Avery was on a leash. Not saying it was justified or not, but he didn't have the same amount of freedom from when he joined the team.

Still, one of the most overrated players that rocked our jersey in a long, long time. I was an Avery fan until his effectiveness cooled off.
Renney got a lot more out of Avery than Torts did. Torts did not like him and refused to use him in roles where he would be effective, so it is best that he is no longer on the team. The Rangers have never replaced him with another pest-type player. It is a hole in the lineup today.
