Let me clarify, any NHL player can hit a net corner or catch a goalie on the wrong move. ANY.
It all comes to consistency. Gaborik does it more constantly than Cally. That is why Gaborik's role is a sniper. Player can change his role over his career, but he could not do it on his own. Coach has to help. Cally, therefore, will remain a role player with goals scored being an extra benefit. Goals are expected from snipers. There is more to the hockey game than just hit the net. Or smashing someone's face. If Terrien decides to make Prust MTL Callahan it is possible to make it happen.
Wasn't Callahan second on the team in goals last year? Does that mean that everyone except for the leading goal scorer is a role player? Give me a break.
