Do we seriously not think that had a lot to do with Campbell's puck rushing and moving abilities? And you also clearly never watched the Sabres if you think Lydman (who WILL eventually get drafted in this thing) and Tallinder wouldn't have cracked other teams' rosters, let alone most other teams top 4s.
I do know the impact he had. The highest any of those teams placed on the PP was 9th, and Campbell was always tops in PP TOI/G for them on D. They relied a lot on their forwards to score at even strength. Obviously, Campbell's speed and passing ability likely helped them a lot, but in an all time sense, does that make up for his deficiencies in his own zone and his lack of physicality? I don't think so. Campbell should be a specialist on a bottom pairing.. not a defenseman in the top-4.
