Update, 4 p.m.: Breathe easy, Rangers fans. Andrew Hutchinson has cleared waivers, and is headed to Hartford.
You know the regular season must be right around the corner because the Rangers came out with their media guide today. That alone today wouldn’t be much of a big deal, but it came with this curious photo of Sean Avery, with the Rangers left wing looking not unlike he should be the newest member of Weezer (Apologies for the grainy cell phone picture).
Needless to say, if you expected the rest of the Rangers to leave the picture alone, you’d be wrong. A handful were seen flipping through the book to the incriminating photo, with Rangers trainer Jim Ramsay even going so far to color in the glasses on Avery’s picture on the adjacent page.
Of course, given Avery’s track record of leading ladies, maybe he’s actually on to something.
As for real news…
