The refs allowing Brodeur to punch him in the face and stick him in the nuts was the only thing wrong with that play.
Unless Avery can personally stop Malkin, Sykora and Sid then I don't see how we benefit from having an Avery. We're just plain awful all round, plain and simple. I'll admit he plays his role to a tee, but his antics was ridiculous the other night and was over the top.
