See, this is what I don't like. You, along with most other non-Stars fans on here (I know you are one, though), don't ever watch Campbell, you just look at the stats. His stats are terrible. But look at the systems he was playing under. Pretty much pure offense, run and gun. Not even the most elite goalies can put up great numbers with a system like that. Look at Fleury, for example.

If you actually get out and watch him, he's something special. Compare his AHL stats to Bachman and Besko (small stint, though) and they're actually great. I can't wait to see him under a better system, one that actually plays defense, next season just to prove all of those haters wrong. Every coach or player he's played under/with has said he's a tremendous goalie and is often the reason they're even in the game. He's still got franchise potential, and he's been living up it so far.
