Avery's contract may be a little steep, and I hope Hull and Jackson are right that he will pick his offense up.
BUT … I can see though that he could really help the team. He hasn't really taken a night off, he's only had one bad turnover that I can remember (but what Star hasn't to start the year), and he really has looked good with the puck. I hope he just picks up on the finishing ability.
Great non-call by the refs with Clarkson backing into Turco. If that was Avery on Brodeur it would've been a game misconduct.
I don't mean to troll, just a Rangers fan waiting for some old Avery Brodeur action...good smarts by Avery in that little tango with Clarkson to keep his cool. A lot of people who don't know about Avery only think he takes penalties, but he's definitely up there in penalties drawn throughout the league.
yeah there were definetly some good signs in the first.. Dallas still has to open it up a bit to get inside this New Jersey defense. You don't want to leave it until the 3rd against a team like the Devils...
