Yeah Nill is saying that is our weakness so the front office must realize we need some more grit in the lineup. Holland said it after the season was over as well. They have tonnes of buzz about Callahan and how muc better he has gotten. There was so many people on this site saying he would probably never make it but now it looks very likely that he will. Not to mention he is a very good fighter pound for pound. He will most likely be able to go against everyone and do well in the league except the big heavyweights. He also seems that he won't be just a 7 minute a night enforcer, he's a Drake type that fights more and better.
OK, on topic: I think it's obvious by now that there is some feeling in the Wings front office that some grit is lacking in the current lineup. The onus is on them to address that, or not. At this point I'm not really sure which way they'll go.
I think the fact that Callahan is generating so much buzz/excitement despite being barely a speck in the prospect eye, if you'll pardon the awkward metaphor, is an indication that the fans want to see that extra grit. Seems to me that keeping that in mind would be courteous to the fans, if the Wings organization is concerned with that kind of thing. I like to think they are.
This article also kinda points out my biggest concern for this guy. I was worried about his skating but it says hes a speedy player so that concern is out the door.
Looks like we have a solid 4th liner at least on the way up who can hit, fight and play. I'm excited
