Oh and Callahan was 4th in Selke voting too. And you're saying he's worse defensively?
Blocked shots and hits are a horrible way to judge defensive abilities.

Pretty random; is there some background about the two players driving the comparison? Different draft classes.

I see Oshie a lot by virtue of being in the Central; I think he is the better playmaker and is more explosive offensively. That said, Callahan is the more complete player, puts up more goals, and has those "Toews intangibles" everyone loves hearing about.

That's irrelevant because he plays wing. Just ask anyone

I think highly of Oshie, but I might have to go with Callahan. I usually prefer the centre over a winger when the "calibre" is similar, but I really like Callahan's game, and he has already started putting together a better track record of having an impact in the playoffs.

I love Oshie, and he fits our current team perfectly. That said, I would trade him straight up for Callahan.

Oshie is a winger, not a center, just so you know. Sorry, a pet peeve of mine.
