Would you be willing to trade Sean Avery?

Yes. Avery is at best a 3rd/4th. Sure he has decent skills, but sometimes I feel he has an ego problem when he has the puck. Almost like he thinks he can beat anybody. Confidence is a good thing for a skilled player, but I don't think Sean is in that category. He plays his role well at times, but dissapears when he can't play "his" game. Problem is, he is only effective if he is off his leash, which ends up hurting the team more often than not. Personally I think he can be replaced easily and I wouldn't mind using him as trade bait for something this team really needs... defense!!
Don't get me wrong... I love Avery's energy and grit, but it seems to hurt the team often. Just my opinion. Maybe I'm still a little upset about him picking a fight while Corvo was on that breakaway.
Anyway, good luck finding a team that is willing to take the headaches that come with the Avery package.
