A bit too harsh there... he was perfectly serviceable as a #6 (not that I wouldn't prefer Leddy there instead with Campoli as #5).
I really didn't like hendry. He was below average-average in the d zone and bad-below average offensively. Given what I saw from campoli in his time as a hawk, it makes me wish we could move campbell even more. I think he could step into campbell's role pretty effectively at a fraction of the cost.
Hendry for real cheap as our #7/extra forward wouldn't be terrible
Would allow us to use more $$$ to shore up our depth
This. You get Hendry for 500K, sign Rupp for 4th line (who can move to C if injuries, as can Sharp), then you go with a 21 man roster. Opens up 500-600K to add to other positions of need where it will make more of a difference than having another guy in the press box. Hawks have many prospects up front and on D who are capable of coming up and playing a few games if someone gets hurt. No need for a deep NHL roster.
