It's a bit similar to Omark's situation in Edmonton. (Feels like it's only a matter of time before Omark is sent down.)

Both these guys still have good chances becoming good offensive NHL players, both of them offering some unreal skills. I don't want to see any of them in SEL yet. Hopefully both of them would prefer playing against the best players in the world in the NHL, not giving up their careers because their current coach doesn't like them.

About Tortella:
Putting Avery on waivers was a tough one but I still like him. He is a very straight forward and tough coach, no secrets, very direct and open with his views.
How are being open and forward and having no secrets good qualities in a coach? I'd be more than happy to have a coach who didn't openly give up his gameplan and his knee-jerk reactions on certain players even if they struggle for just one game, as long as he got results.

People seem to confuse qualities that would make a good friend or even a good comedian, for those of a good NHL COACH.
