Taylor was the one that brought him in the first place...

Dean had no choice but to resign Avery to avoid arbitration. You might even want to commend DL for getting some value for Avery at the very least...

"Sometimes players just take a little time to mature. Sean's still young, hopefully he'll continue to do so. He's going to a big stage now. If he continues [to mature], he'll do just fine. From the summer, when I first got there, there wasn't much of a market for Sean Avery. He's made progress." Kings GM Dean Lombardi

That's called asset management folks.
