The only time he signed a friendly deal was when he was coming off of a big injury and needed to prove himself.
That all may be true, or not, no one knows...still doesn't mean he should be traded because of what may or may not happen after the 2012/13 season.

Well...maybe not now but on July 1, I'm sure there will be some preliminary conversations about a new contract to see where their ballpark is. You can make a decision like Minnesota did very early on to move on for whatever reason if it suits your purposes and yet still get good value for the asset.

At least one star player on the #Sharks has expressed the desire to bring in Sean Avery of all players. Says veterans on team can handle him

Thank you! I'm glad someone else is against it.

Clearly Joe doesn't want to be Trollton anymore and wants Avery to take over the role.

I'm here. I commented on this tweet pages ago in this thread. LS posted this way late, it was posted this morning in this thread. I pointed out that I have no direct Sharks connections and did not plant the idea in any Sharks players heads. But I'll take credit if the trade happens since I mentioned it before this mystery tweet.

Tweet should have read:

Welcome to the Sharks board. It isn't just with Clowe, it's with any player that is slumping at any point in time.

Also, I would like to point out that this might be the first time I've ever agreed with you.

All these articles on Havlat being the key piece has me really worried.

He didn't play good when he was here what makes people think he'll turn it around after not playing for 4 months.

If DW actually signs Avery I predict he'll win the Conn Smythe.









Weirder things have happened. Anything is possible.

Havlat was arguably underperforming and still put up PTs...it'll be interesting to see him again.

I bet Jumbo said that thing about Avery. It'd be like him to troll the rumor mill.

You could probably run a franchise successfully with a 1a/1b center (eg Couture/Pavelski). You would need premium wings. Most full #1 centers are bigger (JT, Getzlaf, etc.) or faster (Datsyuk, Crosby) than Couture. Not a good idea to go 1a/?. My suspicion is that Couture stops at 1a and that is not meant as demeaning; it means a peaked out projection.

Stastny/Colorado and Roy/Buffalo are examples of what happens when you hang an overmatched guy out at the top. Stastny is closer to Couture, but Roy is definitely a cut below. It will be interesting to see how Florida fares in these last 50 days with Weiss at the top all alone. Buffalo gave Connolly to TO which helps TO to a 1a/1b situation. When Buffalo had Connolly, they were 1a/1b.

Couture doesn't play like a setup guy, could he ever transition to winger and see an upswing in production?
