Ryan Callahan

Forgive me if this has ever been discussed, but I was wondering some Rangers' fans thoughts on Ryan Callahan. He currently plays for Guelph in the OHL and everyone's wondering if he will return for an overage year or not. A lot of Guelph's immediate success hinges upon his return. Does anyone have any insight as to where he'll play this year? Is he AHL ready in your opinion?

I know that this is mostly PR for the rangers, but at the summerfest, i spoke with coach Renny about Callahan's future with the orginization. He told me to expect to see him at least on the Wolfpack by next year.

I expect Callahan to go back to Guelph for one more year. The Rangers will be stacked with players in Hartford. No sence on him playing third line minutes when he can get first line minutes in Guelph.

A good camp and he will earn his contract. Sounds weird right?

I don't think Callahan is signed yet so he needs a good camp. Whether we do sign him he might wind up in Guelph for one more season anyway.

but there will be alotof players looking for regular minutes in Hartford for sure.

The Rangers sure could use his creativity from the right side and if the game is going to be more open for the AHL, NHL and whoever is coaching the Wolfpack, having a solid player on the 3rd line isn't going to hurt.

I think it would be in the kids best interest to be with the Wolfpack this season and begin his journey towards the NHL. While going back to Jr.'s may help Guelph may help Guelph, I can't see how it could benefit Ryan.

He needs to take the next step.

callahan seems to me to project as a 3rd liner in the NHL anyways, i don't think starting his pro career on the third line in the AHL would kill him. he'd still get minutes and if he earns a spot on one of the top 2 lines, even better. if he has a good camp, hopefully he gets signed

well, he told me this before the lockout ended that callahan would at least make the pack in two years, and so i would assume he was reffering to 06-07

I really want Callahan and Graham signed. Those are my two huge wishes. Maybe if Staal somehow impressed then that would be just amazing but most likely wont happen.

Not sure if Guelph helps Callahan at all...

and I would think of it as somewhat a disappointment. The kid is currently 20 years old. It's usually time to move on. I actually think he'd be better off getting third and fourth line minutes in Hartford than playing another year against 15, 16 and 17 year olds.

Agree on Staal, NYR, but of course it's not impossible - just improbable. We have no way of knowing how camp will turn out, but given the current glut on defense, Staal would have to be awesome to even be considered to play 10 games before being sent back to juniors.
