Probably a little pumped against the Wings and the Funeral might have had him of his game a bit.

All in all, it is to early in the season to judge. Lets give him 10-15 games and see what kinda trend emerges.
I agree. I think we're all jumping the gun a bit on this guy. I think he was pumped up to play in Detroit, and wanted to prove something to them. Plus, it's the Wings and they get every stupid *****ing call imaginable. Some of the penalties were a joke. They do the same ***** and the ref just watches! The Lidstrom penalty in the end was pathetic. Avery needs to be a bit smarter and that will come with time. But i'm gald we have em' and so will EVERYBODY in time! He was insane in Vegas, and he'll continue to go after every super star in the league.
