DALLAS -- The Dallas Stars and New York Rangers would not comment on a report that the Rangers have had front-office talks about the possibility of bringing back suspended Stars forward Sean Avery. http://www.pittsburghlive.com/x/pitt.../s_610687.html
The New York Post said Friday that Rangers general manager Glen Sather was expected to speak to Stars co-GM Les Jackson about a timetable under which Dallas would place Avery -- who left the Rangers in the offseason to sign with the Stars -- on waivers.
If the Rangers were to reacquire Avery, they would be responsible for half of the rest of the his four-year, $15.5 million contract. For Avery to be eligible for the playoffs, the Rangers would have to pick him up before the March 4 trade deadline.
