Campbell, for sure.

Are people seriously using "better hitter" as a reason to pick Phaneuf over Campbell? Oh you mean, when he actually hits someone and doesn't throw himself out of position? "Harder shot"? Oh you mean when he actually can hit the net and it isn't stopped by that goalie person?

Campbell is a better skater, a better passer, reads plays better, is better defensively and offensively than Phaneuf. That's not to say that Phaneuf isn't a great defenseman in his own right... but Campbell is just smarter and has more tools in his toolbox. I don't think too many people actually payed attention to Campbell other than his contract.
