Would another NHL team touch Avery on waivers? Not after his antics in Dallas. Avery played in Hartford in 2008-09 when he came back from his suspension. He was on his best behavior trying to get back into the NHL with the Rangers.

Avery's roster spot with the Rangers is hanging by a thread. If he makes the team,Avery will be a very expensive 13th forward.
If preseason play has any bearing on who makes the team where then Avery should not be the 13th foward. He also seems to have some chemistry going to MZA.

Christensen has been on the verge of being out of the NHL for 3 years now, this season he is gonna get a taste of the AHL.
