Callahan is built to play in the playoffs. This is a devastating loss for us. I just hope that (magically) if we make it to the conference finals or further, that he's able to play. It would not look right for us to be deep in the playoffs and for him to not be on the ice.
Disaster...this team this year cannot catch any breaks with injuries. Every key player outside of Lundqvist has been hurt for extended periods this season. incredible they're in the spot they're in.
I don't even think the Rangers are in the top 10 in man games lost to injury this season.
They've not had it as rough as ESPN continually states (e.g., "Injury-riddled Rangers....").
That said, Callihan is the Rangers in my opinion. He should be their next captain for a multitude of reasons. Other than Lundqvist, there's not a more important player on that team that they can ill-afford to lose.
