People who aren't all over him just aren't paying attention. They're thinking back to when we first got him, when he was a 20-25 goal 30 assist guy plus the tough guy act he brought to a soft team. 3 goals on the year. 3 goals on the year. 3? That's just god awful. And he doesn't really do the tough guy routine much anymore for whatever reason (doesn't really matter why). He's getting less important minutes, yes. But 3 goals is dreadful for even a fourth liner. Just as a means for comparison Blair Betts has 5 goals this year. He averaged just over 6 over his time with us. And he was a guy that was a defensive stud and could take big faceoffs. With Avery we get an ineffective offensive player who takes bad penalties and can't stay onsides.

Counterargument: But but but it was funny when called brodeur fatso!
