Maybe the old media-shy Glen Sather of say, a week ago, would have stood silent on the Sean Avery contract issue. Not today.
This statement was just released from the boss:
“Sean is an important part of our team. His focus and ours right now is finishing as high as we can in the standings and then going as far as we can in the playoffs. We value his contribution and at the appropriate time we’ll continue discussions with his agent.”
