How many did PIT take after his sucker punch show a day before? It was not incidental. He costs us.

Yeah, right... He is paid 4 million per for passing.

That is reserved for Jagrs and Gaboriks. I don't think anyone takes seriously a depth forward like him. A few hits and his ice presence can be diminished. He needs to show his relevance by doing other things, like one he did to Smid.

Feds is the two times Stanley Cup champion. All that Avery got is Youtube videos with incredible dives and the similarly huge sucker pops.

That what bottom 6 player has to do stay in. At some point I though he could be a top 6 player, but I was wrong, hockey sense he's got is not a substitute for his size .

Look, I am not in favor of moving Avery, he was a good locker room force for Renney and a good spare part for Torts. He doesn't cost a fortune. Just don't make a Ranger Icon out this pest. And do not make others, like Christensen, to pay close attention to what he does in order to know what to say about him. They have to be consumed by the game, not by BS.

Well put. And don't ya just HAVE to admire him for that? I call that integrity.

I think we'll agree to disagree and leave it at that.
