I think its kind of sad that people watch these games and think "Man, we need Sean Avery"
But yet, they win with him in the lineup. Can you explain that? I mean, you're quick to point out where they've won without him, yet you dont bring out the numbers with him in the lineup.
Look at the all-time record with him in as opposed to out. NUMBERS DON'T LIE.
Can you honestly say that Eric Christensen brings more to the table than Avery? Christensen is a lump. Other people have said it in here, he sucks the life out of this team. Avery's 4 minutes would trump Christensens 30. Christensen was apparently put in because of shootout concerns and we haven't been in one since he's gotten the call. He's 1-3 on those regardless.
