Yeah, this. Plus Callahan was older than Thomas when he really broke out at the junior level. Before that he had good, but not really great numbers (for the CHL anyways).

They're just different players with different strengths is what I'm saying and I don't know why someone essentially compared them. Thomas will serve a different role than Callahan in all likelyhood. The size comparison is even off because while Callahan isn't big, he's still decently bigger than Thomas
