Scenario 1: Rangers put him on re-entry
1) He's claimed, Rangers take on his cap hit
2) Rangers finish season with leftover cap hit regardless of other moves
3) Did favor for GM X, improving team relations and got rid of a headache in Hartford

Scenario 2: Rangers don't put him on re-entry
1) Rangers finish season with leftover cap hit regardless of other moves

So end of the day, Rangers finish season with leftover cap hit regardless of other moves.

So.. why not? There is some small benefit as to helping out another team, especially one in the WC ala Calgary or San Jose.

Huh? I don't get this response, maybe you intended to quote someone else? I didn't really say anything about Avery's play or Hartford's success with or without him..
