Sean Avery Benched Again

From Dan Rosen’s NHL.com blog:

Well, Avery didn’t play Sunday in Bratislava and he’s not in the lineup today in Zug.

Why? Well, I won’t get the chance to ask the coach until after the game, but I can figure only two things: Either Tortorella has seen enough of Avery, who injured his lip against Frolunda on Friday, and wanted to get a real good look at Christensen without having to worry about watching another player as closely, or Avery is on his way out.

I could be way off, but that’s what I’m going with right now. I’ll find out more from Tortorella after the game.

continued…

Torts doesn’t like his act.  He’ll end up in Connecticut, no one will claim him.  He will return when there are injuries and be a contributor.  Torts isn’t taking him until he has to.
