Callahan doesn't score 40 goals, I would take another Callahan over Gaborik.

I can see why you would but I wouldnt. Call me foolish but oh well. Elite goal scorers dont grow on trees and are very important in this NHL. I love Callahan, but he is overrated by our peers. He had a hell of a game the other night, but the team didnt respond with him and we ultimately lost. If that were a game Gaborik had a hat trick or just a few goals, we have a W.

Either way, its not something I would entertain anyway. They both have roles on this team separate from each other. On a team desperate for offense, I keep the more offensive player however. Callahan is the leader, but it says a bit when we lose other heart and soul guys like Prust and Dubinsky and the team struggles from it.
