What a ******! Get him out of here! Because if there's one thing we know, it's that the money that would be spent on Callahan, who earned it by helping carry several absolutely pathetic teams into the playoffs numerous times, will instead be used in a far wiser fashion. That's what Glen Sather does best, after all. Everyone that thinks Callahan will be the next Drury will surely be thrilled when the money that wasn't paid to Callahan will instead be paid to the next Redden or Gomez.

Sigh...this team's fanbase gets harder to stomach with every passing season...
I'm sorry, were we talking about Derek Jeter, who was a key player on five championships and an all-time great at one of the most important positions on his team? That guy I'm comfortable overpaying out of loyalty as he declines, especially since there's no hard cap in the league he plays in.

But I thought we were we talking about a guy who is currently a 3rd line RW, who's claim to fame is that he was part of a core that lost an ECF, that will surely break down (check that, is already breaking down) and who is looking for one of those Drury/Gomez/Redden contracts you mentioned. That guy, on a team that needs several key pieces (3rd line RW not being one of them) to compete for a cup, is someone I am ABSOLUTELY okay with trading.
