Simple question.

He'd make a little over 1.9 million if you picked him up off re-entry.

Gillis wouldn't even let him play on our AHL team for free.

Nope, not for free. He is a detriment to any team, save for maybe New York.

Plus Lappy absolutely HATES him. They couldn't be on the same team.

It's not really smart for a team like the leafs and where their at to take on a player like that.

I don't know anyone in their right mind who would take Avery. Look at what he did to the Stars, and look at them now. I could see the Rags taking him back since he's like Jesus there anyway.

Sean Avery the player would fill a definite need on the Penguins but Sean Avery the personality doesn't. The locker room has been shaky this year from the reports I've heard.

See, I like Avery as a player... but wouldn't want to risk whatever good Florida has going in the locker room right now.

Gillis' 3 characteristics are character,integrity,and intelligence. Don't know if Avery has any of those.

The way we're playing right now i would say sure.I hate the little puke but maybe he's what the Habs need.A little crap in the dressing room might wake this team up.

The Bruins wouldn't, granted he could be the shake up they need right about now.

anyone who votes yes, please say why your team (insert team name) will pick him up. No's are obvious ones.

Burke has said No.
Nonis has said he probably isn't the right fit for the team.

But Burke has also met with Sean Avery recently.

I voted no.

At that price, assuming he's even a tad the wiser, hell, yes, in a heartbeat.

I'd consider it heavily, granted he doesn't become a locker room ****bag, him in black and orange could be another reason why most of the league hates my team!

Only if they want to end their sellout streak and piss off the paying customers.

It would be suicide on and off the ice.
