You fight with the Army you have or can have, not the one you want. If you can point out an NHL ready defender who is a free agent that is at least as talented as Campoli, but also has size and grit in excess of him, then do let everyone know.
No one will argue that Chris Pronger wouldn't have been a better singing, but the world doesn't work that way.
Scott Hannan was available for ages and signed for less.
