I agree but it's pretty clear that Torts wants Avery off this team as soon as possible. I think he's willing to play Zuccarello over him even if it doesn't make us better. The writing has been on the wall since he got here. The odds of Avery playing a significant role on this team this season are less than 25% at this point.
