I know Newbury has never put it together at this level and thinking he could now is crazy but he does have some skills. Maybe they think he can be a better contributor on the 3rd line lw spot then Talbot. It wouldn't surprise me after Talbots piss poor performance last night. In which case a 4th line of Talbot-Hall-Rinaldo truely isn't that bad.
I would have much preferred they had just kept one of Raffl, Cousins, Laughton or Akeson up for that last top nine spot but whatever I guess. Bottom line in my mind is Talbot can't be a 3rd liner, we know from extensive experience that's not gonna work. At this point I'm willing to give almost anybody else a shot, even Kris Newbury
Edit: actually as I alluded to earlier I think maybe Homer wanted to try Laughton but Lavi scratched him. If you're not willing to fire your coach you can't exactly go up to them and tell them who to play and where.
