Found October 30, 2011 on Blue Seat Blogs:
According to Larry Brooks via Twitter (his source was Bommer Esiason and Nick Kypreos), Sean Avery will be placed on re-entry waivers tomorrow. Whether another team is interested in acquiring him is uncertain, but chances are Sather is giving the fans (well half of them anyway according to our polls) what they want. For the other half of this fan base, all we can hope for now is that Torts and Sean can somehow get on the same page. Maybe Richards can be a middleman if issues arise? Who knows. Sean has some skill no doubt, but his coach-ability has been questioned by every NHL coach he has ever played for. If this rumor is true, and he does end up back the team, hopefully the relationship between Sean and Torts is somehow salvageable. I mean you would have to assume Torts gave the okay to Glen to right? Either way, things are about to get interesting…

As expected, Sean Avery has cleared re-entry waivers, and will be able to join the Rangers during their practice tomorrow.

The likely candidates to come out of the lineup are Erik Christensen, Wojtek Wolski, and recent call up...

Tough Times Force Rangers To Call Back Avery

This is a little sad. Looks as though Sean Avery will be put through reentry waivers today, which would allow him to play in the Rangers Thursday night affair when they host the Anaheim Ducks.
