Rangers Could Play Avery on Re-Entry Today

According to the NY Post, the Rangers may place forward Sean Avery on re-entry waivers Before you start celebrating, this isn’t the first step to seeing Avery back on Broadway.

The Post is reporting the Rangers would have to decide by this morning to place No. 16 back on re-entry to allow him the chance to play in the NHL again if he is picked up. If a team does claim him, the Rangers would be charged about $200,000 against the cap for the remainder of the season.

If Avery goes unclaimed, the Rangers would simply put him back on waivers and he’d be returned to the AHL, where he hasn’t played a game for the Connecticut Whale since late January.

I like the Rangers giving Sean another shot at the NHL. I still think he could have helped this team if he were given more of a chance this season, but it is what it is. He loved playing here and really never took a shift off, or never really became a distraction off the ice. 

That often gets forgotten when think about Avery. I don’t believe he’s as bad as people make him out to be all over one dumb remark he made four years ago. I can’t speak for all Rangers fans, but I really appreciate the work and dedication he put in during every shift. Also, who will ever forget his battles — and often victories — over Martin Brodeur.

  1. I think the Rangers could still use him, and I actually listed his name on my piece for Hockey This Week that should be due in a few hours as a guy who might move.
