(Callahan's best season to date is only one point better than Pominville's worst.)
I'd keep Pommer 10 times out of 10 unless NYR added something.
Other than their grittiness and scoring abilities, they are pretty similar. I think Pominville is an underrated captain, he's shown to be pretty clutch for us and is a staple in all situations. I remember some puck daddy article that was posted and he was top 5 in clutch situations or something like that. It basically comes down the points/grittiness, do you value the extra points that Pominville will provide or the tenaciousness of Callahan? Tough decision. I would love Callahan on the Sabres though, if we had both I would be ecstatic.
