Yea pretty much but reality is they were likely just going get in and at most get one upset before they are booted. That's reality.

With Cally I agree they could go further. Really sucks

If there was ever a player that could fill in Callyís shoes, itís the ORIGINAL Callahan...
Chris Drury. Regardless of his season, he could redeem himself in the eyes of many if comes in and helps us clinch the PO and brings his patented clutch plays.

If he comes in and bombs then we know for sure heís done, but Iím hoping he hasnít forgotten what this time of year means. Come on Chris! This may be the last time youíll get us ranger
Fans to rally behind you. Donít let us down.

It's really bad, but it's not THAT bad.

As others have pointed out, the team was above .500 when Cally was out earlier, and that was without Prospal, Wolski, Feds, and even Dubi for some of the time to help with the slack.

The season is not over, not by a long shot. Only single injury that would make it so would be Hank. *knocks on wood*

One can hypothesize about potential callups/replacements, can they not?

To be honest I start to worry about Callahan's career if he keeps getting these injuries...he's going to wear down fast and be out a lot sooner than he should be if he keeps breaking everything blocking shots

A broken ankle pretty much puts him out "for the season" unless we make it to the stanley cup finals.

Of course, at this time of the year, and injured player is listed as "day to day" regardless of whether or not the player is still alive.

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.

****
While Callahan and Dubinsky both skew towards the effort end of the talent/effort scale. That was a very smart play by Callahan last night to pull the puck out and reset the play that led to the third goal.

Hope he is fully healed for next season.

Most of the top teams in the conference are dealing with serious injuries as well. One guy shouldn't decide a team's fate.

Ok, potential replacements and Drurys effect on the team's play if he returns can be discussed, but I just dont want it to go completely off topic as it usually does when Drurys name is brought up. There is a Drury thread right under this one.

It could be just a small fracture that he can't play on right now and will heal up fine...at least that's what I hope. Ankle injuries suck hard and if it's a bad one then it hurts in all kinds of ways

e: if this report is even true, since we don't know yet. The Rangers will probably just come out and say that Callahan has a "lower body injury" and is "day to day"

Eh, small fracture from a Chara shot? Hate to say it but with the blast that dude has its probably shattered.

I sure hope you're right. Can't we get some super boot with a skate on the bottom that we can wrap him up in? If anyone can do it it's Cally.

I dont know if you have ever broken a bone, but if his ankle was shattered, there is no way he would have been up that quickly.

If it was shattered he would have crawled off the ice. Also depends on where the shot caught him and how dead on, etc etc

AG saying Newbury was sent back down and Gilroy may be tried at wing? I guess he could be a possible option as a replacement if Drury isn't ready yet.

Terrible injury for us.

lol, just saying.. If it was "SHATTERED" I doubt he'd be skating on it like that. Just an observation, who knows though.

how about the team in general? if blocking shots is our "style" going forward we better start bringing in robust players and teach our guys how to block shots!

there's a time and a place for it, but dropping down in front of Chara slapshots is neither imo. This isn't a "style" that is going to get us very far.

When are they going to say something? All of the secrecy and the "upper/lower body injury" BS is so annoying.

There are all kinds of ankle fractures. Brian Leetch played 23 days after blocking a shot and breaking his ankle in 1993. He also missed the remainer of a season (10-12 weeks) in 1990 with a more serious injury. Bobby Baun scored the winning goal in game 6 of the 1964 Stanley Cup Playoffs on a broken ankle. Let's wait for the doctors to weigh in.

And as for the Rangers, Next Man Up!

That's how it has worked all season long.
