Ryan Callahan scored both Tampa Bay markers in Thursday's 3-2 shootout win over the Islanders.

Ryan Callahan has fit in nicely for the Tampa bay Lightning since being acquired from the Rangers.

"With our team, that was probably a little bit of an element we were missing," said coach Jon Cooper. "He just brings a different dynamic to our team. And that kid knows how to play the game below the dots and we just have not had a whole lot of those players wheel through our organization. So he's been a great fit for us. He's one of those guys you never have to worry about in the locker room, you know what you are getting and it's 100-percent effort. You can't have enough of those guys." Callahan has also contributing on the scoreboard with two goals and three assists in nine games.

Ryan Callahan recorded his first goal with the Lightning in Thursday's win over Florida.

Ryan Callahan was credited with eight hits and an assist in Tampa Bay's shootout loss against Phoenix on Monday night.

He has logged over 21 minutes of ice time in his past two appearances with the Lightning and he's accounted for two helpers during that time. Callahan is capable of contributing to several categories, especially hits and blocks, but he shouldn't be expected to go on a scoring tear with the Bolts for the remainder of the year.
Mar 11 - 9:24 AM

Ryan Callahan recorded his first point with the Tampa Bay Lightning on Saturday.

Callahan was acquired as part of the Martin St. Louis trade. He played on a line with Valtteri Filppula and Ondrej Palat. Short of being put on a line with Steve Stamkos - and we wouldn't count on that happening - we wouldn't expect too much from Callahan going forward from an offensive perspective.
Mar 9 - 11:34 AM

Ryan Callahan skated with Valtteri Filppula and Nikita Kucherov in his Tampa Bay debut in Thursday's loss to Buffalo.

He notched four shots and four hits in 16:33 of ice time. Callahan has one assist in his last six games.
Mar 7 - 8:53 AM

Tampa Bay GM Steve Yzerman likes what Ryan Callahan brings to the table.

"He fills a need for us in that he's not replacing Marty St. Louis, but he plays in all situations," Yzerman said after acquiring Callahan as part of the Martin St. Louis trade. "He kills penalties, he's a great shot blocker, probably most well known for penalty killing, his defensive ability, shot-blocking ability. He's very good in front of the net on the power play. He's an all-around solid player who really competes." Yzerman added that he intends to re-sign Callahan, who can become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the year.
Mar 6 - 11:20 AM

Ryan Callahan has been dealt to the Tampa Bay Lightning in a package for Martin St. Louis.

The Lightning also acquired a first-round pick in 2015 and a second-round pick in 2014 in the trade. Callahan is eligible to be an unrestricted free agent this summer and it's unclear right now if the Lightning will retain him. The former Rangers captain has recorded 11 goals and 25 points in 45 games.
Mar 5 - 11:30 AM

Larry Brooks of the New York Post reports that the Rangers now appear willing to go to six years on a contract with captain Ryan Callahan.

Brooks says the deal would be worth $36 million. Callahan is reportedly looking for a seven-year contract worth around $7 million per season. The Rangers are said to be set on dealing their captain at the deadline if an agreement isn't reached with him by then. Callahan has 11 goals and 24 points in 44 games this year.
Mar 2 - 12:00 AM

Alain Vigneault is "very confident" that Ryan Callahan will re-sign with the Rangers.

In speaking to the media prior to the Rangers' loss to the Flyers, Vigneault was upbeat about Callahan's chances of staying with the team. "Well, I’m very confident that the other half will get done, also," Vigneault said. ... "Ryan’s the captain of this team. You guys all know what he brings to the table and what he brings to this team on a daily basis, so Dan (Girardi) got done, and I always said I’ve been optimistic and positive, and I’m positive and optimistic that this is going to get done – I hope." News reports have indicated that if the Rangers can't come to an agreement with Callahan before the 3p.m. ET March 5 deadline, general manager Glen Sather will trade him.
Mar 1 - 9:14 PM

Ryan Callahan's agent Steve Bartlett said he's still in negotiations with the New York Rangers.

It was recently reported that there is a "99%" chance that Callahan will be traded and with every day that passes, it becomes increasingly likely that the two sides won't be able to agree on a contract extension. The Rangers inked Daniel Girardi to a six-year, $33 million deal on Friday and while Bartlett said that doesn't impact his client in any way, it mean that the Rangers will be more squarely focused on Callahan.

Ryan Callahan doesn't want to talk about the trade speculation surrounding him.

This followed a report that there is a "99%" chance that Callahan will be traded before the March 5 deadline. Callahan doesn't have a no-trade clause, so this matter is largely out of his hands, unless he wants to try lowering his contract demands in an effort to bridge the gap with the Rangers. That being said, Callahan is reportedly seeking as much as $49 million over seven years while the Rangers countered with $30 million over five. If those numbers are accurate, then it would be very difficult for the gap to be bridged before the deadline arrives.

There's reportedly a "99%" chance that Ryan Callahan will be traded.

The Rangers and Callahan appear to be at an impasse, but the X-factor should be whether or not there's a team out there willing to work something out with New York. There's no question that Callahan has considerable trade value, but the Rangers reportedly reached out to Tampa Bay hoping to get Martin St. Louis in exchange for Callahan. That both suggests that the Rangers' expectations are high and perhaps even that they're not eager to trade Callahan for picks and/or prospects, which is one most teams after a rental would be offering.
