We're not the most talented bunch, but we have a lot of depth. When we're healthy we can roll 4 lines consistently and all 4 can score. We have a young D, but they're smart and poised. Our team forechecks ferociously, clogs the passing lanes, blocks shots, takes body and in general, a frustration to play against. But can we win against the Flyers and Pens and Caps in the 7 game series?

With that in mind, anybody's willing to trade Avery at the deadline for picks? I think he's the most tradeable player, both in availability from our side and desirability in other teams' eyes. We definitely don't want to disrupt the chemistry on the 3 lines that have played with each other consistently, Drury has NMC, EC is EC, Prospal is a question mark, so this leaves Avery.
No one will take Avery.

The team that does assumes the full responsibility of his 3.85 Million Cap hit for next year.

Not sure I see that happening
