Everything else in your post is true enough to reject the deal but this is completely misleading. Cammalleri has had injury problems but even then Umberger isn't routinely outscoring him. Since Umberger arrived in Columbus and become a consistent forward he has 94 goals in 331 games. Cammalleri has 104 in 284. It's pretty obvious who the better finisher is. That's alright though, just bring up their contracts and it's not so obvious who Columbus would pick if given a 1 for 1 choice.
