If Dale Weise cracked a top team's roster as a fourth line pest, Avery can find his way back into the NHL next year. He likely wouldn't take a two-way contract though, which hurts his chances, but if he wants to play hockey, there are a few teams who would take a shot with him.
Maybe he gets an invite to someone's training camp next season. But he was passed over by every team in the NHL this season on 3 separate occasions, once at half his price tag. So its kind of stupid to say thats a stupid statement.
Not saying he will be signed and if he is it will be for much much less than he is now.
I don't imagine either that he's going to have a lot of choices and it may be that the choices he does have he won't want.
I guess if they think he can revert to being a decent 3rd liner, maybe. But otherwise, I'm sure teams would be more interested in giving a young kid a try, or at least sign someone cheap without all the baggage that Avery has.
