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.
the only reason i see Newbury making the Rangers is if alot of injuries happen during the year or he replaces Voros as the healthy scratch/14th forward with Byers Prust and Shelly as the 4th line.
