Avery was drafted and not brought in. He wasn't drafted for his goal scoring potential/skills.
Too too was signed for his physicality and not his goal scoring skills either.
Bert is another story, was one of the best Power Forward in NHL but after Moore incident he wasn't himself. He was acquired for his size and physical play.
That's exactly my point. We were willing to bring guys in with character issues to help fill our needs as a team. Our biggest need right now by far is more goal scoring. So it should be a no brainer to give a player who consistently produces a chance to see if he can help the team. Especially when we've given "questionable character" players a chance in the past.
Lol Avery was not drafted. We straight up signed him as a free agent. And since your biggest issue is that Radulov will be a locker room cancer, I find it amusing that for some reason you're making excuses for Avery who might be the worst locker room cancer of the past decade from the beginning to the very end of his career, but for some reason you're talking about Radulov having off ice issues in Quebec when he was what? 18 years old?
And why does it matter what they were brought in for? Isn't your whole issue about him being an problem in the locker room for Dylan Larkin.
Forgot to correct him on that. We absolutely brought him in as a FA. lol
