From Arthur Staple at Newsday,
Sean Avery broke his three-week media blackout Monday, long enough to tell reporters after Rangers practice that he had broken off contract talks with the Rangers and that he seemed resigned to the fact that he’ll be playing elsewhere next season.
“I don’t think the value of what I’m worth has changed from the start of the season to right now,” Avery said. “I certainly love playing for the Rangers, no question about it. I’d say that window (of signing a long-term deal with the team) is probably not as open as it has been in the past.”
Avery, who is believed to be seeking a multi-year deal worth more than $2.5-million a season, said he’s been playing his best hockey “probably since I’ve been in the league” over the last 11 games, during which time he has seven goals and three assists.
