Campbell was coming off equally poor season as Martin. A big difference is that he had two more years in his contract and at over 2 million per year more. Campbell was the highest paid D-man in the league at that point! Also you had replaced your GM since signing that contract. Totally different situations. If you had Campbell at 5.5 million per for 3 years, you could have gotten a good return for him.
