Avery, along with Wolski, Dubinsky, and possibly Zuccarello and Fedotenko will get looks on the Richards line.

Its impossible to speculate on his financial situation considering his possible lifestyle choices, and how we recently were informed that Tiki Barber is bankrupt at age 36.

That said, for such a mediocre player he gets far more attention, be it love or hate, than he deserves. I don't think a thread during the summer of 06 about whether 06-07 would be Jason Ward's last as a Ranger would have garnered as much angst. Avery was always overhyped by a segment of NYR fans because he is a loudmouth. Just like Christensen and Drury got ripped because they were reserved. Way of the world, I suppose.

For the record, Christensen outscored Avery last year in many fewer games, for half the cap hit.
