Here is the Brooks story

Avery would carry a cap hit of approximately $1.025 million for a team claiming him. If he clears, it's likely that the Rangers would give him permission to attempt strike a deal to play the remainder of the season in the KHL rather than re-assign him to the AHL Whale.

GM Glen Sather, The Post has learned, had given Avery's agent, Pat Morris, permission to talk to NHL general managers during the Dec. 19-27 holiday roster freeze to try and find a landing spot for the winger, who is anathema to Rangers' head coach John Tortorella.
