Lets get real here. Avery is still a third line agitator on most teams. He does a heck of a job, and it's not his fault this teams other forwards can't score when it counts or the defense is inconsistent. He's done more than what's being asked, and is using his skill effectively.

Avery is also not a dirty player, just really annoying. Tucker can be dirty, and I personally never really liked him. There's also no saying how he would fit in here. We know Avery does, but Tucker would be a huge question mark.
Not to mention Avery is fast, tucker is slow...
