To come into NHL straight from College hockey and perform like that is impressive, even more so when it's the playoffs where it's gonna be harder to produce since it's the seasons best teams in it and you get less open ice than you do during the regular season (unless you were participating in the Flyers - Pens games that is ).

You mean the team that has got Newbury as their leading scorer? How can't he produce with such a great player next to him
And then to completely stink it up in the AHL... But yet, the bubble never bursts with Ranger fans. .36 pts//game in the AHL and future NHL star.

But wait, are you saying that points don't tell the whole story? Hmmm, what a concept. Perhaps the same rings true with Emelin who had to adjust to NA hockey at age 26. Its not like he couldn't make the Habs at age 23 (when they were desperately trying to get him to commit).
