I don't see why he needs to be an elite player.
If he wins a Cup as Captain of this team, I don't see how anyone can argue against his number being raised.
Again, standards are set very low if Callahan is up there. Only truly exceptional hockey players ie HHOF caliber should be up there. That's the etiquette and standards for most teams.
