I usually give players the benefit of the doubt but he's after doing this enough here and there over the last few games and it's now drove me bonkers. I actually yelled at the TV last night on that exact play.

People can hate Avery all they want, he would have made that pass. Along with 95% of other NHL players.

Not sure if people got a short memory either but Avery was really strong down low and on the half boards in the offensive zone. But I admit defensively Mitchell is better.

As much as I liked Avery on the team I'm not clamoring to get him back at the expense of Mitchell - but Torts really needs to sit him down and replay the tape over and over of missed play to Staal last night and recently the missed play to a pinching Del Zotto. There's been a couple others too. All in the last stretch of games.
