I honestly wanna see Campbell succeed even more just to shut everyone up. People don't like the pick, and I have a feeling that even if Fowler and Gormley weren't there, they still wouldn't like it.

As for him being on schedule, I really couldn't care less. Lehtonen still has more than a few good years ahead of him, and I think getting the most out of both goalies is the best thing to do right now. If Campbell's ready, though, you've gotta go with him, and it seems pretty clear that the organization knows that as well. But there's absolutely no need to rush him.

I'm starting to think management has a preference for players with a later birthday or that can come to the AHL whenever, as they get a lot more say in their development. It seems like we've had several players in the last few drafts go that route, and it's been a common theme since GMJN showed up. Maybe it's nothing, but it wouldn't surprise me if he's targeting players like that.
