Debatable but I know where you are coming from. The Hawks were also a different team once Campbell came back.

Different climate considering the Hawks basic core is still relatively young. You only need to add pieces to this team and thats the only way this team can be built.

BUT, with Luongo you finally have a goaltender who can win a game by himself. You dont have that luxury with Crawford.
