Would we look at Sean Avery?

Under any circumstances, would we look at Sean Avery? He's available on waivers right now, and apparently, Dallas is paying half of his salary, and the Rangers are paying one-quarter. So someone can claim him for almost nothing.

I realize he's had some major personality problems, and most people would probably say, "No way in hell," but many people said that about SK74 too. I wonder if he got a fresh start in Nashville whether he'd grow up like SK74 seems to have done.

Thoughts?

I think there is a large gap between the personality flaws of Avery and SK74, at any point in their respective careers. One that we're not about to embrace.

I wonder what Avery's opinion would be on the new unis....

As much fun as it would be to see a Tootoo-Smithson-Avery line, no.

Avery is terrible in the locker room from what I have been told. On top of that, his talents are merely complementary. We don't have the skill up front to exploit the small amount of talent he has. The negatives outweigh the positives. No thanks...

This kinda/sorta reminds me of the summer when some wild rumors about Chelios coming here after his release from det. I read a story that Trotz said, "you know you're not that popular in Nashville, don't you?", and Chelios replied, "I'm not that popular in alot of places".

Avery is poison. Even if three quarters of his salary are being paid for that's still to much.

If Avery offered to pay us to play here I would still say no

Ask Sather to trade Mats Zuccarello. You would get a great passer suited for a top six role.

I would sign him to play against the Ducks! Then I would release him, if possible.

Then the next team that plays the Ducks could sign him.

Wouldn't it be great if life really worked like that?

I'll look at him in contempt but that's as far as it goes.

If you made me choose between missing the playoffs without Avery or making the playoffs with him....it'd be close. I think i'd take no playoffs.

What a lovely thing to say.

Can the Preds hire him to host the visiting team?

To be fair, I didn't call him a cancer. Wouldn't want to insult the disease like that...
