2007 NY Sports Awards-Avery(best deal of the year)

I saw this yesterday in the print edition of the Post.It's a Jay Greenburg column who will be filling in for Larry Brooks this week on the Rangers trip to western Canada.He gives his awards for the 2007 NY sports scene

Quote:
MANAGEMENT MOVIE OF THE YEAR
Glen Sather's February pickup of Sean Avery changed the Rangers personality, leading to their first playoff series victory since 1997.
Quote:
EXECUTIVE OF THE YEAR
Sather traded for Avery, signed free-agent biggies Chris Drury and Scott Gomez under a tight cap, and has made the Rangers matter again

If Slats pulled off a coup with the Avery deal.A journeyman roster player,a dime a dozen forward prospect and a hard to sign prospect which ended up being a third round pick for at least 1 season plus of Avery including hopefully two playoff appearances

Good recognition of the importance of the Avery trade/acquisition. But really what other move could you really look at in NY sports other than this one?

I'm a big fan of Pascal Dupuis (or Adam Hall, since Dupuis was hardly here) and a third for Alex Bourret. At worst, we cut our losses on a journeyman winger who was redundant on the team. At best, we've got ourselves a future top 6 forward!

Calling up Joba Chamberlain?

Seriously, I have a hard time thinking of anything better...let's look at it by team:

Mets - Luis Castillo was ok but he wasn't a gamebreaker or anything..look how the Mets finished.

Yankees - Jose Molina??? All the Yanks' best moves came from the minor leagues.

Giants - Maybe signing Kawika Mitchell.

Jets - Trading for Thomas Jones although the Jets' season cancels that out.

Knicks - Trading for Zach Randolph..again, look at the team.

Nets - Do they still exist?

Devils - uh..Karel Rachunek?

Isles - Bill Guerin may be the closest to anyone. So in the end, you have to go with Avery.

Also, thinking about it, the locals did not make alot of great moves this year....or even good ones.

Chamberlain is the only one that even comes close to difference Avery made.

Giants letting go Petitgout and allowing Dave Diehl to play Left Tackle. That worked out well.

Yankees signing Andy pettitte was a very good move also.

Agreed 100%. It was so nice not having to deal with his holding penalties this season.

Guerin has really been important to the isles. Definitely not as important as Avery to the Rangers, but he's really changed the culture on the Island. I bashed him a ton during the start of the season but he's picked it up soooo much lately. I can't tell you what a difference it is having a captain who sticks up for his teammates by fighting guys and setting the tone with his own play. I was questioning the signing at first, but clearly the team has to overpay for guys to come here, and Guerin's salary, while clearly a little high, may have been worth it.
