I’ve touched upon the fact that Sean Avery has been skating regularly with the Rangers, but it doesn’t sound like a return this week is likely. Tom Renney said the left wing still has some pain in his wrist, hasn’t really been subjected to contact, and needs to build up strength before he can come back without fear of injuring it again.
Of course, Renney said all that and then also acknowledged that Avery would make the trip to Minnesota and Colorado for a number of reasons, one being that he could be day-to-day soon (I’m not sure how any of this works, but something tells me that if “you’re days away from being day-to-day,” then you’re day-to-day now. I don’t know. It’s all very confusing and I’m not very smart.
