Callahan>Cleary.

 

We'll lose him to waivers.

 

Based on what?  One Clarkson like season in the AHL?

 

On second thought, Burke might claim him and sign him to an 8 year $40 mil extension.


I bought some Maple Lea Tea.  It cost a fortune and didn't come with a Cup.

A budget team with a weak bottom six and problems on the D side of the puck might be interested in him. A team like the Sens, maybe.

You guys are seriously over rating him. He's projected as a 4th line agitator, not a second line scorer.

I said he was better than Cleary, who is projected as being nowhere in the NHL without his man-crushees.

A 4th line agitator/mini-Holmstrom>absolutely nothing. Callahan brings skills that this team has lacked for a while.

That doesn't mean he'd be claimed on waivers

I agree- he has improved each season since joining the WHL and provides a role the Wings lack.

I don't think anyone is "over rating" Callahan, but I for one would be pissed if we lost him to waivers. No one is saying that he is the next big thing, just that he could be a great 4th line grinder in the mold of a Maltby. I love the kid and I hope he steals a full time spot on our crowded 4th line sometime this season...

I'd like to see the guy get a shot on the team. I don't think anyone's going to mistake him for a 2nd liner, but as has been mentioned by a few others, he could bring a different element to this team. He may not fit on anything but a 4th line in Detroit, but I think he could compliment skilled guys by being a distraction and screening the goaltender. The net presence, piano pulling guys have their place on NHL clubs, too... should he grow into that role.

He may not turn into that, but the downside is that he'd fit in as a 4th liner who brings high energy and good tempo.

 


The most popular choice among the Red Wings as to who would volunteer to play goalie – several Panthers did in their game – was Brendan Smith.
 
"He's pretty competitive and he seems to be good at everything," Justin Abdelkader said. "He'd volunteer himself."
 
Babcock was a bit more hesitant about Smith. "Yeah, yeah, just work on getting out of your zone," Babcock said
