Some observations from someone in neither the love Avery or hate Avery crowd.
To the love Sean side:
Keep the comparisons to those who play the same position, comparing him to Boyle, EC or Prust doesn't help your case no matter what you think of those players, and if your counting on Prust to be a significant offensive contributor then this team has bigger problems than Sean playing in NYC or Hartford.
To the Hate Avery side:
He was a regular on the PK during his time in LA and here under Renney, in 07-08 when the Rangers had the #6 PK his SH/TOI was :50 per game. In 06-07 split between LA and NY he averaged 1:41. I know you hate him but lets not overlook facts.
To both sides:
Pick a stat and stick to it...last year the hate crowd pointed to lack of goals and the love crowd pointed to assists. This year the hate crowd is pointing to lack of assists and the love crowd is pointing to goals.
I'll step off my
now and let both sides continue this
