Diaz doesn't look NHL ready, but he's already shown more offensive upside in the NHL than Weber has. He's game, too.

We are not missing Hamrlik, we are missing a 4 years younger Hamrlik.

Agreed. Most important Defenseman on the lineup.

I'm going to assume this means Markov is ****ed.

Already assumed wrong. McKenzie, Gauthier(our GM) and Freidman have already rejected the notion that Markov will miss any significant time.

Also, in regards to the signing...very few bad thinsg are actually said about Campoli outside our fan base, which ironically, is the fan base that probably has seen him play the least out of all the others telling us he's quite a good bottom pairing player.

I guess we're missing a 10 years younger Gill as well....Hamrlike, at his age, without Markov and the question marks for our young D's, will be sorely missed. No matter how you look at it.

Campoli for 1,7mil/year >>>>>>>>>>>>>>> eventually giving up a 2nd Rnd Draft Pick.
Campoli = more options on D, more depth


Injured Markov or setback (as usual):
Yemelin - PK Subban
Campoli - Gorges
Gill - Weber*
Spacek
*Weber as forward?



With Markov (it's a miracle...he's healthy/playing and not just collecting paychecks):
Markov - Yemelin
Campoli - Subban
Gill - Gorges
Spacek
Weber as forward?

I'm looking at it like this... we have Gill and Spacek who slow as ****. Add Hammer into the mix and half your D corp can be out skated by a pylon. Campoli may be a little bit worse defensively, but he played 19 minutes a game last season... he is a legit bottom pairing Defenseman who can prolly fill in the top 4 as many Chicago blackhawks fans have said.

Firstly, I don't hate the signing. I remember Campoli well when he was with Ottawa and thought he had alot of offensive skill for a D and was generally impressed. Unless he has regressed big time, I like him. I just think this signing is due to the reality that Markov is going to miss some serious time...

He does have a big shot from the left side though, which means we could see him next to Markov on the PP when(if) Andrei returns. Makes me think thought then that Spacek finishes the year in the pressbox....

He's a cheaper option than Wisniewski.

Because he's nowhere near as tough, and has far less production. That said, you can't hate on a 1 year deal like this....

Spacek was atrocious tonight, he was in my opinion our worst defenseman (if not player) on the ice. And that's saying a lot because several players are very young or just outright don't belong.

Sad thing is, I can't think of a game he's looked decent yet. Sigh.

Oh, Wisniewski is certainly more proven, but for his role in the team, they are essentially similar. And as you say, at this price, can't really argue.

Simple. Markov's injured and they decided that Diaz/Beaulieu are not ready to replace him and Spacek/Weber are just awful. When Markov comes back, both should be in the stands.

I still haven't seen a legitamate source saying that the "reality" of the Markov situation is that he is going to miss "serious" time at the start of the season. Honestly, did I miss something? All i can find is credible sources saying that he should be ready near the beginning of the season... But hey, lets ignore them and speculate.

I don't think Wis was ever an option at 5.5m over 6 years... I don't see why people are still hung up over him with that contract.

I guess he'll be in the new roster update. I'll wait for it to come out before starting my franchise.
