Cally plays well and puts up points when he plays a simple, grinding game. He keeps the puck in and then puts away the loose pucks around the net. Paired with Richards (a premier set-up guy) and Nash (a shooter), Callahan should get plenty of garbage goals just from putting in Nash's rebounds. The problem is that Cally seems to think he's Richards from time to time.

Hagelin seems to be the most likely candidate to move to the third. With his speed, he forces the other team to stay honest on D.
That is exactly the point, I think its too tempting for Cally to start to over thinking his station, if you pair him on the first line.

He needs to be surrounded with bangers. Guys who play straight ahead, unsophisticated hockey. Pyatt/Cally would be great together.
