One headache for another

To Dallas: Blake
To Toronto: Avery

Dallas gets rid of their PR nightmare....gets a similar contract...maybe a change of scenery will help Blake.

Toronto(Burke) gets rid of their scapgoat....gets a similar contract...and gets a player that is aggressive.....which Burke likes.

Comments?

Toronto easily passes on this. Blake only sucks. Avery sucks and is an idiot.

That's ok, we don't universally reject it any more than we did the last one.

Avery > Blake, baggage and all.

Dont know about that. Avery has never touched 40 points. Blake has 5 times. In a row.

And I'm sure the many Leafs fans are just thrilled to have him on the team. Not saying they'd be happier with Avery, but Blake's not exactly the most popular player in Toronto right now.

I'll keep Blake in this situation.

At least Fletch and Toskala don't rip on Blake like Avery gets it.

Blake with 3 more points tonight - 1 G, 2 A. Meanwhile, Sean Avery sat through a 3 hour disciplinary hearing with the commisioner and his future seems to be in serious doubt.

Blake isn't worth what he's getting paid, but thinking Avery = Blake right now is moronic...to get any GM to take him off their hands, Hull/Jackson will have to include a high level prospect /draft pick as well as taking another team's salary dump.

At least Blake is able to suit up and play without being a constant travesty to the game.

No thanks. Sportscentre would turn into an endless loop of "Brian Burke said this! Then Sean Avery did this! Then Ron Wilson said this!"
