Cap hit of $2.3M now, $2.53M (10% raise) I suppose. He is in the final year of his contract though so if he can pull of 25-25-50, that's Matt Lombardi numbers who got $3.5M as a UFA. so you think a RFA Callahan could get $3M per if he can show that much progress.
Yea, the key to that whole thing is progress.

If he doesn't make any, nobody can justify a raise.

If he scores 25-25-50 he is absolutely deserving of 3 mil, because he does a lot of other things as well.

But really, if he can't reach that point production, its really hard to justify a big raise like that.

Intangibles don't put the puck in the net.
