Dear internet ********,
Guess who’s back? Avery’s back. Tell a friend.
I guess you needed me after all, didn’t you, Torts? I know Tortorella hates it when I call him Torts, so I’mma keep doing it. You sent me down to the whale? IN HARTFORD? You guys know how I feel about whales. You know I have a strict “no fatties” rule.
But it’s good to be back with the Rangers again. I’m very thankful for this opportunity, because I love New York. I am very glad to get another chance with the organization, as opposed to getting stuck in some backwater place like the KHL or worse, Columbus.
I know Torts only called me back up because Mike Rupp’s knee is hurt. Word of advice to Rupper: use some kneepads when you’re blowing dudes in back of the Wendy’s. Glass and stones can hurt—that’s what Taffy and Kira tell me, anyway. I mean, you’re getting 1.5 million a year for 3 years. I don’t know what you had at the Devils, but that’s not a half bad paycheck

To the joy of Sean Avery supporters everywhere, the enigmatic winger is back with the New York Rangers.

Avery is eligible to play in Thursday’s game against the [...]
Sean Avery's NHL return is on hold for at least one more game.
Avery rejoined the New York Rangers for practice Wednesday morning but was ruled out of Thursday night's home game against the Anaheim Ducks because coach John Tortorella wants to play the same lineup that beat the San Jose Sharks 5-2 on Monday night.
''I didn't skate because of re-entry waivers...
I will bring whatever it is that is asked of me at this point. I think my game is pretty self-explanatory as far as what it is and where it comes from, and how it happens. Listen, we are all here because we want to play for the Rangers. I love this team. I want [...]
via Larry Brooks of the NY Post, The stage is set for Sean Avery’s return to the Rangers this afternoon via re-entry, but The Post has been told Islanders’ general manager Garth Snow has been coy concerning the possibility of claiming the winger on waivers.
It’s a long shot, given the combination of Avery’s stated desire of playing only for the Rangers and the enemies he...
… in all honesty there is no reason to change the lineup after the way they played against San Jose and even Sean Avery knows that. I would rather have a fresh Avery in against a smaller, faster Montreal team than against Anaheim on Thursday.

We all put our pants on one leg at a time right? Sure. But what about the rest of the process? For New York Ranger Sean Avery, it’s a very, very slow one, at least for the purposes of his “The Way I Dress” video. He’s the latest to appear in the series, which is featured on Mr. Porter’s Journal. Mr. Porter is a luxury-goods website and the men’s version of popular Net...
Per the request of John Tortorella Sean Avery <a title="Avery "excited"" href="http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=598600" target="_blank">is back in the Big Apple. It’s good to hear those two are friends again…. HA! I can only hope that the Rangers start tanking cuz if they do, the shizz will hit the fan. I still don’t see...
For all the hullaballoo about Sean Avery descending to the AHL, the Connecticut Whale didn't even get a single home game with him on the roster before he was brought back to the New York Rangers through re-entry waivers. Which has to be the most depressing thing to happen to Hartford since ... well, we simply don't have the time ...
This doesn't mean Sean Avery Hipster...

John Tortorella yesterday endorsed the Rangers' move to reinstate Sean Avery, the coach stating before last night's 5-2 Garden victory over the Sharks, "It's the right decision."
Of course after the game, Tortorella would not guarantee Avery a spot in the lineup Thursday against the Ducks even if...
