avery was scratched last night for "disciplinary reasons" which is reportedly due to him spitting on his coach after refusing to play.

here is the amplifying info:

http://deadspin.com/5876106/did-sean-avery-spit-on- his-minor-league-hockey-...

Sean Avery, now playing for the Connecticut Whale in the AHL, was a healthy scratch last night for what the Rangers are calling "disciplinary reasons." It remains unclear, however, what required the discipline. The rumor spreading on Twitter is that he was benched for spitting on his coach.

Further seasoning the story is the news that at least two teams would claim Avery were he re-called by the Rangers. One team, apparently has gone so far as to ask the Rangers to do just that, while another quietly waits in the wings. The Rangers, however, would prefer to trade Avery because a claim would require them to pay half his salary and involve a salary cap hit they would like to avoid.

So, with the prospect of getting back to the NHL stalled for what appears to be trade deadline posturing, Avery toils away in Connecticut minor league hockey. He is most likely aggravated and feeling helpless, with a very defined skill set: pissing people off. Up until this point, things have generally worked out for Avery when he pisses people off, so it is entirely possible this was an orchestrated maneuver, designed to force New York's hand. Or, he could just be a crazy person incapable of controlling himself in the high stakes atmosphere of Connecticut minor league hockey.

His Coach and/or a Teammate should have kicked his punk ass the little piece of shit.

the fact that there are two teams waiting for him, proves this league needs to banish the instigator penalty. they want it to run his shit disturbance and know really, he won't have to answer the bell.

Yeah, you would think EVEN Avery wouldn't stoop this low, unless he really likes playing in New York that badly.

Right.... this is probably just an internet rumor. I'm no big Avery supporter by any means but I just can't see this being true at all.

If I were him I'd be pissed off to, with rumores of teams asking the Rangers to put him on waivers and them refusing to. He has to play in the minors and knows that NHL teams want him. I'd be angry if that happened to me. Shit, I hope one of those teams is the Flyers.

Agreed. But it's a two way street. The Rangers organization "allowed" him to get back in the NHL back in 08. Granted the Rangers benefited from him, they still took him when no-one else would. They are still paying for half of that stupid contract that Dallas signed him for. So why would they let another team claim him for free and not get anybody back for it except a cap hit???? Oh well. I am sure when the time is right Glenn will figure something out for him. He has to suck it up. Or go play in Siberia.

It's fucking crazy that this guy is not in the NHL. The culture of league today is such that a guy like Avery can be extremely effective, way moreso than a real enforcer. The league today is made for this guy so it's surprising that he's not up there.

Snot they would not be "claiming him for free" any team that claims a player off reentry waivers would be on the hook for the other half of Avery's salary and the Rangers the other half.
