Larry Brooks of the NYPost tweeted and TSN is reporting that the New York Rangers will put Sean Avery on waivers at noon today. There is some shock to this as Christensen did little if anything to "win" the final roster spot, but the fact that Avery is off the team should not be all that shocking. Avery had the bigger cap hit and issues with the coaching staff trusting...
Over the summer there was much speculation concerning the
subject of who would be the left wing to pair with Brad Richards and Marian
Gaborik on the top line for the New York Rangers. My position throughout was that Wojtek Wolski
would get the first chance to prove he could utilize his talent playing with
those two elite players. Reports from
camp have said there is...
This is one you have to chalk up to the Rangers hectic travel schedule. Clearly the team was gassed to start the game, as they were unable to generate any sort of foot speed, and looked lethargic out there to a man. As the game wore on, the Rangers seemed to get their energy levels up to respectable levels, and were able to pull of a win, albeit an unimpressive win considering...
(Editor’s note: Is it really 20 years since this? October 4, 1991: Mark Messier, traded to NY Rangers by Edmonton with future considerations (Jeff Beukeboom for David Shaw, November 12, 1991) for Bernie Nicholls, Steven Rice and Louie DeBrusk and a big, giant bag of cash, October 4, 1991.)
The Rangers wrapped up their 2011 preseason campaign with an ugly 8-4...
Regarding Sean Avery …
I don’t think he was/is going to play much at all this season if he stayed/stays. Mike Rupp, for one, completely takes away his position in the lineup, and is a much, much better and more versatile player. Mats Zuccarello had a great camp. You could argue Avery over Erik Christensen, but I don’t think the Crusher is going to be seeing much ice time...
It’s Sunday, so it’s time for today’s link dump.
Steve Zipay at Newsday thinks that the Rangers youth movement is on hold because the Rangers cut Carl Hagelin and Ryan Bourque yesterday. I am inclined to disagree here. There is a ton of youth on the team already, and you don’t just put youth on the team just to do it. The Rangers are adding Mats Zuccarello full time...

The New York Rangers placed controversial left wing Sean Avery on waivers Tuesday.
Should he clear waivers, the Rangers could send him to the Connecticut Whale of the American Hockey League. TSN reported that his agent, Pat Morris, noted that playing in Europe is among Avery's other options.
Avery is entering the final year of a $4 million contract.
Avery often makes more...
Sean Avery appears to have lost out on the final spot on the New York Rangers' roster. The noted agitator is likely headed to the waiver wire after being beaten out by fellow forward Erik Christensen. Avery could end up on another NHL team if claimed off waivers by Wednesday, on the Rangers' AHL affiliate in Connecticut, or loaned to a team in Europe.
