Messier had Graves and Graves became a scorer. Lemieux had Stevens and Stevens became a scorer. Gretzky had Esa Tikkanen. They always had someone to keep them safe and to do their dirty work. Avery can do it for Gabby.
Avery's name shouldn't be mentioned in the same paragraph as either of those other mentioned players.... Gaborik doesn't need anyone to protect him... He faired just fine last year playing with Prospal, Christensen, and Dubinsky.... Avery needs to stay onsides... We'll see how they look tonight....
