Selective memories. For the first 3 or 4 years Callahan would bring the puck over the blue line-fade towards the right wing boards and let off a slap shot. He would do this about 80% of the time and every goalie in the league knew it. Maybe Torts is the one that helped him correct that but Ryan also back then would rather take the predictable shot rather than make a play. Drury was another--for a centerman he was not very good about distributing the puck to his wingers. Both shoot first mentalities.
