Which is more money per season, which is the heart of the point.

Vancouver would easily pay what he's asking for, and he could definately be great on the 3rd line with Kesler and Burrows. We could finally get rid of Cowan and Rypien, as well as Isbister and Pyatt. As Avery would take basically all their roles into 1 guy.

The Kesler/Burrows line is already one of the top 3 checking lines in the NHL. Add Avery to that and it's basically unstoppable.

And best of all, we have the cap space to afford whatever he wants.
lol, greatest city in North America sans argument. Pffft.

Hey I love Montreal. Don't get me wrong. Hell, I have half of my extended family living there, and I was born there.

But Vancouver is a MUCH more beautiful city hands down. From the Pacific Ocean lining the province, to the mammoth mountains that line the other side of the province. For the past 10 years Vancouver has been rated between the #1/#2 spot for best place in the world to live. Back and fourth between Vancouver and Zurich, I'll take that over Montreal's dramtic climate changes any day of the week.

The only thing that Montreal has superior to Vancouver is of course fine eatery, and night life. And obviously, hockey is a bigger market there. But for a city that has never won a Stanley Cup, and has had 4 consecutive yearly sellouts (games) I'd say that's pretty respectable.

If he gets that contract, he'll end up being bought out tucker style.

How is it that a checking line becomes unstoppable?
Maybe unpenetrable was the word you were looking for?

Useful little player, but a distraction to say the least. Avery is just such an attention ***** that an offer by Columbus, say or some such remote NHL outpost cannot be taken seriously by his camp.

When Avery was hurt this year, he went and sat with the MSG denizens of the "blue seats", garnering all kinds of attention and adoration from Ranger fans-for all the wrong reasons.

Problem is, when he disappears, which is often, he is not worth the locker room black hole that he is. Without strong leaders, the contrary nature of his personality is just too damn high maintenance.

The guy took an internship at Vogue and his NHL picture has him in a Mohawk and some German tourist square glasses for *** sakes!. The guy has a high need to be in a high profile city, and for all his speed and legendary agitation, a long term deal is not worth the trouble.

How would like to be an NHL team where every road trip, one third line winger becomes public enemy number one, garnering all kinds of negative attention. At least Ken Linseman could score...

Don't forget the constant rain, the drug needles lining the streets and the serial killers roaming the city. Vancouver rocks!

I live 10 min. from NYC but I've been to Montreal about 10 times, Toronto, Edmonton, Calgary, and Vancouver 3 times.

Vancouver hands down beats the crap out of Montreal as a city. Nothing against Montreal, Vancouver is just that beautiful. I would even rate Vancouver ahead of NYC. I've been to A LOT of places all over the world, I would say Vancouver is top 3 place in the entire world. A lot of people rate Sydney #1 but I have never been there.

I would live in Vancouver if I could but my career doesn't allow it. I'm a Futures trader and we work with Eastern time. No way do I want to be trading at 6:30am.

Montreal is a city that's dirtier with a lot more hobo's on the street. I can't walk without constantly being asked for money. Vancouver does have its share of druggies but Vancouver does the right thing. They confine them to one or two blocks. In the end, I still love both cities. I try to go to Montreal at least once a year. Vancouver is tougher since I can't drive and have to take a 6 hour flight.

first of all, I got GM offers from 3 NHL teams straight out of Law school, but I decided to pursue my acting career instead

and Avery had 11 more points in 16 less games. Ott averages about .25 PPG over his career compared to Avery's .44. so yeah, I'd pay $2M for that.
