For all the kids out there, you see, when someone has an agenda, they tend to manipulate and/or ignore statistics to help their case.

Fitzy, for example, when reciting his Avery nonsense, always makes it a point to ignore the assists column.

See, because if he didn't, then Fitzy would have to tell you that Avery also has 13 assists this season, for 18 total points, making him the 6th-highest scoring forward on the team, and that while only playing 12-13 minutes a night (Renney played him much more -- and with better offensive players -- than Tortorella has).

Fitzy also won't tell you that Avery is a +1 for the season -- and that Gaborik and Dubinsky are the only forwards on the team with a greater +/- for the season.

(These statistics were going into tonight's game)
