The Rangers Attempt To Reacquire Stars' Sloppy Seconds

Sean Avery could be a Ranger again soon, according to the New York Post. The exiled Stars' defenseman, who pisses off everyone in the NHL, is currently reconditioning his head for a comeback.

Rangers GM will have to go through some major wheel-and-deal with Dallas Stars co-GM Les Jackson about how much money they'll absorb, when Avery will go on waivers, etc. If all of that paperwork gets finalized, then Avery could be back in the Rangers organization some time in March.


Since his infamous "sloppy seconds" comment in November, Avery has been receiving counseling under the NHL/NHLPA behavioral health program. The details of his treatment haven't been specified, but I imagine it's Avery being shuffled around from doctor to doctor trying to explain that there's actually nothing wrong with him, and the NHL is just antiquated and boring. Then they show him a picture of a black splotch on a white piece of paper, give him some Prozac, and then pump him full of positive reinforcement before he goes off shopping for chinchilla-lined pea coats.

Anyway, I hope it happens. He's good for business.
