Just a few thoughts before I go:
Ã¢â‚¬Å“I thought he played an intelligent game, a high energy game,Ã¢â‚¬? said Shanahan, who began the night as Avery’s linemate. Ã¢â‚¬Å“You could hear the other teams chirping at him, but heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a very skilled player. HeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s excited about the game. HeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s into it. HeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s definitely a gamer.Ã¢â‚¬?
Renney spoke about the flexibility Avery allowed him in moving guys throughout the lineup. Naturally tonight was an extreme given his insistence on getting Jaromir Jagr away from Jay Pandolfo and Co. But chances are we’ll see more of that moving forward.
OK, more later…
