Larry Brooks of the New York Post tweeted that he has confirmed the New York Rangers will place forward Sean Avery on re-entry waivers Monday. Should he clear he would be able to play on Thursday against Anaheim. Most don't seem to think that Avery is going to get claimed by another team on re-entry.
This feels like a move to appease the fan base for a slow start and not one that has a legitimate possibility of changing the team. Should be interesting to watch Tortorella and Avery over the next couple of weeks as this seems like a move that went above Tororella's head.
