Dude, wtf are you talking about?! Over the past 3 seasons combined, Callahan is 133 pts in 181 games for .73 PPG (72nd in the league) and Horcoff is 73 pts in 159 games for .46 PPG (266th in the league). These numbers are not in the same stratosphere. Wanna see who they rank near to make it more clear:

Jaromir Jagr 0.75
Nugent-Hopkins 0.75
Bobby Ryan 0.75
Danny Briere 0.73
Ryan Callahan 0.73
Jeff Carter 0.73
Tomas Fleischmann 0.73

Niclas Bergfors 0.46
Andrew Brunette 0.46
Shawn Horcoff 0.46
Guillaume Latendresse 0.46
Mark Letestu 0.46
Linus Omark 0.46
Jason Arnott 0.45

Cally and Horcoff are in totally different leagues offensively! Dude, you're arguing in ******** useless circles, with wrong data no less. If you want to insist a guy who over a three season span finishes top 20 percent in league wide scoring is average, knock yourself out. You want to call him a third liner, when he scores more goals than the average third liner scores points, have a blast. I can no longer engage in this, however. Cheers
