We're talking about this year's team.

Look at their record. Look at their record against good teams.

Again, it's not about Callahan. It's about the state of this team.

And I'd listen to offer for all of them. Richards is gone next year. I don't think that simply getting rid of Richards means the team won't be mediocre.

Dubinsky has 10 career goals as a Blue Jacket.

But the thing is: it's not about Callahan, it's about the state of this franchise. Take a step back, look at this team for what it really is and take emotion out of the decisions you make — you know, all the things this GM can't and doesn't do.
