lose Avery.

    If they do get him expect another deal to upgrade elsewhere or to get an extra pick in order to dump some salary! Either way Sather will be in the drivers seat!

    Lets Go Rangers!

    If it was just a comment and if it was done then that would be great and everyone could move on.  But it will never be done with Avery.  The guy is an attention whore, and he doesn't have the on ice skills to get the attention he craves so you know he'll be back at it again sooner rather then later.
