Lidstrom had those qualities, Callahan does not have that kind of clout at this very moment although that in no way means he can't obtain it in the future.
I agree but I'll also point out that Detroit had more long time veterans with one team and a more established system and style that spanned over a decade that all of those players were bought into. Rangers are a youngish team trying to find their identity (almost had it) and its not as easy to just be a good example here and expect everyone to follow the leader.
