Under Renney Avery's job description was much broader. He killed penalties, got more pwp time, played some center--got plugged into the top lines more. Tortorella doesn't seem to trust him as much. Not much of a fan of Tortorella at this point but he is the coach. He has to make up his own mind. To me though he doesn't have enough of the right personnel to get away with playing the kind of game he wants his team to play and his tendency is to change the lines not to change the strategy and when you have a team trying to pressure the puck all the time up the ice you're going to take holding, tripping, hooking and interference penalties because the D are going to be caught going the wrong way more often. Maybe it's just me but it seems that he and Sean seem to have an uneasy relationship and that he has reined Sean in and that has a lot to do with his having a kind of mediocre season.
