Avery played hard for us, and always stood up for his teammates. During the dark years, we didn't see much of that. I respect Avery for being there on the ice for anyone wearing his sweater.
He's obviously immature or just a jackass, which is why trouble seems to follow him. Some of it may not have been his fault, but it is what it is. I can't say his reputation as a bad apple is totally undeserved.
I enjoyed the good times with Avery, and even some of the bad. I'm sorry that it ended the way it did, both in terms of his demotion and the way he handled it.
I wouldn't be surprised to see him make an appearance a year or two from now, give it one last go. Either way, I'm sure he'll be successful in whatever he decides to do.
It's just pain.
