Now You See the Avery Banner, Now You Don’t (Updated)

Update, 10:06 a.m.:
Here’s video of the “We Want Avery” chant (via Puck Daddy)…

…Sam sounds less than excited about the chant.

Original Post:
Last night I tweeted the below picture of a Sean Avery themed banner that was hanging in MSG during the pre-game ceremonies. The sign, which read 16 Avery: Send Torts to the Whale, was the talk of the early portion of the night…

However, at some point during the first period, Rangers management must have come over and taken the sign down…

Katie Strang at ESPN NY reports a Rangers season-ticket holder named Don created the banner because he was upset that Avery’s checking-line left wing spot has been taken by Kris Newbury.

Don said he plans to come up with more banners in the future, possibly with the words, “AVERY IS GONNA HAUNT THEM FOREVER.”

During the third period chants of “We Want Avery” rang down from the crowd.

Here’s Hank after last night’s game on Avery…

“We have players that can bring spark here for this group,” Henrik Lundqvist said after the Rangers were drubbed, 4-2, in their home opener by Toronto. “Obviously, Aves he is one of a kind when it comes to playing the game the way he plays it, and he brings a lot to the table. He’s a great player obviously, but right now the management thinks this is the best team possible and we’re just gonna go with that.”

…first off epic fail by the Rangers. Apparently there’s no freedom of speech in the new MSG.

…as far as the Rangers version of the ‘Curse of the Bambino’, that might be a bit much, but this team is missing the energy that Avery brought every night. Sure he didn’t score much last year but when he had his motor running I really felt the team and the MSG crowd fed off of him. Now does that mean the Rangers win last night with him in the line-up probably not, but you can be assured that Avery would have thrown a big hit or drawn a key power play to insert energy into what was a lackadaisical effort by the Blueshirts.
