Regarding the value of Avery vs. Christensen, I really dont know. Dont like either one of them; think they're both largely inconsiquential and worthless at this point in their careers. Whats worse, is how Avery becomes a center of conversation when the team is struggling like hes some sort of difference maker. In all my years of hockey, I've never seen that happen with a guy who is in and out of the lineup as a #12 forward.
Just to carry forward the silly correlations going on here....every game we've won this year has been with Boyle and Dubinsky in the line-up. Therefore, logic dictates that neither of them should be benched because if we do we'll lose....
But on the other hand, every game we've lost this year has been with Boyle and Dubinsky in the line up. Therefore logic dictates that they must both be benched for the good of the team.
And for a final bit of statistical nonsense, Avery and EC have each had points in three games. The Rangers won all 6 of those games when either of them got at least one point. Therefore logic dictates that both of them should be in the line up because if either of them gets a point it means the Rangers will win the game.
