Sean Avery: Who Will Take Him Now?

Svyato RovenchukSenior Writer IJanuary 11, 2009

Sean Avery is the NHL's hottest topic. After everything he has done, the question is who will sign him now?

He is one of those people that can help a franchise while at the same time bring to that franchise a lot of unwanted media attention. Avery cooks up scandals quicker than you can say suspended. He has done so many horrible things that he even has a rule named after him, this coming after he “screened” Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur.

Recently, he insulted Calgary Flames defenseman Dion Phaneuf over bad blood because Phaneuf is dating Avery’s ex-girlfriend, Elisha Cuthbert. Because of that, he is now forced to take anger management classes.

What kind of team would want a player like this?

Well, the New York Rangers aren't the same team without him so I would say that he has a good chance of going back there. Also, the Toronto Maple Leafs are looking for some grit and have displayed interest in him.

If he gets signed, will his new team be ready for the bad publicity that Avery brings with him? Will Avery learn to control himself?

I personally can’t wait for him to come back, because he is always entertaining fans no matter what the scandal is.

I don’t know about people out there, but I personally can’t wait for the return of Avery.

Where can I comment?
