He's not going to the Oilers. After he sucker-punched Smid and half the team wanted him dead, they didn't want him. With a team full of impressionable young players, they really don't want him.

He's not going to the Leafs. After the Dion Phaneuf incident, along with Brian Burke's repeated disdain for rats, why would they want him?
Burke hates rats as long s they play on other teams. NHL players have short and faulty memories, they hate players but if Avery went to Edmonton all would be forgiven whether it should be or not.
