Steve Zipay at Blue Notes has numerous quotes from Ranger players and head coach John Tortorella on the Rangers claiming Sean Avery...
"We feel, especially in the division, we need a little more jam on our team. Hopefully he can kick in a couple of goals. I haven’t coached Sean, I want to see what he’s all about. I’ve seen him play. When he’s concentrating on playing under a team concept, he’s an effective player. That’s what we’re looking for. He’s really tried to help himself and Glen believes in second chances. I think he’s done his homework here and we’ll see where it goes."
Chris Drury feels Avery will love Tortorella's system, while Henrik Lundqvist said Avery is a good player when he focuses on the game.

...nothing much here. Most players just giving the old "were happy to have him here" and "he's just one of 20 players on the team."
...the current players better not complain about the move, because if they were playing better Avery wouldn't have been brought in.
...personally, while I'm really excited to have Avery back, unless the Rangers can pick-up a scorer tomorrow, I don't know how much better this team is.
