Avery isn't effective anymore. His antics have vanished. His offensive production isn't enough to warrant him staying around. No way Avery plays 82 games on that line and anyone who plays 82 games on that line could put up 10-15 goals.
You'd rather have Avery put up 40 points on that line supposedly making Richards and Gaborik better instead of WW putting 60 points up and somehow making them worse? How could he make them worse if he scores 20 more points than Avery would (hypothetically throughout 82 games)? Wouldn't that boost Richards and Gaborik point totals as well? You're contradicting yourself.
Even with WW's lazy, inconsistent play, he's still a far better producer than Avery. No contest.
