    Great signing, glad he didn't go to arbitration... sign Dubinski, and the pieces of the puzzle are fitting together, let Zherdev go... but with Lishin in, what the hell is Slats thinking... Lishin is another Zherdev in training, another high potential offensive hockey player with no heart. Thank God for calli, he's all heart!

    Yes, he could potentially be another zherdev in training, but he will come at a cheaper price, and that is what I think sather is really trying to do here. He is trying to make it so zherdev has nowhere else to go except in a trade, or just walk away from whatever the arbitraitor decides, leaving him an UFA. Since Lisin is a RFA, and if it does go to arbitraition, he should get something around he 1.25-1.75 mil range, unlike zherdev who will at least make 3.25 and most likely somewhere near the 4 mil range. Esentially sather could be savin the whole zherdev contract as korp was around the 1 mil range anyway, freeing up at least 3.25 mil in cap space for other players like dubi (about the same contract as cali, 2 mil per) and allows gilroy's 1.75 potential hit to be minor. Sather could be replacing Zherdev, holding onto dubi, and allowing gilroy to play, and being a little more finacially flexable, for just an extra 2 mil, a 3 for 1 deal in the end. Remember we do need to have 23 skaters on the team.

    Callahan is a stud. Every young hockey player should look at his example of the right way to play (even if sometimes I get pissed at him for fighting witha visor on). He gives his all on every shift. Teams need to learn you do not win with enigmatic offensively talented guys who play without heart. In the home stretch and playoffs, guys like that disappear. You win with guys willing to leave it all out there.

    Callahan Signing

    There is wide consensus on the value of this signing. Callahan very well deserves consideration for being the captain this year; he exemplifies leadership on the ice with every shift, and is the most consistent and dependable player on the team with the possible exception of The King. Congrats to Cally!

    Two years is a short time. I would have figured the Rangers would have tried to lock him up longer. You have to figure the economy will be better in 2 yrs thus allowing him to sign a much larger contract because he will still be really young. He will also be a UFA. If he continues to improve he will cash in handsomely in 2 yrs.
