True. But, sometime just doing it on the Ice is not enough. Callahan is a pretty good leader. That doesn't mean we don't have heart and soul players.

I do think he's expendable though. Playing a gritty, defensive style, Callahan is great. He's not so great when the play is quicker with better breakouts, and he's not very good when the game opens up.

Put him on on a team that grinds, and outworks other teams with their physical style, I'm sure he'd thrive again.
