Jay Adams at the Cave Magazine takes a look at why Ryan Callahan is the only captain of a major sporting team in New York to not generate any media buzz...

"And that's what makes Ryan Callahan's case so peculiar. He possesses all the characteristics an NHL general manager could want. He plays in the media-hotbed of New York City. He's the captain of the best team in the Eastern Conference. Yet, for some odd reason, he simply fails to generate any significant media attention.

Because of this, the relative anonymity of Ryan Callahan might be the most compelling NHL story we've never read about."

...that's what happens when New York Sports radio refuses to talk hockey and the New York newspapers would rather put high school sports on the back page than the Rangers.

...Lundqvist is always given credit as being the player who makes the Rangers run. No offense to Hank, but that distinction goes to Mr. Callahan.
