Completely agree. Wouldn't give him a contract over 2yrs at 3mil apiece. Especially since Shanny will be gone very soon. I think Shanny really keeps his a$$ in line in the locker room. I see Avery as a Terrell Owens of hockey. He can be a cancer in the locker room if unchecked and not kept in line. Anything over 3mil would be insane to pay for him. He just doesn't put up the #'s to warrant it.
