IMO, the Campoli move is an indictment on guys like Woywitka, Mitera...maybe even Weber.

Campoli is just a depth dman, he's not here to replace anyone who could play in the top 4.

Have you guys been watching the Habs defense this preseason? They look putrid lol
With Markov out the team would only have Subban who can work the PP on D, and to a lesser extent Spacek. If the Habs were looking for depth at that position, given the guys we already have on our roster with a healthy Markov, Campoli would be way down my list of players to sign.

Elliotte Friedman is also reporting this deal came together very quickly, add that to the fact that Campoli got more than compensated for the mediocre season he had last year and it seems like the Habs are reacting to something rather than being proactive.
