Callahan's timeline

At the moment, the New York Rangers have just six players on the roster signed beyond the upcoming season. Big names like Henrik Lundqvist, Ryan Callahan and Dan Girardi can become unrestricted fee agents next summer, and a number of other key contributors will be looking for new deals as well. Mix in the fact that the club will have Alain Vigneault taking over behind the bench, and it's easy to see why the 2013-14 campaign could be a pivotal one for the structure of this group going forward.
