That's a big part of why Tortorella rushed Hagelin. Tortorella wanted a reason to push Avery back down after his good start. But Mitchell keeps proving that he sent the wrong guy down.
A big reason he rushed Hagelin?
Hagelin is on this team over Avery because he's better, not because Tortorella hates Avery.
Avery was a nice player here for two years, then his act got old and he was never as effective in his role.
