Ryan Kesler has logged a ton of miles on his body. All of the injuries. He is still a good player but his play will stay where it is and then decline. More decline than plateau. You look at Dustin Brown. LA wanted to trade him at the 2012 deadline but they didn't. Then LA won the Cup. Lombardi wanted to make Mike Richards the captain but the Cup changed that plan. Lombardi gave him 8 years and $47M last summer. Brown has struggled. LA better hope its just a down year for Brown. Pacioretty replaced him on the Backes-Callahan line. The Rangers are taking the right stance with Callahan. 5 years. McGuire was comparing Callahan to Drury yesterday. Wonderful. Drury was done at 33. All of the injuries ended his career. Even with 5 years,what will Callahan look like in 5 years? The roster freeze ends tomorrow night and then its 9 days until the deadline.

Girardi hasn't spoken to the media in the last 2 days, Unavailable for comment. He doesn't want to discuss the contract.
