Someone in the last thread said they don't think Cally will ever hit 50 points again, and I have to agree. Unless he ends up in Pittsburgh playing with Sid or banging in rebounds on a line with Stammer, I can't see it. And with that said (I hadn't asked myself "will Cally ever score 50 points again" until seeing someone else write it in the last thread) it makes it a lot easier for me to say goodbye to him at his asking price. Not that I was really having a hard time, since I didn't want to give it to him, but it's a bitter feeling, choosing between watching a homegrown crowd favorite whose jersey you've owned since before the A become a vilified, overpaid albatross or sending them packing. The notion of signing a guy to a six year deal with 6M+ per year, knowing full well that, especially on this roster, he's probably never going to even hit 50 points in one season on that contract puts it into perspective though and really reinforces why he shouldn't be re-signed. For me, at least, since I don't see him hitting 50.
