When I see Callahan and Gaborik, I see to guys who fit their respective roles for this club. Gaborik isn't the guy to set the tone for this team, Callahan isn't the guy who should be asked to carry the offense.

This team is significantly less dynamic when either is not in the lineup.

With that said, Callahan is a very good player. But let's not make him something he is not.
Exactly. He's a 2nd line player. These types of players can be replaced much more easily than 40g scorers.
