Talking to the refs and the appearance of whining are two different things.

I'm a hardcore Ranger fan, and I can objective state I think Callahan is someone who embellishes and whines. Which isn't the worst thing in the world, especially if he plays a complete game like Callahan typically plays. But even in the post season this year, I see him as a player constantly looking to the referees for a call, when he should just play the game.

And I'd throw all of that out the window if he could make a difference in the post season. But just like Nash and Richards, I see Callahan not meeting expectations. And for the team to be better, the Captain has to step up and score some big goals when it matters. The only goal he scored was in a game against the Capitals that we had already won, and wasn't all that meaningful.
