Meant to be: Avery rejoins Rangers

November 2nd 2011 01:31
Love him or hate him, and he boasts plenty of supporters and detractors, there IS a place in the NHL for Sean Avery.

Once again, the forward's place is with the New York Rangers as he cleared waivers Tuesday and will rejoin the team he has played for most of the last five seasons.

Avery, 31, is one of the most controversial players to ever take the ice, both for his style and his BIG mouth, which have drawn both suspensions and criticism from opposing players and hockey analysts.

Avery, who has been accused of making racist comments and who DID make an inappropriate remark about an ex-Hollywood girlfriend, can be an effective agitator and scorer at times.

He scored 20 points in 29 games toward the end of the 2007season to help the Blueshirts complete a playoff push.

Avery can also giveth or taketh away by distracting opposing goalies which can help his team score or propel him into the penalty box.

He didn't score in this preseason, prompting a move to the team's Connecticut Whale minor league affiliate.

Although Avery himself doubted he had an NHL return left in him, he played fairly well there and got a spot as a replacement for the injured Mike Rupp.

It will be interesting to see how this return to the Rangers goes.

This move isn't really a game-changer for anybody and is one of those moves that gets press because of what Avery says and stuff like that. He's not really worth the contract right now, but the Rangers are just looking for depth.
