MZA needs top minutes, playing 5 minutes a night with Rupp and EC aren't going to help him develop nor make him look like a superstar. Torts has not been using him correctly, the fact he isn't getting any PP time or he didn't even try and play him with Anisimov and Callahan when that line was awful all night shows either Torts has no confidence in him or he just plain old forgot about him

Newbury besides providing grit (which we all know and expect) is good on faceoffs and can kill penalties, some have suggested Dubi and Cally were gassed from all the PKing. I am not into that excuse as we are 3 games in, but hey now they don't have to kill as many penalties as we can roll
Boyle-Prust
Newbury-Stepan
Anisimov-Fedotenko
and throw out Dubi-Cally... so plenty of PK options

My only problem with this move is Newbury takes a ton of penalties, Hollweg and Avery style, which is something this team cannot afford right now. He better play smart hockey if he intends to stay and get some icetime.
