...and that in itself a good point. Campbell found himself in a role where he was comfortable and a nr.1 D-man rather than being paid more than better and more important players at a cap-hampered Chicago team.

Florida had no-one who could munch minutes and skate like him.... well, Kulikov going forward, but he was a kid. Campbell thrived. It wasn't that Campbell didn't play well at Chicago. He just wasn't that crucial for them, and cap-concerns forced their hands - with them throwing a talented youngster in his place. I don't know if anyone sees a parallel.....
