I think its awesome to have that number of prospects that will probably be at the AHL level already.

I also know that some discredit AHL "lifers" as some players burried in the minors with no NHL future, but I advocate that these vets play an important role when these prosects develop: They lead, they have experience, many have a work ethic that matches or even tops that of an NHL player, they are someone who can bring stability and guidance.

Therefore I find it very important to have solid and performing vets in Hartford. Newbury's loss will be greatly felt, he was the de facto Mark Messier of the Wolf Pack. I hope the NYRs organisation hasn't forgotten about this aspect.
