joel is on ltir so even tho we are over cap with that it would work. dallas probably waives rissmiller as soon as they get him, I know we are getting the better package but we are also taking the avery headache off of their hands too
and I think that players on this team aren't upset that he's gone. He's a good hockey player when he wants to be and a distraction when, for whatever reason, he doesn't want to play hockey. He's not coming back to NY in a Rangers uniform.
For all the grief Roszival gets, its not easy to replace a defenseman that logs 20+ minutes everynight. Ill be the first to admit hes not playing well, but I dont think people realize how difficult it would be to replace him midseason.
Avery is a 16 million dollar 3rd liner thats never scored 20 goals in a season. I fair to see how he'd help this team other than in the entertainment department. Then again, it sure does seem that some of you would take excitement over winning.
I'd love to have him back. For whatever reason, it worked for him here. I don't know if it was because he had enough off ice stuff to keep him entertained, but whatever it was, it worked. Granted our record without him is probably better than it was with him, but I really liked him. If we could unload one of our undesireable contracts, I would consider it.
