2008_12_avery2.jpgFormer NY Rangers player Sean Avery met with NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman today to discuss further fallout of his remarks disparaging fellow hockey players and ex-girlfriends. Slapshots says it seems that the Dallas Stars, which signed him after the Rangers decided to let him go, are looking to get rid of him and "dispose of his four-year, $15.5 million contract." Last night, Avery released an apology to The Sporting News--"I would like to sincerely apologize for my off-color remarks to the press yesterday from Calgary. I should not have made those comments and I recognize that they were inappropriate. It was a bad attempt to build excitement for the game, but I am now acutely aware of how hurtful my actions were." -- apparently because the Dallas Stars refused to release it! Former Rangers and Islanders goalie Glenn Healy who now works for the players' association said, "He knows he said something he shouldn't have. He's a good kid who used the wrong words in the wrong forum." As for a decision, a statement could be released later today or tomorrow; currently Avery is suspended indefinitely.
