Cally is scoring elite goals

Categorizing goals isn't the easiest but if you classify the average checking line goal is blue collar and the average Malkin, Stamkos goal is white goal this season Cally is scoring a ton of goal scorers goals. Goals that the average NHL wouldn't put in. He is just so improved in all areas. Hard not to be really proud of him.

I'd say most of his goals are bad angle thrown pucks or "crash the net" style goals, but he does have a pretty mean shot.

He's not an elite goalscorer by any measure. He is however an elite captain. He never takes a shift off, never cheats on the backcheck, blocks shots, forechecks like a freckin hero. There are very few players in this league that i'd rather have than Ryan Callahan.

Most of his goals are pretty ugly, but they count too.

Funny, i just watched all of his goals from this season, and there are alot of wow moments in there. A few sniper shots, a few diving goals, a few dekes, and then there are his assists.

All season long he's had the confidence to try new things, and it's paying off.

The biggest thing about Cally and Richards goals this season is when they score them. Both of these players are scoring goals when we really need them. They are scoring goals that are winning us games.

Dont they have about 8 GWG each or something?

What does this even mean?

"Junk" goals count as much as "highlight" goals.

There's no such things as "elite" goals.

Ask someone who watches Stamkos on a regular basis how most of his goals are scored. Going to the net and picking up "junk" goals. You think he scored 50 "snipe" goals?

He does have some talent. He has scored at every level he's played at his entire life. That being said "elite" is pushing it, but he is a natural goal scorer to some degree, for sure.

Does the game winning shoot-out goal count as a goal?

One of the smartest thing this organization has done in recent memory is make him captain. Hes everything you'd want in one. I would rather have him in a locker room giving us the pre game speech than an elite scoring player. Ex.- Crosby,OV, more or less Sedin,etc...

Really pulling for him to hit 30 goals, but am concerned about two things.

One- his contract is up UFA style after 2 more years.

Two- A guy named Chris Drury had a very similar career line and was useless by age 31.

What if Callahan Drurys? It is a scary thought.

He's always had a good shot, but his release is mediocre. Makes it hard for him to score "pretty" goals off the rush or under tight coverage.

There are so many things wrong with this post, I don't even know where to begin?

You really think a captain is going to ditch his team in the midst of being in the run of being perennial cup contenders? The team could even have won a Cup by then.

Think about that. The dude would be at god status in NYC and on the way to his number hanging to the rafters of MADISON SQUARE GARDEN.

Players want to come to NY, to play for an O-6 franchise. That means something.

You're really worried about the captain of all people pulling strings to try and price himself out.

From the organizations perspective, You're really worried about the Rangers low-balling him? Look at some of the retarted contracts we've handed out over the past few seasons. The term low-ball seemingly doesn't exist in NYR vocabulary.

Tortorella would never let this happen. He's got a major hard-on for Callahan. He's calling the shots these days. When the time comes he will be rewarded generously.

RE Drury: One could argue the way his body broke down is NOT the norm. Yes he played reckless as does Callahan, however, even though I can't think of any at the moment, there are players out there who have played a physical game and can continue to be effective into their mid-30s

I'm sorry, I should have been clearer with my post.

I wasn't suggesting he'd leave. Although Drury was a captain and left a competitive Sabres team.

What I was suggesting is that he'd land a very large contract with the Rangers, and then have his performance break down very quickly.

I don't see Cally obtaining "Dreary" status, ever.

Yup. This is exactly how I feel about Callahan. His body will eventually get tired of the wear and tear playing physical hockey and he'll become a slower, less aggressive player.

God this board is even worse off then I thought.

A thread dedicated to our captain who is about to hit 30 goals and people have to find a potential negative that we are years away from encountering.

Has being a Rangers fan really ****** with your guys heads that badly?

If by elite goals you mean those beastly Malkin-esque moves, then no.
If by elite goals you mean scoring timely, momentum changing/game winners, then yes.

If Callahan Drurys by 33, it'll still be a MONSTER of a 4th round draft pick, and over half a decade of brilliant captaincy.

I desperately want to see this man raise the cup.

Drury was useless at 7.5 million and after a degenerative knee condition.

I don't see Cally making that much ever (hopefully), and so far there's no conditions like that to worry about.

Even then, Callahan is a homegrown captain and to expect him to still be playing like this by age 33, he'd essentially be Shane Doan-lite. I just hope the decline isn't Drury-esque, and he can still put up 40~ points on the 3rd line while bringing top PKing skills for NOT-7.5 million dollars.

Love the Captain.

Although it's not so much of an issue now, it may become a legitimate concern down the road. Eerily enough, both Callahan and Drury suffered sprained knee injuries somewhat early in their careers, and it was the first major injury of their NHL career for both of them. I hope Cally doesn't follow the same path as Drury regarding injuries, but it wouldn't surprise me if his body is worn down by the time he's in his early 30s.

By elite I mean clever shots - excellent wrister placement (all those top shelf bad angles in the opening of the season). Some excellent dekes and moves. He is scoring more then junk goals this year.

this season many of his goals have been highlight reel material.

Like I've said before, he's known as a hard worker but he has the talent of a legit top 6 star.

Prust and Boyle bust ass out there too, they're not scoring in the 20's consistently and threatening 30. Callahan's good.
