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
I really hope your sage objectivity is right. My first reaction -- like others -- is that this is a reaction to bad news.

No denying the defense has been an uncoordinated mess, though half the time it's an untested prospect making the mess. But... and here's a thought... maybe the reason we've been seeing an endless stream of teenaged plugs is precisely because the front-four have sprung a leak. Yes, it's back to paranoia, but maybe we're seeing so much Beaulieu and Woywitka because we're going to see so little Markov or Subban.

I hope my fellow paranoids are wrong, but there's no other logical explanation for this deal.
