When Callahan scored, there was a certain song played.. Anyone know what it was?

I'm pretty sure it was not the oh oh oh oh oh oh ohhhh song like most of the other people.

What's that? Led Zeppelin's D'yer Mak'er?? "...you don't have to go oh..." pretty appropriate

If it's anything like having an enlarged photo on the side of the building, it means he's outta here

We've already totally won the Callahan-St. Louis trade , BUT I'm wondering now more than ever if it wouldn't be wise for Yzerman to be conservative in his offer to Callahan. In other words, get him at a price that makes sense for our long-term salary structure or let him walk away knowing that we would keep our 2015 second-rounder (thereby keeping our boatload of assets and also twisting the knife a little further into the Rangers).

I know there's not a lot for this thread to accomplish until we see the terms of an actual offer, but I'm still fascinated by this situation. Callahan looked phenomenal in his regular-season tryout with the Bolts but didn't make a big impact in the playoffs (not that I'm giving him one ounce of blame for an entire team letdown). But you can't deny that the postseason is where a tough, physical leader like Callahan was supposed to really pay off, and instead I am still left wondering if he's worth big money or if any old (preferably not old) gritty third-line guy could fill that role in future Tampa Bay postseason runs.

Knowing that our franchise priority should be more focused on a dramatic blueline makeover (think 2 new top-4 dmen), I'm leaning back to Yzerman offering Callahan four years @ $5M. It's not the raise or term Cally is looking for, but I'm confident it would be a very competitive offer and still make the Lightning a viable option even if he chose free agency. Although I'm not sure if he chose to be a UFA and then signed with us if we would still owe that 2nd-rounder to New York. Anyone?

Exactly how I feel.

I think they wrote the deal so all that matters is that he plays for us for them to get the pick (which means no sign and trade shenanigans either) Not sure.

I understand people are disappointed in Calahan's playoff stats, however the thought that he was invisible or wasn't a leader is a false narrative IMO. He was consistently doing exactly what Calahan does...hit, camp in front of the net, and play PK. I saw at least one occasion where he remained on the ice after a period to "talk" to the officials (basically plead why a call should or shouldn't have been made). My point is, sure he didn't put up the points but it was an extremely small sample size and he wasn't the "non-factor" I have seen many refer to him as. He just didn't factor on the score sheet.

Everything is relative but for me I'd be ok with a 6/$30M type of deal. The real kicker for me is whether he asks for and/or gets a NMC/NTC. That is where Yzerman's real dilemma will kick in

Wonder if there is language stating we can't trade his rights?

Sign and trade only applies if someone is willing to go 8 years for Calahan which I highly doubt

Pretty sure that is illegal under the terms of the CBA. If I'm understanding it correctly if we trade his rights and that team signs him then they forfeit their 2nd rounder to the Rangers so that would hurt what we could get for his rights if a deal can't be reached.
