As others said, nothing but a huge overpayment. His value to the Rangers is huge.

The phrase "heart and soul" is overused in hockey, but there are few players where it fits better than Callahan. Just look at how the Rangers crumbled when he went down. Dubinsky fades away when he doesn't play with Callahan.

It would cost quite a bit to pry Callahan away from Rangers.

That's what it would take. The OP asked what it would take. Your team has nothing else we need except for first line talent. Were not going to trade you our future captain, who would have put up 30 goals and 65 points this year, had it not been for injuries for anything else.

The OP is a Vancouver fan, no Ranger fan in their right mind would advocate trading Callahan, or else they'd probably be shunned from our boards for life.

What it would take is Kesler, otherwise, adios.

Obviously Kesler won't be leaving and we can also say the same for Callahan, but what if Vancouver had a deal built around Edler and Hodgson or something just for ***** and giggles.

It's a nice deal though, I'm just against trading Callahan, like most Rangers fans. I would need a legitimate leader and someone who can put up points. The backlash from fans if he was traded would be insane.

We really don't need help on defense. Callahan leaving would cause more of a void than Edler would fill.

That's what I was thinking, and that is a huge payment from the Nucks for a player like Callahan. Figured he would be a nice puckmover that the Rags need.

Staal/Girardi-good top pairing D
Del Zotto/ ???-needs a top pairing quality D
Sauer/McDonagh-good third pairing D

Am I missing someone?

It's a legitimate proposal, but personally I say no, as I think rangers management would as well. The reason it would have to be Kesler is because he is a skilled player and leader who can play in all types of in-game situations.

Right now, that's much more vital to the Rangers than a d-man. The Rangers could package a better deal of prospects and players for Edler if they really wanted to make a run at him.

Staal Girardi - Good Top Pairing
Sauer McD - Good 2nd pairing
Del Zotto/V-Tank/McIlrath/Kundratek/UFA - 3rd pairing.

As you see, we have a surplus of d-men. Yes, Edler would be nice, but the Rangers would offer up another package that would not include Callahan if they were to make a run at him. Something like

Girardi
Del Zotto
Horak
1st

I know the Rangers have a lot of good D prospects coming up, but what you have above is not a Cup winning D. Look at all the teams that have won the Cup or made it to the finals since the lockout and you won't see anything like what you guys have. Plus, if you're going to pay Lundqvist that much, build as good of a defensive team around him as possible. But if the Rangers aren't going all out for a Cup this year, then yeah, just develop your guys and go after it in future years.

Del Zotto played most of this season in hartford, because his play was just not nhl calibre. That said, he is only 20 and has a 37 point season under his belt from ihs rookie season, and just went through a sophmore slump this year, but he's still an asset. Not even close to a number 2 pairing defenceman right now though.

Secondly, Sauer/MCD are our number 2 pairing, and frankly IMHO, are a legitimate number 2 pairing, and considering their ages (23 and 21? respectively), will only get better. They logged a ton of minutes for us down the road and were just stellar.

I really think NYR are solid in their top 4, so unless they move someone in that top 4 for the right price in a trade for Edler, I agree with whoever said that moving cally for edler would create a bigger hole for the rangers.

See, I don't think that's necessarily fair to say for certain. Considering that they are one of the youngest d-core's in the league, and considering their play this season and rate of development, IMHO there's not way you can say that with that kind of conviction.
