The NHL trade deadline has come and gone. The true winners and losers will be determined over the course of the remainder of the regular season, the Stanley Cup playoffs and of course the future with the draft picks and prospects that were moved. But until then, here’s one hockey scribe’s immediate but hopefully calculated reaction to arguably the two biggest of the 20 trades involving 38 players made Tuesday prior to the 3 PM ET deadline.

For much of the last few weeks, New York Rangers defenseman and soon to be unrestricted free agent Dan Girardi has been a constant in the increasing NHL trade rumors circuit. But now according to Larry Brooks of the New York Post and Pierre Lebrun of ESPN.com and TSN his teammate and captain Ryan Callahan – who is also an unrestricted free agent on July 1 – is being shopped as well. Both Brooks and Lebrun reported that contract talks for both Girardi and the Rangers’ heart and soul forward Callahan have hit a wall and Rangers general manager Glen Sather is fielding offers for both so they don’t end up leaving the Rangers with nothing if and they walk via free agency.

According to Brooks, Callahan is seeking a seven-year deal worth $42 million. That may sound like a bit much for a player who has never cracked the 30-goal plateau but as Jim Matheson of the Edmonton Journal pointed out on Twitter:

“If Ryan Callahan looking for 7yr. $42 mil, that’s ballpark to fellow capt Dustin Brown‘s $5.875 cap hit, 8 yrs. Same players aren’t they?”
