When Avery was with the Rangers this season there was nothing out of the ordinary in terms of not "behaving." The guy put his head down, and took one minor penalty in 15 games that put the Rangers shorthanded. He scored some goals, controlled the puck down low in the offensive zone and he still found himself benched for heavy minutes despite playing a strong, disciplined game.

If I was in his shoes, I'd be putting this current demotion on Torts.

But you're right, he's made his own bed and THAT'S why other NHL teams won't bite on him on waivers.
