What lack of production? That's absurd.

We're not talking about last season, when he played primarily with Richards, a guy that isn't a good fit for him, and still had a very good year offensively.

We're talking about the game against the Islanders.

And if you don't like the fit with Richards or Stepan, you might want to consider that both of them aren't very fast, where as Callahan is. It's not about grinding style; it's about speed.

Playing him with Boyle is a waste, because playing with Boyle. there is hardly any offense to speak of.
