What gets ignored is theres usually not enough ice time to go around for these guys. And what gets further ignored is what other guys bring to the roster besides offense.
Im no fan of John Mitchell, I often referred to him as the invisible man, but he was responsible. You seem to be willing to trade responsibility on and off the ice for a few more goals from Avery (fictional goals, I might add, Sean Avery had 6 goals in his final 91 NHL games....thats less goals than John Mitchell over that span)
If you want to go that route, avery had 3 goals in his final 10 nhl games. Not to nitpick because sean avery probably wasn't the difference in us winning the cup but he was a better passer, forechecker, shooter, than mitchell. Yeah, mitchell was more conservative but he was just god awful. Can't leave out that avery does have the ability to throw alot of teams off their game especially martyyyy.
