SEAN Avery (above) is a free agent in more ways than one. The former New York Ranger showed up at Bungalow 8 New Year's Eve on the arm of – his brother. A spy at the club said that Avery and his girlfriend of several months, Kelly Klein, have split – "They're no longer together." Avery was dumped by the Dallas Stars last month after he made a nasty comment about his ex, Elisha Cuthbert. He tried to make up for lost time at Bungalow 8, flirting with women and hanging with former teammates Scott Gomez, Chris Drury, Nigel Dawes and Marcus Nasland.
This makes me so happy. At first I thought he was in town for the shows, but fashion week doesn't start until February 13(which is a Friday BTW). So maybe meeting with old friends and former teammates can be a sign for things to come? I'm sure Bettman would pitch a fit if Dallas traded Avery to the Rangers. Oh well. You can't keep the guy from playing and face it, Avery makes life a little more interesting in the NHL. Plus the B's play the Rangers three more times after the All-Star Sham – so who wouldn't want to see that?
My prediction, Avery is back in a Rangers uniform by the end of fashion week.
