The man who broke the story first, Boomer Esiason joined Booger and Rich to talk about what went on behind the scenes to make the Marty St. Louis Ryan Callahan trade happen.
Sources told Esiason that Marty was on the trade block and that the Rangers were in play to acquire him.
Esiason said that Tampa Bay got a haul. Callahan is a heart and souler and will be great as the Lightning battle for a playoff spot. Esiason said Callahan will do everything asked of him. He plays on the power play, blocks shots and is a talented player. One drawback Esiason said is that Callahan does get injured because he play so tough, but he tends to come back quickly off of injury because of that same toughness.
