Avery is gone. finished. he was effective his first tenure here and a little in his second tenure. Tortorella had him "fixed".
Although I am a fan of Sean, what you say is true. Lots of folks here point out his failings. Like you say, Tortorella took something that was actually valuable, and let it go.
Maybe Renney was much more special than I thought. Perhaps I should not blame Tortorella, since there are no other coaches who would want Avery, but I will always say that Avery did have something pretty unique going for him that is no longer there.

End of discussion.
