Update, 9:06 p.m.:
Will be talking Avery recall on WGBB 1240AM Long Island tonight at 10:50 p.m. You can also listen live by clicking here.
Update, 4:17 p.m.:
Greg Wyshynski at Puck Daddy had posted this about what would happen capwise if Avery was claimed by another team on re-entry waivers…
“If Avery were claimed on re-entry waivers, his salary would be paid by and count against three teams’ caps with this breakdown: Dallas 50 percent, Rangers 25 percent, New Team 25 percent.”
Update, 4:01 p.m.:
Larry Brooks confirms that Avery will be put on re-entry waivers tomorrow.
…Avery still has to clear re-entry waivers. Maybe Rangers had a deal with another team to get rid of him.
Update, 3:08 p.m.:
…got to say I am in complete shock right now. Now we have to hope no one will claim him.
…i guess Boomer is the new go to guy for Ranger rumors.
Update, 2:52 p.m.:
Andrew Gross reports that it’s not out of realm of possibility Rangers will announce another transaction later today.
…holy crap this really might be happening.
Update, 11:08 a.m.:
Video of Avery’s shootout winner from last night can be viewed by clicking here (1:46 mark).
…why would Boomer tweet this stuff if not true?
Update, 10:42 a.m.:
Avery has to clear re-entry waivers before he can report to the Rangers so no matter what he wouldn’t be back for tomorrow’s game against Sharks. Which could be why Deveaux was recalled and will most likely be sent back down after game if Avery clears. I’m getting excited!!!
…not sure how Boomer would know this but he is a big time Rangers fan with lots of connections. Will continue to monitor this.
…h/t to everyone who sent this to me.
