Also if we are going to call Avery out for lacluster play in a playoff series how bout his series against the Devils? Do the Rangers beat the Devils without Avery? Probably not..Is that an indictment on the entire TEAM? It probably is...eitherway Avery has value to the Rangers or to whoever he signs with....
we can call guys overpaid but it only takes one owner to write the check.

i like most of what you say SoS but i gotta disagree with this...

the rangers were a better team flat-out than the devils in this years' series. i think they would have won with or without avery. in addition to avery, jagr wasn't being stopped, neither was gomez, nor dubinsky. even drury...and hell, even nigel dawes...were getting chances throughout.
