The Prucha comparison is irrelevant. Prucha had one great year followed by a majority of his games being snake-bit.
Then why did you compare the two? Prucha didn't have 1 great year, he had 2 good years that were both better than what Callahan has done at the same age.
The point is, not only was Prucha better in a similar role at Callahan's age, but look how far he's fallen. The same can happen to Callahan, and if you watch them play they are fairly similar so there's a chance Callahan could fall off too. I don't think he will, but let's not act like he's going to be our 1st line winger for the next 5 years.

I think you mean on pace for 24 goals... he's also on pace for 7 assists, how impressive. On pace for 31 points this season, what a monster year.
