Tell me, how was what dorsett brought today any different than what Avery brought? That's not a knock against the guy, I loved Avery and really liked that dorsett played on the edge. We have a coach who makes arbitrary decisions and lets his ego get in the way of coaching this team...how else explain breaking up lines that are hot or leaving Richards on the Nash Line well into the second when anyone could see nothing

The minute they signed Richards this all was implied... Do you think Torts doesnt believe we have a shot?

Give me a a fucking break! What do you want the owner to say ..."well are expectations are to at least reach the second round this year..." this team should start thinking Stanley cup or bust. It's like let's pretend were not a contender so that if we don't win we won't be too disappointed.
It's truly surprising that people are surprised by all of this. He attempted to go down to the whale earlier in the year and be a professional and look where it got him. What's his alternative at at this point? To continue quietly being a professional and pray? Yeah, being a quiet professional is what made him so effective all these years, right?

The Rangers claimed him, didn't they. I think pure and simple Avery is doing what he has to do to not spend the rest of the season with the Whale.

Yeah, I would say this is all very much calculated. Hope he's able to get back in the NHL...itCertainly needs more characters like him.
I think Avery is playing a game of Russian roulette. He obviously has no other option. If he goes down to the whale and goes about things in a quiet manner it could give the impression that he's lost his fire. By doing what he's doing, which I think is one part frustration and one part calculation, he's saying, " hey I'm f-ing pissed about not being in the NHL!"

You have to wonder if Avery is trying to force Sather's hand
Do you think that Avery could be traded? I think he belongs in the NHL!

I thought the same thing about Torts. I've really been unhappy with how he's treated Avery and how he plays favorites, but man, what a decent human being.

nicholaspickelI love Dubi, it's not about Dubi...there should be a standard...isn't that what torts preaches
2 years, 3 months ago on Avery Out, Christensen In | December
Fine, Torts has problems with Avery, but he owes it to the team to give him a chance to help, he's done way more than that for EC, trying to pump up Head Case's ego earlier in the season by saying he's the complete package...I wonder what would have happened if Avery didn't pop in a few goals (important goals) or if he'd taken some bad pentalies...oh wait, he'd still be getting well over 17 minutes of ice time, power play, short-handed, the works, just like Dubinsky, right?

I really can't understand people getting upset about one of our players celebrating a goal. This is the league today...and obviously some of our fans: let's treat everyone with respect, get in line, don't say the wrong thing...sportsmanship...blah, blah, blah...for christ sakes! Maybe after a goal is scored the player should go talk to the opposing goaltender: "that was an excellent try, don't beat yourself up, I'm sure you usually make that save."
Did everyone notice how every player on the ice was trying to get Dubinsky the puck in the final min.? Thought that was very classy! I don't want to sound ridiculous, but I hope wolski and Rupp stay out... Neither have the speed or the hunger of Mitchell and hagelin

EvanSzymkowicz I agree about Dubinsky ... I like Feds but to me Dubinsky is the bigger threat if he can get going...when that line was together earlier in the season none of them (Dubinsky, Richards or Calli) were playing well... Now you have Calli and Richards taking off.. I think it makes sense to put them back together

Now that's what I call resilience Kevin :)! I agree hard not to get excited. I do have a problem with how Dubinsky is being handled though... I think he's being driven into a hole by torts...yes, he's not playing at his best, but is giving him virtually no pp time the way to go?
