Redden is a pretty good example of what a genuine class act would do in this situation. Guy signed a big contract that he never lived up to, but he was absolutely crucified by fans for it. Never had the rabid, irrational cult following that Avery has. Gets sent to the minors, what's he do? Goes and plays. Plays and mentors the kids to the point that he's now the captain of the team. Yet somehow, some people still would rather have the selfish, toxic prima donna who gets sent down and is so poisonous that they tell him to just stop bothering to come because he's a detriment to the team.
But clearly this is Tortorella's fault.
