Mark Herrmann of Newsday has a column in today's Newsday about Avery's impact on the ice...
"...It says something about Avery and about hockey that he was the most compelling figure on Garden ice every time he's out there. Like it or not, this sport has a big place for a guy whose job is to be a royal pain in the neck. 'He's very good at his job,' Islanders center Mike Comrie said..."
...some Ranger fans are still weary of Avery imploding and hurting the team. I couldn't disagree more. This guy brings a grit and aggressiveness every night that has infected the entire locker room.
...plus he's one of People's sexiest alive.
