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.
Should Callahan play 4 positions?

If Gaborik,had scored instead of Callahan the team would have lost too. Same amount of goals.

Gaborik is 32. His offense is based on speed. That speed will start to deteriorate and he has injury concerns, that won't get better.
