If you're trading for Avery, you are going to make the Rangers call him up first and not risk losing assets and not even get the player.

Hence, there's really no reason to trade for him since you can just claim him on re-entry..
Assets? The Rangers aren't interested in assets for Avery. Send your bad contracts(AHL players on NHL contracts) to the Rangers. Calgary has players with NHL contracts in the AHL. The Flames have $2.3M in cap space. Let them take the risk.

Sources have told The Post general manager Glen Sather rejected that request, instead offering to trade Avery in a minor-league deal under which the Rangers would take back additional dollars but the responsibility for placing Avery on re-entry would then pass to the acquiring club that would then bear the burden of carrying dead salary-cap space upon a claim.
