@gravey94 @dicknashtyI love Scotch. Scotch, Scotch, Scotchity Scotch Scotch. - Jokes aside, I agree with you.
At the end of the day Cally's "Worth" is relative. Sather can only look at his team, and its needs and determine what value he is willing to pay to secure that for this team. If another team, such as Buffalo determines that Cally's an integral and indispensable part of what they are trying to accomplish, they may be willing to pay more of a premium to get him. At the end of the day, it just comes down to what does Cally bring to the table and how bad do we NEED him.
I do believe that there is a LOT to be said for the intangibles that he brings to our game. Remember when he was out in the beginning of the season and we were all crying about how much we missed his grit? Dare I say since Christmas this team found that grit (especially Benoit Pouliot - who at one point I would scream GIVEAWAY every time he touched the puck). Did Cally bring that to this team? Did he bring that by example? If you could really say that with certainty, they wouldn't call it an intangible.
The bottom line is that the while I love Cally, I said it back in November that I don't know if he is coming back next year. Based on the reports in the media, he almost certainly will have to be willing to take a home-town discount on this one.

@gravey94 Where the hell do you get a Starbucks Venti latte for $1.65?? I'd pay that all day! That's like getting Cally back at 5 yrs. 4 per.
Should have made the entire team do push-ups on the ice each time Fatty let one in, while he stood there eating his Donuts "1...2...3...4...I...let...rangers...score!"

My only concern is what line combinations do you throw around in
that event? I'm reluctant to split Zucc/Brass/Pouliot. That leaves:
Kreider - (Richards/Miller) - Nash
Cally - (Miller/Richards) - Hags
Zucc - Brass - Pouliot
Boyle - Moore - Carcillo

@shoot_the_goalie @dicknashty @TruBluEsp I don't disagree with you on the Kreider/Brass/Nash - they did look really good against Boston (though Nash had a hard time against Boston). I was actually responding to your first line combos. With reagrd to making space - I don't think there is really anyone on the team right now capable of making space, which is causing a lot of our troubles offensively.
4 months, 2 weeks ago on Lundqvist Out vs. Flyers; Zuccarello Possible Scratch
@TruBluEsp I have to agree with you but for this:
Kreider - Richards - Cally
Miller - Brassard - Pouliot
Personally, I think you try to find that preseason chemistry between to French-Canadians again on the third. While Miller is a natural center, I think his play as the third line winger gives that line much needed Jam (how I miss my Tortsisms) and strength on the forecheck. Let Brass and Pouliot tic tac toe around with Miller beasting his way around the net and in the corners. Same for the second line... it's too soft the way you work it out. Let Cally do the dirty work while Richards sees the ice, and Kreider.. lets hope he finds his shot ala Gabby because I'm still not convinced he's a power forward. I think he could snipe some nice feeds from Richards with Cally there to deflect. More balance to the lines there too.
