I added 'on the ice' for that particular variable - his style of play is reckless, and that is definitely going to have him missing some games along the way. But, a player with the mental capacity of Callahan can adjust, and change his style, while still being just as effective as before. As Sting point out, Callahan is an excellent stick checker. He needs to focus on using his stick to defend more so than sacrificing his body to accomplish that.

'Worth' is a subjective term among fans - mainly because there is no concrete general opinion regarding a players' supposed 'worth'. Strictly using facts - or, in other words, 'comparables' - Callahan's cap hit should fall between $4.2M and $4.7M.
