I'm not a part of the Avery crowd, far from it. But I would dress him in this game and give him 2nd/3rd line minutes plus power play time. He is on a mission when he plays Dallas.
I won't cry if he is scratched, though.
If Avery is actually capable of turning it on against a certain team, and chooses not to every game, then he does not deserve to be played for that reason. He deserves to be sent right back down to the minors.
"I have something better than proof: I have anecdotal evidence."
Yeah, I have it. I mainly use it for cropping, never figured out how to use it like you and some others do. Use Photoshop CS5.
Tons of PS examples out there if you get an idea. Gimp is not as wisely used as PS so examples are harder to come by but some of the PS examples translate to Gimp. Practice makes perfect. Home work first of course.
The theme of the year seems to be redemption redemption redemption. lose a few, win a bunch, lose a few win a bunch. Micky Del Zotto, Sean Avery, Sean Avery again (pending), Lightning game w/ Richard's first win back in Tampa and now it's go time against the Stars. I'm slightly worried that the team won't play their usual game just as much as I am worried about Bachman. They might try and do too much to get Richards some goals? Too aggressive coming off of the 6 - 1 W against Florida? I think our defense will be the key from our perspective. Defense which relays to the goaltending Bachman is one of those goalies that comes out of no where, does fantastic in his debut run and goes 4-1-1 in his 6 games and then gets sent back down for more AHL ice time as soon as Kari is healthy again. He's pretty calm and collected on shots and rebounds but that was against a pretty disorganized Kings team. In any case, our insurance policy is Henrik and even if Bachman plays well, Hank can outplay him
You shouldn't dress a player purely based on the fact its his old team. He should want to play night in and night out, if he doesn't have that drive, there are literally thousands of other players that would give their right nut (sorry Phil Kessel) to be there.
