BTW, I really don't understand MSL being traded here for Callahan. 1) I doubt he's THAT pissed at Yzerman, he's not a friggin teenaged girl 2) Even if they do want to move him, they can't get something better than a good 3rd line rental for him? Makes ZERO sense. If I were a TB fan I'd be laughing at Rangers fans right now.
All the static aside, think it's Cam Atkinson (RW for RW). The BC connection plus Columbus putting Dubinsky and Callahan back together again.
JD/Jarmo said they wouldn't trade for a rental, but w/ Gaborik coming off the books, they are building the Blue Jackets exactly in the STL mold, w/ gritty 2-way players, opposed to top line talent. Callahan would fit that to a T.
MSL, Patches, and other players who are CONSIDERABLY better than Callahan are just ridiculous proposals. Delusion abound on this board.
