The biggest problem for me is that he is a guy who perfectly fits this system: shotblocking, grenade puck-handling hockey. There is no way in hell he should be playing those many minutes, he's simply not good enough relative to the other star forwards who receive that similar ice time. When the Callahan era is over, fans will hopefully witness exciting hockey for once. Leading by example, block all the shots!
So, you're gripe is that you hate the system and the style of play, and you think Callahan is a major reason he's keeping it here?

Bolded: he recieves normal top 6 minutes at even strength. The numbers are inflated because he is going to be on every single PK and PP, areas where he thrives.
