From Black to Blue

Sean Avery is once again a Blueshirt. The New York Rangers have claimed the controversial winger on re-entry waivers from the Dallas Stars.

Click here for full details from TSN.

Fantasy Outlook: The hockey world knew that this transaction was going to take place. It was just a matter of time before it happened. Sean Avery will bring something unique to the Rangers.
That being said, Avery will continue to be a top six winger and a super-pest. He will be a contributor to the Rangers by creating more room for the more talented players if he can stay out of the penalty box or Tortorella's doghouse.

I think that Avery's value has dipped and I caution owners to beware when they are contemplating the keeper value of him. IF he can contribute, and IF he stays away from controversy then he will remain a keeper because of his points and penalty minutes.

  1. There was an interesting clip of Tortorella coaching Avery. Don't forget that when Tortorella was a TSN hockey analyst he was extremely critical of Avery. Claiming he had no business being in the NHL. More recently..Just prior to the Rangers picking Avery off the waiver wire Tortorella was asked should the Rangers claim him he said "No, and I dont even want to talk about Avery."

    Will the Rangers make a push with Avery, Antropov and Morris.
