He does it all for John Tortorella: grinding, shot blocking, JAM, good defensively and most importantly, low percentage offensive plays. He is a slightly above-average top 6 player who somehow gets ridiculous ice time relative to other forwards.

Ryan Callahan playing 21:26 mins a night on average is a big reason why the Rangers are so inept.
We've discussed this before. He's on every penalty kill and every power play, neither of which I think anyone had a problem with. If i'm not mistaken, his ES ice time is on par with or only slightly above average with the rest of the top 6
