Avery has played on the top 2 lines the past two years? that makes him a top 6 forward...on playoff teams....right? how much money are you willing to spend on averys replacement?
btw I don't think avery is worth $4M and Avery hasn't asked that from the rangers from EVERYTHING that's been reported...unless we are talking about what avery is going to sign for with another team...then yeah that's probably $4M bucks year..
it's weird because sather probably could've signed avery for $2.25M last offseason.....why isn't that EVER brought up in this discussion...
can callahan get through a season without getting sent to the minors before we start comparing him to sean avery..also callahan hasn't played on the top 2 lines...why compare him to avery?
orr fights...and brings nothing else..
dubinsky can't fight...(at least he shouldn't) and does not play the same game as sean avery...he plays a good game and took a huge step forward last season but i wouldn't compare the two players....does dubinsky get in people faces like avery? not really..
how many times have you seen "this sweedish guy" play? we want to replace avery with a guy a 25 year old who nobody could name a month ago....what if this "sweedish guy" shows he can't make it in the NHL?
it's like it's the "in" thing to knock what avery brings...i just don't get it...
