Everyone expected the speed, so it was taken for granted.
Ryan Callahan used to be "Ryan Callahan without the hands" when he was 23 years old. Give the kid time. He put up a lot of points in Michigan pretty much without any support. He had over 50% more points than the next guy. Without him, Michigan would be nowhere near the NCAA Finals.
Then he went to Hartford, another offensively-challenged team, and was one point away from the team lead in points while being tied for the team lead in goals. He's not a talentless hack who gets by on speed. He's just a rookie who will need to be careful at first as he figures out what the NHL is truly like.
