Totally different situation. Dallas was so desperate to get rid of Avery that they were willing to put up with carrying his cap hit and paying half of his salary for the remaining 3 and a half years of his contract.

If the Rangers had their way they would probably be content with letting Avery play in the AHL, unlike the Stars who wanted Avery as far away from their team and prospects as possible. But Slats has always liked Avery and is trying to help him find a NHL team. He won't, however, help Sean find a new team if it means the Rangers have to carry dead cap space.
