Rangers announce Ryan Callahan is out 3-4 weeks with a broken thumb. #NYR recall F Darroll Powe and G Jason Missiaen, send G Cam Talbot back

Per Larry Brooks, Callahan broke his thumb blocking a John Carlson shot with just over two minutes remaining in the third period last night.
…ummmmm, wasn't this supposed to stop when Torts was fired? It's fair to wonder if Callahan must seriously consider changing his style of play if he wants to remain healthy. Not sure that's even an option because if he tones it down, I don't think he'd remain an effective player.
…and what's up with the recall of Powe? Is he seriously being looked upon to replace Cally's scoring output? I know Kreider probably needs more seasoning, but this is an extraordinary circumstance. Says a lot about the organization's opinion of him that he's not being called up.
…don't read anything into Talbot being sent down. Team just wants to get him some action during the weekend instead of him getting stale on the Rangers bench.
