To add my 42 million sense, let's not forget he is a free agent on July 1st. Since most agree we aren't truly Cup contenders this year, why not trade him, bring up JT Miller to take his role and grow into it, get back some good prospects, and if they feel he's indispensable, give him the 7 yrs/42 mil he wants in July (personally I would not give him a package worth more than, say, 4 yrs @ 5 million per).

I also think for a trade to get more than he is really worth as a rental, we might want to look for teams with depth in the organization, who are real good, probably an outside chance at a Cup but might elevate to elite status with Callahan. I'm personally thinking of the Bruins, who in my judgment are just a notch below Pittsburgh and the Ducks and Hawks, mostly because their power play reeks, and they could use a net presence like Cally and have the assets/prospects to get him.
