I think a more realistic comparison for Avery is a younger Matthew Barnaby. That's exactly what I saw us getting in the deal, and why I wasn't upset with giving up Cliche in the return.

In Avery I see a young player with all the necessary tools just waiting to be molded. He seems to have earned the locker rooms respect in his first eight games - when was the last time you saw Jagr jump into a scrum to protect someone! - and I hope he takes every opportunity given to him in order to find a sustainable niche with this club.
