It's funny how Avery has seemingly pulled this team together. I think issues with Jagr and team chemistry have been overblown since he's been here--especially the "flap" with Aaron Ward--but everyone seems to be legitimately close right now. Jagr laughing with Shanny and Avery, people sticking up for one another, it's just great. The team has really gelled.


It's just pain.
