Look, Lander is not, and has never been a go-to guy in terms of points. That's not his strength. If he out up points, excellent, but that's not generally his purpose. If I'd translate SEL to NHL he's a Callahan type of player.
That said, he seems to have been doing great after coming back from his injury.
Callahan had pretty strong offensive #s in the AHL and proved he didnt belong, and had an excellent season last season that Lander will likely never reach. 30 goals and higher than .7 ppg. The comparisons stop when you get to offensive production and capabilities.
I get that Lander brings more than his stat line, but I can't help but wonder if his AHL stat line is indicative that he will be a black hole offensively in the NHL. It's nothing against Lander as I love his overall game and intangibles, my point was that he leaves a lot to be desired offensively. He's still young and hopefully will start turning the corner, I was hoping for around .5 ppg in the AHL this season.
