Rangers To Waive Sean Avery

Larry Brooks of the NYPost tweeted and TSN is reporting that the New York Rangers will put Sean Avery on waivers at noon today.  There is some shock to this as Christensen did little if anything to "win" the final roster spot, but the fact that Avery is off the team should not be all that shocking.  Avery had the bigger cap hit and issues with the coaching staff trusting him not to take bad penalties, so they made the move to waive him.  If he is goes unclaimed Avery can be sent to the CT Whale.  Sad that Christensen ends up the beneficiary in this. More later.
