Those forwards are not a lot better, Callahan brings a bit more than Gionta brings now.
48 games is not that many games in the span of 3+ seasons... Look at how much time Gionta has missed since being with us. Yeah he has one actual 50 pts year but last year he would have easily hit that mark and in 2010-11 he had 48 in 60 games... Replacing Bourque with McGinn is an upgrade. Replacing Gionta with Callahan is a BIG upgrade. Having Galchenyuk play his natural position and a real checking line that can score goals.
