Avery Has a Different Mentality Going Into Camp This Season

Andrew Gross at Ranger Rants was able to sit down with Sean Avery after the third day of informal practices and the pesky winger had this to say about bouncing back from a disappointing season...

“I feel real good,” Avery said. “I certainly have a different mentality going into camp this year than last year. It was a disappointing season for the team and from a personal standpoint. It was not a good year. It’s just focus in a different way, just definitely a different mentality as far as a personal standpoint.”

...not sure why he came into camp last year with a bad mindset, maybe confused about role on the team with Torts. But this is great to hear as a rejuvenated Avery means bad news for the rest of the league. And good news for Ranger fans.

Jesse Spector at the Blueshirts Blog has more from Avery here.

He's a key, no doubt. I think he was definitely unsure of his role last year, especially after Torts comments on TSN.

Nobody cares about Sean Avery anymore. Less and less players are falling into his trap every season. I love how he once said, "David Clarkson tries to play at my level, even though he knows he can't, he's really not an effective player", and then Clarkson followed it up with a 17 goal season the next year, more than Avery has ever scored in a single season. Not that I'm a Devils fan.

REGARDLESS OF MY ERROR. DAVID CLARKSON IS BETTER. AT LEAST I CAN ADMIT MISTAKE. What was the other mistake, jackass?
