He was one of the best players from a hockey standpoint for us during that series.

And Tom, you don't think the coach has any say in the fact that this has stopped?

Or the fact that anything that's "mutual" between any other players in the league ends up with Avery getting an extra penalty from referees.

We've see it for long enough now to know that those who don't see it have a blatant Avery bias or don't pay enough attnention.

At the end of the year he'll still have the same amount of poitns as he always does.
