Agreed. I was referring to the comment of wishing the rangers had a player that was visible on more than just the score sheet.

aside from dropping the gloves, which I don't believe has as much impact on a game as popular convention holds, Callahan is visible on as many of his shifts per game as a guy like Backes, Doan, or Lucic.

As far as tools go imho, I'd take a power forward with the elite skill level of Nash over a guy with the duality of fighting that Lucic brings.

And for two-way forwards: I'd take the duality of good offense and top flight PKer, who should be on the ice in every big situation, over the duality of a guy with good offense and hits a notch or two harder, plus drops the gloves.

Don't get me wrong though, I love Lucic's game. But I like Cally's more. And Backes' for that matter.
