Brian Campbell is one of my favourite hockey players and has been since he was an Ottawa 67. And Claude Julien is certainly a very accomplished coach.

But I wonder if they fit well together. Julien has had success in the NHL by building a rock-solid defence that keeps opposing teams to the outside, with Zdeno Chara as the cornerstone. Campbell is as far as you can get from Chara in his playing style, and has generally played for teams that stress puck possession over defensive structure.

The last time Claude Julien coached a team with a midget named Brian as the #1 defenceman, he was fired right before the playoffs started. Is Claude Julien still coaching this team, or has Mike Farkas fired him and taken over? The people want to know!
