hes looked fine to me, hes blasted several goals (6) this year, has 16 points, makes a hugeeee difference for us having him back there and one of the biggest reasons we had the success that we did last season. logs big minutes, hes just stuck out there with a bad group of D and an offense that isnt that much better considering the injuries and young players playing. hes just in a bad spot, like markstrom. you could put weber back there and he'd have a bad +/- too, just like you could put anyone in net and we'd still suck, we're just too injured. im not worried about campbell at all and hes not going anywhere after 1 season and still have a ntc. him and gudbranson and most likely kulikov are all staying. everyone else can be had.
thanks, makes a lot of sense, but it would seem trading him would be trading your best player?
