If you REALLY think Seabs played better than Brian Campbell then you are off your rocker. He basically was consistenly bad to mediocre all season, while Keith had more ups and downs. Once Hammer got through his first quarter-third season's worth of futility he was ALSO better by a wide margin.
Campbell was easily the MVP of our defensemen last year. It's not even up for debate. It's amazing how blinded some are by a spike in offensive numbers, when virtually all of said numbers were a result of PP1 time increase. Seabs offensive numbers at ES were consistent with those he's posted over the last couple of years. This "offensive explosion" stuff going around is just a myth based solely off overall numbers.
