I think Campbell is way overrated by a lot of people. Paying him like he's an elite player--7.2 mil. Jesus H. Christ. He is in no way, shape and form a HOF player. He is a sorry substitute for Brian Leetch. Not the way to go. Signing both him and Hossa long term not only opens up an opportunity for teams to offer Staal, Dubinsky offer sheets but pretty much means were done as far as the UFA market until some of these players start coming off the payroll. This is a team we would be stuck with come hell or high water and frankly I don't see it as a real Cup contender--not that I'm seeing next years team that way anyway. We would have no flexibility to make moves--none. We'd be waiting for other teams to cherrypick our best young players.
