According to TSN, that has flipped recently. As the Rangers went 29-30-10 with Avery in the line-up and 8-3 without this season.
...this all comes back to Torts putting the reigns on Avery this season. The real Avery only appeared once every few weeks. And I don't need to tell you guys that if Avery can't be Avery there's really no reason to have him out there. We talk about roster changes this off-season, but one of the biggest changes that needs to be made is Torts deciding to let Avery play his game.
On the flip side the Rangers were 33-25-9 with Brandon Dubinsky in the line-up and 4-8-1 without him.
