I'm not going to argue on the Callahan/Kulemin thing. I'll jusy say that insinuating Kulemin lacking in forecheck is ridiculous.
There is a difference when one guy skates throws a hit and takes teh puck away and another uses his skill trying to pull Pavel Datsyuk. Unsuccessfully.
On Flyers team only Schenn will be able to do what Callahan does on regular basis. I bet Schenn will be even better. A lot of guys "forecheck" but who gets the job done? I'd think twice before comparing any player to Callahan North South game.
Hartnell for instance. He forechecks but he is not even in the same universe when it comes to someone like Calahan.
