I argued that Avery can actually play hockey.
And then gave an example of a player that really is a waste of roster spot.
didn't mean to come off with "fighting words" but look...
i hate the boogard signing. he's nor worth the money, but he's a 4th liner who fights. that's a defined role.
avery is a third liner, we have enough of those and we don't need to be paying 1.9 mil for one.
we have plenty of guys who can do what avery does on the ice.
i personally enjoy most of his antics, but i don't see room for him on this team. torts obviously isn't his biggest fan and he's not a special teams guy. we'd be better off preserving the cap space in case we need to make a deadline deal.
don't you think?
(yes, i agree with you, avery can play hockey...you'll find no argument from me on that point)
