This is it exactly. When the team had Cally, Dubi, Prust, and co, it was a whole team of players playing that way, with Cally leading the way. It's much harder for a player to be in a room full of guys like that and refuse to play that way.

Now, it's pretty much just Callahan. When it's just one guy, he's the oddball on the team who loves to jump in front of pucks. It's harder for Cally to lead when the team got rid of most of his lieutenants/followers.
