Not really... I mean, sure, there's stick part of it, but there's usually much greater parity among players there.

For Callahan playing C would be a promotion he didn't earn.
Callahan was very promicing, but the fact that he didn't gain much weight makes him what he is - a speedy winger. You cannot be effective on defence in NHL if you're under 200 lbs or so. Centre, whatever line he leads is always your 3rd D.

KKK is top 6 material. He already replaced Drury. If you disagree with Drury part, how about he beat Neved for the spot? He will replace Gomez, if healthy and not traded in 5 years. Very few would remember who Callahan was then. You won't beleave that you compared the two. I will remind you.
