I dislike the guy with a passion ... but I'm willing to give him a chance. The fact that he will be wearing green and white makes the past irrelevant, at least for now. We all know he can play the game well; he simply has to keep his mouth to a minimum. I think with Morrow in command and Hull's guidance from above, Avery can be an excellent addition to this team. This could very much be like Dennis Rodman going to the Chicago Bulls - with Michael Jordan in command - and winning more championships. No doubt Rodman was a phenomenal basketball player, but he was a loose cannon just the same. In fact, there was a history of bad blood between Rodman and Scottie Pippen (Jordan's right-hand man and, arguably, the second best player in the league). MJ, with his extraordinary leadership skills, was probably the only guy in the league capable of keeping Rodman focused and in the game. The result, of course, was three more rings! Avery is no Rodman and Brendan is certainly no Michael, but they are both capable of filling similar roles. Furthermore, I cannot wait to see Avery and Otter on the same line ... what a force! I'm still looking for one more piece to be added ... we still need another scoring winger.

Avery is a hell of a player. Just ask all the people in the Blue seats at MSG. Despite all the constant BS baseball talk on NY radio,fans sneak in the " Man Sather is gonna pay for letting Avery walk" . Trust me your diehard fan base now has another Ranger I wish we had back...Zubov the other. Hats off to Hully!

Avery is the type of player that you hate when he is on the opposing team, but would lave to have him on your own. His mouth is one the tools that he uses to draw penalties that lead to power play goals. I hate him, but I wish we had him.

Philly would have been a nice fit with Avery. He can skate with Danny B and would have added some grit up front. Plus it would have been easier to pick up a Flyers jersey then an Islanders rag. Now it looks like I'll be scooping up the away Dallas.
