I do remember his time with Montreal, particularly in 2010 when they went on their Cinderella playoff run – I just wish I could remember who eliminated them
– and Cammalleri was nearly unstoppable in the first two series.
I'm just thinking that if he could tap into that scoring touch again, he might be the shoot-first complement to Giroux and Hartnell. And he wouldn't cost as much to land as Iginla or Bouwmeester.
I'm lukewarm to this idea, particularly as Holmgren needs another $6 million contract like a hole in the head, but I'm just stoking the conversational fire.
I have no clue what it would cost the flyers but I will say that his reglar seasons are decent but he is a playoff super hero. He just seems to have a 2nd gear once April starts.......
