Avery on his struggles...

- The quick summary is that Avery felt it took him a long time this season to get comfortable and figure out exactly how he should be playing, finding that balance between being his agitating best and not running afoul of coach John Tortorella’s desire to see him stay on the right side of the line.

“I think I had some good games, some bad games, some just OK games,” Avery added. “I’m certainly not ecstatic about my year. I’m disappointed with the consistency. I was trying to find my game, trying to feel comfortable with what was asked of me.”

Avery said he tried to stay within himself.

“Probably too much, if anything,” Avery said. “That’s what took awhile, to find where I needed to be. I’m disappointed it didn’t happen sooner. The good thing is it did happen and that’s something i can sit with over the summer.”

And Avery believes it should lead to him starting next season at that level of comfort with his play and how he needs to play. Missing the playoffs should provide everybody’s motivation for the summer
