Start the countdown on Avery’s return

The Rangers, as expected, placed Sean Avery on re-entry waivers at noon today.

That means any team in the NHL can claim him before noon tomorrow. Not likely.

Just to clear it up, if Avery is claimed, the Rangers are stuck with his cap hit, whereas if he is in Hartford the cap hit is off the books. So the Rangers are not doing this to clear cap space. Just the opposite.

It also means that at noon tomorrow, if unclaimed, Avery returns to the Rangers.

Get the parade route ready.

New poll over there ——>


Meantime, here’s a re-post of a comment made by our friend Izzy early this morning:

    Here comes Av-e-ry…
    Here comes Av-e-ry…
    Back from being waived,
    Torts and Sather and all his Rangers
    Pullin’ on his reins.
    Bells are ringin’, children singin’,
    All is merry and bright.
    So hang your banners and say your prayers,
    ‘Cause Av-er-y comes tonight.
