I think a lot of fans have too high expectations for Avery regarding offensive production. I think he scored 15 one year in his late 20's, the man has never been about goals. Its the "under the skin" and hustle 3rd/4th line role that made him a success in the NHL. If someone said to me " Sean Avery would have 25 points in the 2010-2011 NHL season" I would have wished for maybe 5-7 more but its about his career range. I would have guessed about 10 goals and 15 assist, not 3 and 22 but I think the expectations are too high.
He hustles and gives great effort, unfortunately, sometimes that energy translates to bad penalties, but also year in and year out hes also in the top of the league in drawing them.
One last thing, theres tons of players that have investments all over the city, who have hobbies and don;t always worry about hockey because, hey, their human. Sean Avery likes to have a good time and likes to invest his money, I'm not going to front on it.
