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.
Agreed...but I don't see the tie into Markov.

Nothing has changed in terms of Markov's return, there was never a set date for him to return and the healing process for a 2nd ACL surgery is 12 months, which puts him right on track.

I think this might be related to another roster move or just PG hedging his bets...but i'd bet on the former.
