Best we can possibly hope for is Cally being able to tough it out if we make it to the second round.

So depressing. This team isn't nearly as big a threat in the first round without Cally.

Implications of this injury...

1. Loss of leadership
2. Forecheck
3. PK
4. PP
5. 20 goal scorer
6. Stalwart on our top line

So, aside from Staal and Lundqvist this is about as bad a hit as we could take for the postseason.

I hate to be the one who says this, but we may need Drury for the playoffs.

For a team that has shown this much guts and perseverance, this is flat out sad. This team doesnt deserve this it really doesnt.

I feel so bad for Cally, he was truly playing at another level after he came back. Sucks, really really sucks. And this puts a damper on what will be an exciting playoff round imo.

This team is not going to go long with Callahan out of the lineup, he simply does too much for them. Cant recover completely from this but weve seen them rise up before to battle injuries.

Im really upset about this. ******* it.

Well, that is what the "Captain" gets paid for, right?

Too bad we can't get Kreider up here for a run.

Man that sucks. That's a monster loss. On the one hand, you think Callahan isn't this all world talent and that's why the Rangers managed to be successful in his absence this season. They don't relly on high skill level. It's all about effort. And that's something they have a distribution of.

On the other hand, he's the embodiment of what they try to do to the nth degree. That's a really tough loss. Oh well. I guess MZA gets another shot.

We can't have regrets guys. Cally gave up his playoffs, to try and get us in them.

He has lead this team with that type of identity all year, and we need to Rally behind Cally.

Can't look down or back.

Jean Ratelle.

Ryan Callahan.

The late season ankle injury strikes again.

I have to disagree with that considering the skill hes shown lately and the numbers he was putting up. The effort for sure is infectious, but Callahan was taking his game to another level he really was. You can see he is finding ways to get the puck into areas with what is becoming a patented spin around pass. That pass he made to Dubinsky was all-star skill level IMO. Im not discounting that.

While i agree with your overall statement, i think we have to recognize that Callahan simply means more to this team than we think in a number of ways, and this injury is probably close enough to a death-blow as you can get.

Damn that Chara. He did the same thing to Clarkson last year.

The thing that really strikes me is that despite the fact that his ankle was allegedly split in two, he still went out and saluted the fans at the end of the game.

If the injury proves true, I'm at a loss for words.

No gloom and doom guys. That is the team's identity: sacrifice. We have to live with it. He did his job to get us in the playoffs, and has dictated that identity all year. His presence will still be felt, and could cause a rallying point for the other players. Cally gave up his playoffs so we can get in them.

Rally behind Cally!

BS

If the medical staff couldn't figure it out after the game, then either, they are idiots, or Callahan is fine.

I agree. Huge blow, but this team did manage to play over .500 hockey in Cally's absence earlier this season. This team has played well in the face of adversity, and they played some of their best hockey when the team was wracked with injuries. So I think some of the "season's over" proclamations are premature. Now would be a great time for Gaborik to start playing like Gaborik and carry this team offensively.
