Surprise Surprise...

Callahan is leading the league with 91 hits. Girardi tops the league with 68 stinging blocked shots.

Heart and soul right there. Keep it up fellas!

Pay no attention to the fact that the Rangers statistician is, shall we say, enthusiastic. This does not take away from the games being played by Callahan and Girardi, but the stats are a tad ridiculous and have been for a while.

If the league is now in charge of these stats, I take back what I have just written, but I don't know that to be the case.

Say what you will about the statisticians, Callahan really hits anything that moves. I don't think it's an error that he's right up there.
Does anyone have a home-away breakdown on hits and blocked shots? That might be a better way of gauging this.

I just know that I have Cally for my fantasy team and our league counts hits. One period I purposefully wanted to see how accurate the stats were, I counted 6 Callahan hits in the 1st period of the game (2 monsters on one shift), meanwhile he was credited with 0 hits for the 1st period.

Hits & blocked shots have always been hit or miss (no pun intended) with the statisticians IMO

Shots on goal are determined by the arena's stat guy as well. Does that mean we shouldn't pay attention to that stat too?

even if the exact # of the hits is off...who cares?

the moral of the story is that callahan is a bad ass mother ****er and hits everything that moves

i could care less if hes credited with 91 but its really 87

he's an animal

If Girardi keeps on playing like this he can be a Norris Trophy candidate by the end of the year!

He leads the NHL in blocked shots, physical shut down defender, good plus/minus and is producing a good amount of points.

Of course.. this is not going to happen as there is tons of games left in the season... but I just wanted to give major kudos to Girardi right now,

I was just going to say this. The Rangers statistician tends to be a bit liberal compared to other statisticians around the league. Still impressive for Callahan and Girardi nonetheless, but I can't help but think that their stats may be a bit inflated.

Right now, the Rangers have 430 hits at home and 226 on the road. Yes, they have played 2 less games on the road, but that doesn't account for such a large discrepancy. Last season, the same thing happened. 1293 hits at home, 1037 on the road. Are the Rangers really so much more aggressive at home to account for a 256 hit differential? I don't think so.

Maybe that's why they suck at home. They get way too aggressive forcing themselves out of position and they just can't get a grip on things after that. I dunno, just a thought... Don't think it's all true... Just saying.

I remember the 9 guys out of the 1300 that weren't burying Girardi after that game.

I think hits/blocks are a little more subjective.

Slightly inflated or not, both of these pass the logic test for those who watch the games: Callahan hits anything near him, and Girardi has been like a magnet with shots and passes he's blocking/deflecting/intercepting

Chosen, you are a classic cynic brother.

That's a nod in your direction not a slap.

The buckets of cold water you deliver often bring a grin to my face.

Callahan, by the way has more guts than a slaughter house.

Ryan Callahan Stat Splits
Hits - 91
home - 61
Away - 30
http://sports.yahoo.com/nhl/players/...I76p9FA.NivLYF

Dan Girardi
Blks - 68
Home - 36
Away - 32

http://sports.yahoo.com/nhl/players/...I76p9FA.NivLYF

I guess blocks are a lot less subjective.

Home Blocked Shots per game: ~17
Road Blocked Shots per game: ~18

Home Hits per game: ~36
Road Hits per game: ~23

Unless this is a league wide conspiracy, the blocked shots stat is 100% legit. The Ranger game with the most blocked shots this season came on the road.

You can make an argument against hits I guess. You figure teams are more physical at home though, so who knows. Callahan certainly seems to throw a hit on almost every one of his shifts.

They had Callahan chalked up for a monster 11 hits last night. That was more than the guys who played on my fantasy squad had combined.

I tried trading for him in this league, but the ******* won't give him up.

Dan Girardi has impressed more than anyone else on the team from last year until now. Last year I was saying we should just dump him...I now take that back completely. He is extremely solid back there, and I love how willing he is to do the dirty business.

I've been saying it for a while now but we suddenly have a team that is very likable, and I'm really liking the toughness, something we haven't had in years.

If Girardi played on a canadian team he would get Norris votes.

I don't think Girardi will be a Norris candidate, but I think he will continue to be a defenseman in the...dare I say...Michal Roszival mold. Great all around game without really excelling at one over the other. If he can keep it up, Girardi needs to be a permanent fixture on our top 4.

Knowing how many shots Danny blocks makes this stat even more impressive--he hasn't missed a single game in four years.

Good point.. For all the blocked shots and physical play it is amazing that Girardi has not missed a game in 4 years.. wow..
