That's another thing. Brown plays with Doughty, Johnson, and Kopitar. Callahan plays with....Scott Gomez and Brandon Dubinsky.

Because he is a 2nd 3rd liner..... he had a career game today and now he's a 1st liner?

and Yes Cally has many of those qualities. I'd say hes a bit more fragile and a bit less of an offensive skill.... despite those stats
Fragile? Come on now. let's see you take a slapshot by (Kris Letang?) on a lightly padded wrist and be lucky enough not to collapse and cry.

He's a bit less offensively talented, but he's also better defensively and argubaly one of the best penalty killing forwards in the league. We're lucky we have a 2nd liner, who reached 20 goals after missing a significant amount of time, who's also captain material, who's ALSO incredible defensively and a top PKer. That's an incredibly well-rounded player. I think he was on pace for a 60 point season before the injury- that's a player that OOZES everything I love about hockey.

...No.

How about the fact that Brown spends, and has spent a fair amount of his career playing with Anze Kopitar, as well as two of the better offensive defensemen in the league, while Callahan has spent his career playing with second year third line centers like Artem Anisimov, or with Scott Gomez, who leads the league in "most offensive zone opportunities wasted by making a horrible pass, coughing up the puck, or putting the puck gently into the goaltender's chest protector." He's also often had to do this on the first line, despite the fact that, like you said, he's not really a first line player.

Dubinsky, Callahan, and Anisimov could be one of the best 2nd lines in hockey for years to come. Imagine if they stayed together for 3,4,5 years. Even more?

His last 2 seasons he has played 77 and 81 games. The year before he was sent down to Hartford, when has he missed a lot of time due to injury?

I definitely wouldn't go that far. I can see the comparison as the "intangible" guys, but Jeter is a hell of alot more tangible than he's given credit for. He's gonna finish with somewhere between 3,500-3,800 hits, and he's a no doubt hall of famer, without the rings, without the intangibles, and just on stats alone.

I'm hoping Derek Stepan becomes the Rangers' Derek Jeter.

And then we could've tanked the year Rick Nash was drafted.

Hardest working team in the league right there? I think so.
