Avery wouldn't have lead the team in scoring in the series, nor would he have been effective on the power play like he was circa 2008, but the OP does bring up a good point. Avery was Brodeurs biggest enemy, we all know that, but he was also Kovalchuk's biggest enemy in the 2007 series against Atlanta. Hard to say how it would have played out with the Torts leash around his neck, but if he was set free and was able to straddle the line (not likely) or at the very least, take a Devil with him every time he got a penalty he may have made a difference.
I personally think he would have gotten Brodeur and Kovalchuk off their games, that could have been the difference between losing the series in 6 and winning the series period
