Wouldn't this be true for every offensive player on this team? If it were, wouldn't it push him more into the middle of the pack in penalties?

I thought exactly that on the interference call against him late in one game and for the chop on the legs as he fell down to the ice. Avery has zero leeway right now as I'm sure many want to make his life as miserable as possible because of their disdain for him.

Often older players are better off with less ice time and more days off, especially towards dog days of the season....Hockey really is like life. In life you start and end in diapers, bald, and having someone else feed you. In Hockey you start and end a career with minimal ice time and fighting to show your worth. There are always exceptions but many go the way of Gary Roberts.
