That is a nice salary to play in the AHL. I don't think the Rangers have any intention on Newbury playing for the NHL squad at any point in the next two years. They must have liked what they saw from him last year after we got him. In my opinion they are paying him $250,000 to be a good presence/influence for the young players that come through the Pack the next two years. Solid investment if he keeps the locker room in order down there and acts as a mentor to our young players. Especially with Stepan and Grachev both potentially playing down there this season.
