GM Jim Schoenfeld: Whale callups knew system, were well conditioned, seemless. NYR would not make playoffs without what guys here did.—

Id you discount Ryan McDonagh and Mats Zuccarello, Kris Newbury played the most games of any call up with 11. Dale Weise was at 10, Evgeny Grachev at eight, Chad Kolarik at four and Jeremy Williams and Brodie Dupont at one each. Impact goes beyond points, combined they had two assists, and guys like Newbury and Weise had the jam that John Tortorella liked.
When the Rangers were done with injuries in that January to February stretch, these guys came in and helped out a lot.
