Callahan is 7th in forward hits this year, 5th last year, 12th in 2010-2011 despite missing 22 games, 3rd in 2009-2010, 3rd in 2008-2009 and finished at a 7th overall pace in his first extended NHL action in 52 games.

If he didn't block shots with such reckless abandon, he'd be higher still on those lists.

If Larsson is in the same mold, I'll be over the moon, but I haven't heard anyone mention anything close to that kind of physicality.
