It would have been nice to have him doing what he does, but it wouldn't have changed the series much like having more guys like Dubi would have. Until we get more legitimate top six guys, Dubi is way more valuable than Callahan for this team.
Seriously? Callahan is our best forechecker. We play so much dump and chase because our transition game sucks and with dump and chase, you need people to go hard to the boards and get the puck. Nobody on this team is better at that than Callahan, though Prust is a close 2nd.

Having Callahan in the lineup would have made a BIG difference in terms of offensive zone possession time.
