Why's everybody so hung up on CHRIS CAMPOLI?!
What makes you think NOBODY wanted him?
He was only a UFA in August after his arbitration hearing, not July 1st, so by then a lot of teams were either "capped out" or spent to their budget or had signed others to fill holes. If he was a UFA from July 1st he would have probably ended up getting a 2-3 year deal at 2-3 mil/year.
Not saying he is a star, but he is a solid guy that can definitely be an upgrade over playing rookies as #3-4 d-men. He solid across the board, has no glaring weaknesses and his skating is above average.
