I don't remember Callahan killing too many penalties last year. He may be used in that capacity this year though--and even though I think he will he does have to make the team still. Avery seems to be out of the mix on both pwp and pk. I'd figure on him getting time at both. On pwp he can be a distraction in front of the net--going into the combat zones. On pk he is smart, will take a hit and is adept with the puck and at clearing the zone. One of the main good reasons for bringing Hossa back is the shootouts. Is it enough reason if it means trading a Cullen, Malik or Mara to make room for his contract? In any case I have no problem with Marcel on the pk but for the amount of production he's produced I don't think he deserves to be a permanent fixture on the first unit pwp.
