Sean Avery: Contract He Rejected Finally Revealed

Greg CaggianoSenior Writer IJuly 22, 2008

As reported by Larry Brooks of the New York Post, the contract offer that was made to Sean Avery by the New York Rangers has finally been made known.

On July 1st, Rangers' President and General Manager Glen Sather offered Avery a four year deal worth $12 million. It was this offer that he rejected only to join the Dallas Stars for a four year deal worth $15.5 million.

Sean Avery, who had openly stated how much he loved the Rangers and the city of New York and said that he "bled blue" apparently didn't love them that much as he took the next highest offer, that the Stars made, and signed there.

There has been much speculating among fans about the offer that Sather gave him, if any, and now it's officially known that Avery was in fact offered a deal, a very fair deal, that he rejected.

Fans had nothing to do but blame Glen Sather for Avery's departure since Sean can NEVER be in the wrong. Well this goes to show that Sather did all he could and Avery still chose to leave. Looks like your golden boy didn't quite bleed blue after all...
