If it is this Sat or Sun, the three Ryans will most likely not be there which would be a shame.

For weeks I said the Rangers wouldn't sign Callahan and I'm happy I was wrong.

Saturday is prospects camp, the banquet would likely be that night.

I hope he's there, but if he has a game Sunday, it's unlikely. Likewise with MacDonald. I'm not sure what Milwaukee's plans with Parent are though, but he's already with them if I'm not mistaken.

Sorry, but I have higher hopes for Dubinsky than just a 3rd line center. I expect him to be this team's 2nd line center in the near future (i.e., 2007-8). For next year, however, I want him getting a full year at Hartford. (Same goes for Korpikoski.) No need to rush the kid. Maybe put him with Jessiman and see if some chemistry develops. As for Callahan, I think I'd like to see him with a bigger center, albeit one who skates fairly well. (Falardeau, perhaps.) I don't see a need to rush a lot of these guys. Maybe a guy like Greg Moore makes the Rangers next year, since he's a couple of years older than the guys coming from juniors. But, I think the Rangers are going to try to build some chemistry with these kids.

We're all happy...

SoS...it's a shame they couldn't get it done sooner (assuming that Callahan would be an asset in these playoffs and help this team).

I'm happy you were wrong too.

I know 52 goals in junior won't exactly translate to 52 goals in the NHL, but this is a guy with a lot of heart, and potential at both ends of the ice. This is the kind of guy you want to have on your team come playoff time, and I know for a fact that we're going to be thanking Slats for pulling the trigger on the deal one day.

Size, talent, speed, etc... they can only get you so far... but when it's time to dig down deep, it's the guys with big hearts that win it for you, and Ryan Callahan is a winner.

I heard he could have been a 2ed round pick if not for his size. he was small when he was drafted, he is alot bigger now.

on Rangers site it says 5'11 185 http://www.newyorkrangers.com/team/p...p?playerid=314 maybe he is still growing maybe he will be about 6'0 195 when he makes the NHL.

Im thinking Dawes - Dubi - Cally

Dubi is a great playmaker so he can set up Dawes and Callahan who both have great shots, and Callahan loves to go to the net. All three of them use the body as well. Dawes, Dubi and Cally are also great defensively. That line could rack up some serious points at the AHL level.

Amonte was the same way when we drafted him, he grew a little bit and hit 6'0 185 when he was a rookie.

I like that line even better, Fly. You make some good points as the 3 of them are fast, gritty, and Dubinsky as he is a playmaker could set up the two finishers. Gotta have good balance on a line like that, a playmaker, Dubinsky, a scorer, Dawes, and a grinder, Callahan, would make it work. The great part about it is that Callahan is not a straight up grinder, he's got a lot of scoring skill, and these guys could do quite a bit defensively as all 3 have proven in the past at the World Juniors.
