Maybe Torts felt that you can't sit Christensen for 30-40 games and hope that when needed he can be called on to hop onto the ice and perform.

It's not that big an issue... guys have to play once in a while to not lose that "game pace" feel. Practice doesn't cut it, not even close, at this level.

Also, we're not in the lockeroom... if Avery has something else going on, off ice, that we're (shockingly) not privy to, then we should trust Torts, feelings about him aside. I'll bet Avery is inserted into the lineup in the next week or so.
