The question isn't whether Newbury is a good player at the AHL level, it's whether he can make the transition to the NHL. So far, the answer has been no and given that Newbury is 30 years old, it's highly unlikely that he will ever play regularly in the NHL. He's on the Whale to provide a veteran presence and may get called up in the event someone gets banged up, but that's about it.
