The moment any free-agent seems to stall on a number stats are brought up. This is a different case though because of what Avery brings to the team.

What I love is some of the fans on this board saying we need hard-working, grinding, intense players; yet they see Avery as expendable.

IDK what you guys think about hockey, but as a player you wan't to hear your name a lot usually, and every time he steps on the ice his name is called by an announcer for doing something. Thats why I blew money on his jersey.

yes, i want a team that brings energy and grittiness, however it doesnt mean i will overpay for those players....do i like avery, hell yes, however i think 3 million for a player who missed over 20 games last season and who, in the past has been a detriment to his team....i think 3 million is a very good contract
