It's a very tough, highly-skilled sport. One's performance is also partially dependent on his teammates/opponent's quality of play on any given night. You're just not going to go out there and rip it up every night. It doesn't necessarily mean you're not trying.
Exactly. Dubinsky brings it every night and so does Avery. The puck is not going to roll your way all the time.

People like to throw around the term 'consistency'. If a player plays his butt off every game he's consistent regardless of his point totals. Unfortunately, some people call a player 'inconsistent' if they're not scoring all the time.

Essentially, Sean Avery has been labeled 'inconsistent' by some people because he doesn't score enough by their standards. Meanwhile, you watch the guy play and he's always flying into the corners going after pucks.
