The reviews are in, and so far, Sean Avery‘s performance on Broadway (or at least East Rutherford) is drawing raves.

Says the Journal News’ Sam Weinman: “On a team where there are too many players intent on circing back toward their own defense, it was refreshing to see a player actually move forward.”

Linemate Brendan Shanahan: “I thought he played an intelligent game, a high energy game. You could hear the other teams chirping at him, but he’s a very skilled player. He’s excited about the game. He’s into it. He’s definitely a gamer.”

Rangers coach Tom Renney: “I thought he brought an intelligence to the game that we like. He skates well, he handles the puck well. He can shoot. He asserted himself. He’s a proactive player. I see Sean, with his ability to skate and read the game, as being a penalty-killer. I hope [the fans] respond well to him; I hope they respond well to our team.”

And from the Man of the Hour: “You always have to be careful coming into a team and trying to do too much. I’ll just try and play hard and fit in where I can. We played a pretty good team. We just have to keep on plugging away and give a lot of energy. I just have to play hard and try and do a little bit of everything.”

Best of all, Avery has yet to call anyone a “monkey.” We can only imagine the attention he’ll be getting once girlfriend Elisha Cuthbert makes her Garden debut.
