I'm hoping that we carry a 13th forward for two reasons.
1) If someone is not feeling great or playing great he can sit. This will also make players give it all every night knowing there is a guy in the pressbox dying to get out there
2) To carry a gritty 13th forward for when we play physical teams (i.e. Boston)
To me that guy is Kris Newbury. I want to give him a league minimum 1-way contract. He's gritty, good on faceoffs and is more than willing to drop the gloves. For example for a team as stacked with toughness as Boston is we can't go into Boston with just Prust, Avery, and Sauer as our regulars who will drop em', having Newbury, a guy who can play as an equalizer would even up the physical play.
