Nobody said arbitration was easy. But after hearing the New York Rangers tear into him on Monday in Toronto, forward Sean Avery has been left with a bitter taste.

"I have no idea what to say," Avery told the New York Post in an e-mail following Monday's hearing. "I don't know what this was about. I'm shocked."

The Post reported that in the Rangers' brief to the arbitrator, the team said that Avery was "a reasonably effective player as well as a detriment to the team."

The brief also said that "Avery is not a mature player. He plays, at times, like an individual rather than a member of a team. This is sometimes referred to as an inability to see the ice, and in Avery's case this seems to fit with his overall approach to the game."
