You're looking to me for the arguements of other posters. Avery's goal totals will never be my reason for "knocking him" I don't expect him to score goals. I call that a bonus. To my eyes, he has been a non-factor (within his given ice time).
I don't like Avery's game. I've never hidden this fact. I like the physical game, and it's fun watching other teams get pissed at him, but I don't think his intangibles make up for his lack of versatility on the ice.

As far as personality goes, I don't even have that much of an issue. When he spoke out in favor of gay marriage rights, he earned A LOT of respect from me. You don't normally see an athlete do something like that. I do not think he makes us a better team.
