Do you seriously expect BS to just step into 18+ minutes a night? Lets start with making the team out of camp.

Expendable, eh? who do you intend on replacing him in as far as FA defenseman? Orpik? Say bye to a slew of offense. Who else is leaving? Malik, Mara, and Strudwick? So 3/4 of our top four are staying and the bottom pairing+1 may change. That isn't exactly "retooling."

The truth of this whole matter, is that its the front 9 that are going to get a big makeover come next season. This is going to turn into Drury and Gomez' team very quickly. Does Avery fit into that, is the real question. Right now he gets bye because certain Rangers need the kick in the ass he can provide to get their game going. The next generation of Rangers may not need this sort of motivation.
