yea they have to be some veterans in the AHL. but how about veterans who played more than one full season in the NHL... i mean what knowledge can Newbury pass to a young kid like Jean, Miller, Thomas etc... this is why missing Redden hurts.. if i was a player id rather get advice from players who actually played more than a few seasons in the NHL like Gilroy and Redden....
