Comparing Ryan Callahan To David Clarkson

from Fluto Shinzawa of the Boston Globe, They are both right wings. They were leaders for New York-area teams. They play rugged, in-your-face games. They can score goals on the power play and in even-strength situations. Ryan Callahan could become the next David Clarkson. And that’s not necessarily a good thing. Clarkson was never drafted. But after signing with the Devils...
