Steve Zipay at Newsday reports that it is believed the Rangers eventually will place Sean Avery on re-entry waivers, perhaps closer to the Feb. 27 trade deadline.

...with everything going on down in Hartford, not so sure teams would be interested in claiming him anymore. I do hope it works out for Avery.

One team that was interested in Avery, according to the Calgary Sun, was the Florida Panthers, who were trying to make a deal for "The Grate One" before he was placed on waivers.

However, the Panthers are no longer interested after signing John Madden to address grinder issues.
