ortmeyer had no skill? really? because i remember he was one of the best damn penalty killers we had.. he was a heart and soul guy, someone messier said could be the next captain of this team.. no skill? bs.. avery might have brought publicity back, but he did not bring respect back whatsoever.. look at the league and how they responded to his antics.. of course we all loved it but the league and fans around the league didnt and they looked down upon it
