Callahan wasn't called up for a 'cup of coffee', or at least that's my opinion. My opinion was that here's a kid that many thought would be a third/fourth liner, but showed at the AHL level that he could score goals (and he's still quite young, despite being an overager the year before). I'm guessing they were hoping he'd show offense on a fourth line in limited time because this was what this team desparately needed, offense from lines other than the top two lines. I'd further guess that Callahan didn't show the ability to be that guy right away and thus wasn't the immediate answer tot he problems and he was sent down after 11 NHL minutes and three shots on goal.
