A lot has to do with the coach as well. Avery had the green light more or less when Renney was coach. Tortorella is a bit less appreciative. The Zebra's as well have targeted him for a while--calling him for numerous borderline infractions and not calling opponents for the same.

Avery has his own side interests and distractions. FWIW I don't know how this season is going to turn out for him. I think he's going to have to turn it up a notch because there's more competition for his job. The Rangers as well are a tougher team with Boogaard and Prust--maybe someone like Byers. None of them agitate like Avery though and when he's on the team has a lot of extra edge.
