Either way, it's exciting to see that Cally is willing to throw down like that. It took 3/4 of the season, but I finally can no longer worry so much about team toughness. We have our patsies, obviously, but we've got a good amount of tough guys and players willing to stick up for each other.
There were a couple of weak jabs thrown that the cameras didn't catch because they panned away, but for the most part, it was a glorified wrestling match.

If you want to see him throw some haymakers, check out this link:

At the start it's another wrestling match, and the camera pans away, but about halfway through the camera pans back to him throwing bombs.

Night and day, very disappointing.

What was so weird is that Lundmark WAS a hard worker and that's not something that usually just disapears. This kid was Mr. Everything on that Moose Jaw team in 1999, faceoffs, scoring, minutes, leadership, fighting, checking, you name it.

The general feeling was that Brendl could be the real dynamo but that Lundmark, even if as a nice two way second line center, was almost certainly going to make it.

But it all just started downhill that second year in Moose Jaw.

It was so suprising that we were so far off the mark w/ Lundmark, & Brendl.

Its funny I was thinking the same. If Lundmark, & Brendl turned out the way they should have it would have been nice and now with additions like Cally,Prucha, Hossa ( Hopefuilly he keeps it up ) and Dubs and a couple other guys well, NYR would have been looking very good up front with youth.

Lundmark, & Brendl were dissapointing supposably Martin Hav;lat was a grab and was passed on, whihc is a shame forgot which draft it was. annyway bygones are bygones and lets look to the future cause NYR got some opretty good ki=ds, im pretty excited to see;ing callahan and Dubinsky being regulars, i also see Callahan being a similar player in his second full season as to waht Parie is doing in his second year in Jersey. the kid is gonna be damn good.

Not just a Rangere thing. So were a lot teams. I remember people being very impressed by the Rangers getting Lundmark and Brendl.

The knock on Brendl proved to be true (subpar skater with little heart and little work ethic).

Still not sure what happened to Lundmark.

I'm ready to chalk it up to the fact that he simply topped out his potential in the WHL and AHL. He simply never took the next step nor did he ever work hard enough to try to take the next step.

Gotta love Callahans game tonight.

I don't know what we will do on Thursday against Philly with Shanny back, we can't take out Dubinsky, and Orr and Hollwegs toughness is needed.

But looking past that game, if Callahan can keep this up, he could turn out to have quite the impact for us.

On a side note, my father's cousin, who is a massuse (sp?), recently had Lundmark's wife as a client in LA. Found this out twelve minutes ago

Get Isbister out of there... THey played Callahan on the powerplay with Nylander and Jagr so maybe it will work.

Callahan looked tonight like a very good NHL player if age and names were completely thrown out the window. That is quite a thing...

Doc made one or two comments about how impressed he was with Cally as well. Nice to hear that from a national/opposing team announcer.

We've got a player here, ladies and gents.

So do I. This kid seems pretty fearless. It seemed like after every whistle tonight he had Orpik in his face but Callahan wouldn't back down.

Yeah, my GF made the same comment about him after watching only a few minutes of the Boston game.

His play is something we never saw from Jamie Lundmark.

I'm not sure his future is as a third liner. But he should start there next season.
So far Callahan reminds me of a poor man's Pat Verbeek.

I think he wore 24 in Hartford, but that's not taken by anyone here so I don't understand why he doesn't have it.

I might be wrong.

Agreed, it's just plain ugly. As for his play i have been exremely impressed. His wheels and willingless to shoot are something that has been sorely needed. He has not looked out of place at all and is always noticeable. His hits on malkin were great and showed he has no fear, especially when it comes to other teams "stars".

The eam has some real grit at the moment wih Callahan, Ortemeyer, Hollweg, Avery banging and grinding. If we can get healthy we have a good shot at the PO's. With all the inuries we now have quite a few home grown players -

Pock
Giradi
Dubinsky
Ortemeyer
Callahan
Hollweg
Prucha
Lundquist

Nice to see players from rececnt drafts playing at the NHL level.

Even though we didn't draft him... Hossa can be considered home grown

Tradition. They just don't hand a rookie callup an established number, they gotta earn it. I think Cally's on his way there
