I think you mean career minor leaguer? Look, that fight was all about Avery's mouth and the nonsense he's said about Clarkson this year. Clarkson is only 23 and developing nicely at his age; bottom line is if Avery doesnt want to get beaten up he shouldnt talk trash about people who have the abililty to fight. This could get more amusing as the days go on, because knowing Clarkson I fully expect him to force Avery to drop the gloves the next 2 times they play this year.
FWIW, no one will ever force Avery to drop the gloves. If he doesn't want to fight, he'll let Clarkson drop his gloves and take a few punches, and likely earn the Rangers a PP. It's what he does. No one goads Avery into anything... He knows what he's doing. Some might call it reprehensible and a blemish on the game, but it serves his team well. If he does indeed go at it with Clarkson again, it'll be because he wants to, not because Clarkson "forced" him.
You clearly havent seen much of him and/or arent factoring in the fact that he's a 23 year old rookie that logs 4th line minutes on one of the lowest scoring teams in the NHL. Not to mention the fact that Clarkson doesnt play with the best forwards on the team (Parise, Elias, Gionta etc...) whereas Avery often does. At any rate, comparing Clarkson to Cam is in a word......stupid.
