I'd rather he overpay Ryan Callahan than another aging UFA who'll come in, buckle, deteriorate, and become what all the others have. At least we know Callahan will work his ass off.
As for his injury issues, the only one that concerns me is his shoulder. The broken bones are from acute trauma, namely, pucks to bone. Those pucks would likely break any bone, and, medical fun fact: those bones that were fractured are now stronger, and less likely to break.
The shoulder with surgery is a concern, but what player doesn't have a few of those. Rick Nash is one Lucic hit from retirement.
That's such a defeatist attitude. If it's that bleak, why root for the Rangers at all?
