He will still have ample playing time on 3rd. Jagr doesn't kill penalties. Callahan is a very good player, but he will never be an elite performer because he lacks skills and most importantly size. I do want him on the team, but not as top 6.

When you look at player age and project the possibilities of him playing in twilight years, it is just opposite to prospect evaluation. Size is everything. Large players are able to go into 40ies being very good.
