08:27 AM ET 11.01 | Well, this should certainly test the memories of both the Rangers and their fans. It was a bittersweet finale for the Sharks at Madison Square Garden on Monday night, as they dropped the last of their six-game road trip to the Rangers, 5-2. The Sharks go home with 10 points out of a possible 12. ... But their performance against the Rangers was their worst of the trip, and it was a game that they should have won fairly easily, if you believe the captain. "To be honest with you, they were probably the softest team we played against on this road trip," said Joe Thornton. "We played some good teams, and I think we probably should have beat these guys, to be honest with you."

LMFAO!

"... softest team we played..."

"... we should have beat those guys..."

Shut up Joe. You lost the game. How soft does that make you? You can talk like that when you win, not when you lose.

I'm sure Avery won't even make it to the Rangers, he is so valuable all those other teams will be sure to pick him up off of waivers.

Are you kidding me? You know Garth is going to snap him up at 25% salary. He's all about the waiver wire.

He has already made it through waivers once to send him down to the minors.

How do you lose to a team 5-2 and then procede to call them "soft"? I don't get it
