Shame what happened to Callahan

Before he got injured he was playing outstanding. Since he's been back, he's been playing outstanding. I really think without the hand injury he'd have the stats to show how far he's really progressed. He would crush his previous season highs in points and goals. He still is on track to beat them however but I think this injury really prevented him from having his breakout season

Numbers to extrapolate to a 30 goal 30 assist 82 game season so far.

He still has the numbers. Most people will realize he was injured and see that he had a tremendous year, especially given what he does on the opposite side of the puck. The problem is most non-Rangers fans don't look at Callahan's numbers at all and just assume he's a solid 15-20 goal two-way third liner. With a previous career high of 40 points, he's made an easy 60 point pace this year, which is huge. Unfortunately, I think the popular conception of Callahan is he's a leader, hard worker, great PK guy and a 35-45 point-per-season maximum. I have a feeling even if he hadn't been injured and hit 60 this season, the uninformed perception of him wouldn't change much. That's the shame, IMO.

Which might actually save us a million or two on his next contract.

He is on pace for a 30-30-60 over an 82 game season. Pretty good for a "3rd line winger", same as with Dubinsky.

Same could be said about Dubinsky.

The Rangers value Callahan and his injury will not prevent him from getting paid this summer. Callahan will be paid this summer.

When Dubinsky went down I was really concerned it could affect what so far has been his "breakout season." But since he's been back, the last few games he's picked it right back up. Consistently creating, finishing, and now the points are coming too. 3 points shy of his career-high already.

Callahan I was less worried about. His points to me, are just a bonus. They're important, obviously, but what he brings has been so much more than that for the last 3 years that I didn't doubt he'd keep it up. His 60 point pace is impressive as hell, and you've got to love the guy.

Really though, as a Rangers fan, you've got to love both of them.

It was interresting he really started to lose "it" right before he was diagnosed withe the break and when getting back he had the same rust to him but it seems like it could all be attributed to the injury b/c he's back and playing well more and more every game. Cally I dunno seems he's due for a yearly injury although this was more of a freak accident he got unlucky with. He's due every penny he gets

Yeah, honesty keeping the exact numbers down will help us come contract time (hopefully)

Why didn't we trade them for Tyler Bozak when we had the chance?!

Exactly.

It sucks both of them got hurt, but it saves us money... In a cap world, it's all about getting guys at the smallest amount of money possible.

Its a pretty messed up situation when you are happy that two of the teams better players got hurt because it saves money on a contract.

Yeah, no one was happy when they went out of course, but looking back they're both continuing their excellent play so it is a plus.

Not happy? It sure sounds like it. Honestly, Id rather pay the extra 500k to 1 mil each to have had these guys healthy the last month.

And if people think theyre gonna get less money because they got hurt, I believe they are mistaken. The difference is going to be insignificant if anything at all.

If you have to try to minimize their injuries by saying it will save us money, its just a sad state of affairs.

Ever hear of a silver lining? Not what we wanted, but there may be positive to be found in what occurred.

Therefore, if it had to happen....

I'm not happy they were hurt. But let's be realistic...this is a business. And if their injuries result in them making a few hundred thousand less per year on their next deals then that's a good thing for us. Hardly a sad state of affairs.

At least it may (or may not) reduce his cost this summer.

I'd like to have Dubi, Cally, Arty, and Sauer locked up very long term.

It shouldnt even be in the discussion when it comes to saving a million bucks or so. The point is that we have so much money wrapped up in useless players, like Drury. If the management of this team did not screw up in the past, we would not have to have to worry about saving a few hundred thousand in negotiations with some of our good young players. It is a sad state of affairs when you have to even discuss saving a such small amounts of money.

When I say very long term, I mean career.

I'd REALLY like these guys to play their careers here:

Dubinsky
Callahan
Anisimov
Stepan
Staal
Girardi
Sauer
McDonagh
Lundqvist

silver lining? we shouldnt have to need a silver lining. it just shows how screwed the situation is. there should be no worries about paying the best young players on the team.

I'd add Del Zotto, because that'd mean he figures it out and becomes what we all hope (think) he can be.
