Sather inadvertently just cut out Avery's contract leverage with the rest of the league by making this public.

I still would not rule him out in New York though.

I think he could end up with the Rangers again anyway. It really depends on how much other teams offer him. We already know that the Wings and Kings won't offer him anything, neither will the Devils. So if the rest of the teams in the league don't think he is worth as much as he thinks he is than he'll probably end up signing with the Rangers since he apparently likes it here so much.

I can't believe we have 5 people who want him to go to the Islanders. We would still end up playing them the same amount of times, I just want him the hell out of the division if not out of the conference so we can just forget about him.

This sounds like the perfect opportunity for him to pursue his fashion career and get the heck out of hockey...

I would just like to see him go to the Isles so I can watch all my Ranger fan friends talk about how much they hated him and I can watch all my Isles fan friends (who complain about him as much as we do) suddenly treat him as God's gift.

Other than that, I'd wish him to go to the European leagues.

Couldn't agree more with you guys. Get him the hell away from the Atlantic, the Eastern Conference, and even the NHL if possible.

I think a desperate team will pick him up.. Isles maybe, who have been the 'big' rumor of signing him.. Or any other team that is seriously criticized for lacking a 'pest', but i really couldn't name a team right now besides the Isles.

We already have one in Clarkson, who has the potential to be better offensively than Avery, and maybe even more CLEANER. I would laugh if we somehow picked up Avery, but thats 99.99% NOT going to happen since Brodeur would probably go on strike.. and nobody would want him here.. we are not a desperate team

I'd like to see him wind up in Columbus, or Edmonton, or Buffalo, or Carolina. Somewhere decidedly small-market. For a Sean Avery, having to play in Edmonton is a fate worse than not playing at all.

I wish that were the case. This is nothing more than the Rags tiering their priorities. He'll end up back in NY.

No matter where he plays he'll be hurt 20+ games most seasons so there's a good chance we wouldn't face him anyway.

SHA NA NA NAAAA, SHA NA NA NAAAA, HEY HEY HEY GOOOOD BYE! That's one turd you wish you could flush more than once!

Now on a side note, do you guys think Lou will put the shoe on the other foot and take a few guys off the Rags roster?

What i'm thinking is that, BOTH Roszival and Mara(NJ Native) are considered top 4 d-men who are big and mobile with big shots and can play the point on a PP. There lack of physical play and d zone coverage issues can be fixed by Larry and seeing as they're being cast off by the Rags (Roszival for sure) pay back 7 times a year with the ability to still be close to home sounds good to me!

Even though i hate the Rags, it's my brothers team, i truely wouldn't mind both of those guys and they could be considered your typical Lou, second tier, good value top 4 d-men ufa signings.

Thoughts?

DEVILS FAN FOR LIFE, DEATH TO LEAF....... AND RAGS NATION!

Swiping Rangers re-treads didn't work out so hot last year. I mean, yeah, we got Weekes but we didn't do much with him. And Rachunek was obviously a bust. Personally, I don't think I'd be adverse to Mara, but I'm not a fan of Roszival.
