Arbitration and Avery ...
It seems like a bad combination given Sean Avery's reaction to the Rangers' brief that describes him as a 'detriment' to his team:
"It's hard not to take something like that personally and not to be emotional about it," Avery told The Post yesterday. "I know this is part of the business, I know this is part of the process, but it's extremely disappointing to read something like that coming from Slats [GM Glen Sather] and not to be offended by it.And we haven't even gotten to the hearing yet.
"They talk about me taking, 'unnecessary penalties,' and make a lot of references about me that I don't want to go into but that I don't think are fair. I certainly don't think I was a detriment to the team."
