"We want Avery" chants and a large banner saying "Send Torts to the Whale!"

Fan favorite, indeed.

He's still loved here. Or at least that's my perception. He's also especially loved by some of the womens. I don't quite get that one.

How could anyone want him on there team... He is a disgrace to hockey. Period. Saying he is a agitator is giving him too much credit the word I would rather use is pest. His on ice actions are a embarrasement to hockey and his off ice actions are an embarrasement to human beings.

Wow Avery really Wow the fans in NY must be confusing him with some other player because the Avery I know is a clown and a disgrace to the game and if he were wearing a winged wheel I would go as far as to say I would simply denounce the organization in spite of all reason and logic as they have done great things here in Det. but I would not be able to be proud of an organization that sports Avery in the lineup Thumbs up to the Rangers organization for realizing this fact.

I don't get that one either, and I'm a womens. Not just any womens, but one who loves Mac, Probie, and others known for having less-than-stellar periods in their off-ice lives as well as Sammy, Koko, and others who other womens generally do not find sexy.

Avery? I don't get the womens on that one.

Money on the board:  Current total: 0

$1 for a goal by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster.  An additional $5 for a series-clinching goal scored by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster. $5 if the other team fails to score against a current Wing goalie after whom I have named a hamster.

Hamsters I have had:  (current Wings highlighted)

Yeah that was before everyone knew what a $#!T head he was...I somehow forgot about him being signed here...must be one of those inconvenient truths I here so much about...my point still stands as the wings shown enough common sense to pedal him off elsewhere

EDIT: Note I used the word wearing meaning present tense.

I liked him when he was here. He's a **** now, but when he was here he was more of a grinder/agitator than a goon.

As usual... wondering what he's done to people to generate the hate.

Averages a point 47% of the time and 2.67PIM per game. He's someone MOST teams could use.

Are all hockey fans conservatives or something? Did he beat on your favorite player? Are you all fans of Phaneuf? What's wrong, "sloppy seconds" too risque? He's af****** hockey player.

I was thinking this the whole time. I was wondering if he had some Matt Cooke on ice incidences that I didn't know about.

If people think that the stuff he says is too dirty, or mean, then they would faint if they heard their favorite player in game.

I agree with you on Sammy but actually I can see Koko being successful in a typical bar even if he weren't a hockey player. Seems handsome enough. BTW, thanks for embracing the term 'womens.'

While I can see why people would be put off by some of his more... coarse behaviors, he does have some redeeming moments which makes me think he might not be as bad as everyone thinks. I really do think that if he ever came back to Hockeytown, he would be a favorite after about 4 games. The worst thing that would come out of it would be another scapegoat to take some of the heat off of Hudler. I think it would be very interesting to see him on a line with Abby and Helm. If only one of them was a right winger. Oh well. :unsure:

(Disclaimer: I do not think Avery will return as a wing.)

I honestly think if he wasn't traded from Detroit, he would've been a bit more mature with guys like Yzerman and Shanahan still around at the time.

I liked him with the Wings, but it didn't sway me one way or another when he got traded.

Don't get me wrong, he did plenty of good things to warrant a trade to Los Angeles at the time, he's had pockets of success here/there, but he's obviously got other drama - whether he wants to avoid it or likes it, he carries other baggage that has been a distraction. It might not matter to some, but that is a factor to me, and a lot of that drama shouldn't be that hard to avoid.
