The fact of the matter is that with all of the flotsom and jetsum that this team employs within the lineup, I find it amazing that someone like him has not been given a chance. When, at any given time, you can skate 5 4th liners and a waiver pickup, seems to me that it is a big flag that mayhaps it is time to give someone a chance.
I agree and don't here.

I think Callahan deserves a shot and should be up right now.

I don't agree that Callahan and Ortmeyer should not be competing for the same spot.

Callahan is one of those kids who is ideally suited to start out on the 4th line and then the third line.

Now that's not necessarily what HAS to happen, but I also don't think it's on the "never should happen list".

Now for a player like Dawes or Prucha or Dubinsky I'd say yes, but Callahan is probably the kid out of the bunch that you really could say would work that way.
