my guess is that you really want to see an avery v caps circus tonight. avery starting stuff and erskine knocking him back.
if avery doesnt take a penalty tonight and just plays hockey, you will be disappointed.
My guess is that Torts really wants to see Avery vs the Caps circus tonight. Why do you care what I want. Torts made the same move I would make. its not rocket science, he is a better player than that short speedy guy he dressed instead.
If we take this game, maybe he wants to see exactly what you despise. A sore loser, someone to shake up his team. Or, he simply wants a bigger body in the lineup to get in on the forecheck. dont overanalyze.
