The Leafs have a talent for signing overpriced and overrated players so I won't be surprised if they signed Avery.
Ron Wilson won't have Avery on this team, and last time I checked Fletcher is unloading dead weight not adding it. JFJ really screwed the pooch for the Leafs, the Blake contract, NMC and NTC coupled with trading the best goalie prospect besides Carey Price for Rayrcroft.
Avery is also looking 4 year 16 million dollar contract, for a guy who hasn't cracked 20 goals. No players tank nation this year, Tavares next year
This year's UFA crop blows, but yet a lot of GMs will blow money on lengthy and expensive contracts. If Corey Stillman is healthy, I think he'd be a good option up front for a decent contract. Potential 60-70 point player with 2 cups on 2 different teams.
BERTUZZI ON WAIVERS
Who do you guys think will pick him up? He is a great player. Maybe he likes SoCal enough to sign with the Kings
Atlanta, Columbus? The LA Kings don't need him, keep growing that young talent. He'll probably catch around 2 mil, which some team will defiently take a chance on. Bertuzzi isn't the same player that dominated back in Vancouver, man I really hope Burke doesn't come to Toronto.
