Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,
Avery has looked lost lately. It isn’t that his hands have turned to stone around the net, or that he hasn’t been able to contribute to the breakout without first going backward with the puck, or that he hasn’t been able to cleanly receive passes.
It’s that Avery is not fulfilling the role he was born to play, the one in which he forechecks, grinds and cycles like crazy and antagonizes like he’s certifiable.
The prevailing wisdom was that Avery would become a better player if he left the extra-curricular activities behind. But that wisdom was actually ignorance in disguise. Avery needs to play with bravado, he needs to stoke emotions and he needs to skate on the edge.
