And those are just a few of the nuggets from today’s skate.
So let’s start right in:
Maybe so, but Tom Renney said Avery still isn’t day-to-day, and that his status will be re-assessed on Sunday, meaning the earliest Avery could return is next Tuesday against the Pens.
Meanwhile, I believe for the first time in his Rangers tenure, Avery was left borderline speechless, and it was it in response to a question about why he thinks the Rangers record is so much better with him in the lineup than without.
Avery tried to stammer out something: “I don’t know…that’s a good question. Maybe it’s just the way the moons align..It’s not my place…Some things happen for some reason…I don’t know.”
This went on for several minutes without much in the way of a coherent answer. So there you have it: probing journalism at its finest.
Not exactly a ringing endorsement.
