Bottom line: the Rangers have to identify the players that they can keep to anchor the middle six. Is Callahan REALLY worth $6 million for a 2nd-3rd line type player who is injury prone and at the first stages of declining performance? Mike Keane would like to say hello...
$6 million is high. But the numbers thrown around in public forums or rumors tend to be high. Just like the speculation on the return you will get for a player. I'd guess that people will be disappointed by the return they see in a Callahan trade.
