Yeah, how about no.

Don't make stuff up when you don't have sources.

The Blackhawks, aka the best team in the league, wanted him. They just didn't want him at $2.5M, which is understandable. Campoli, from what was said on radio shows and the such, kept looking to get what he was awarded in arbitration. When he couldn't get it, he settled for 750K less.

I'd wager more teams would have been interested as well if the Blackhawks were. I think that Montreal just probably made the best offer when he signed because of the whole Markov situation.
Must be awesome if not a single team would offer him the whopping 2.5m he was awarded in arbitration. I don't need sources, years of seeing him play is enough, he's not very good. Chicago didn't want him too bad, did they?

Sources for what? That he sucks or that he wasn't signed until Sept 24th?

Him and spacek will turn the habs around, I know , that and Weber will be a top 4 dman, lol. Campoli sucks, this isn't anything new.

If this is true, I would dump him for a 6th rounder like they said or package him with something else and try to get a earlier pick. It is obvious he isn't in our long term plans, and would open up a little cap space.

Gorges is our top defenceman. Gill is brutal but at least he's a big part of our PK. Kaberle has been a big part of our PP and Diaz is a young defenceman who can only get better.

Singling Campoli out? We are WINLESS when he plays. He was responsible for 3 out of 5 GWGs in the 5 games he played for us. In 1 of the 2 other games he was a MINUS 3.

Name ONE attribute to Campoli's game that IS NOT something currently on display on our blueline. Especially something that is worth it to OVERLOOK his atrocious abilities on defense.

Campoli won,t be traded now. But he will when Markov is (finally) back, if....

Right now, it is good depth to have.

Get your facts right. Chicago wanted to keep him, but not for 2.5M. They loved him as a 3rd pairing guy and Chicago is looking for such a D right now and I would not be surprised that we ship him back there. Most Chicago fans loved him and would take him back.

He signed late because most teams had spent their budget or had a full roster after Chicago turned down the arbitration.

Stop making stuff up. Campoli was worth a 2nd last year and we probably can get a 3rd for him.

I don't want to start a thread about this yet, but I heard there's something brewing with Columbus for Brassard. Cammalleri didn't skate today. One of these "Friend of a friend" reports. Unconfirmed, obviously...

I don't like Brassard. Soft and high cap hit, doesn't bring anything we desperately need. Would have to come very cheap. Maybe swap him and Gomez and take on a salary dump.

All things being equal(take out slumps, salary, equal ice time) Campoli is a couple notches above St.Denis.

If all we're getting back is a 6th rounder, I prefer keeping Campoli as an insurance policy.

Campoli can have some value at trade deadline. Maybe a 4t or 5th round draft pick or a borderline AHL player/NHL player

But I do think that Campoli can be useful for the habs down the road. He got experience and I expect him to play better in second half. But if the need don't make the playoff, trading him at the trade deadline is almost a no brainer. Of course, if a team wants him.

Welcome to last week Lshap.

There has been plenty of rumors floating around involving us and the CBJ's.

So basically Campoli could likely be traded and Gauthier will be lucky if he gets more than a 6th round pick in return? Pat's source is HF, isn't it?

agree 100%.

Unless you can get a 3rd or 4th, keep him, maybe send him to Hamilton for a week's conditionning.

Agreed, though we'd need to give up something more substantial than Gomez. Brassard was a pretty high draft pick and is a forward with good size.

Yeah, I remember the Christmas Eve thread on the subject! I dismissed it then, but a totally different source mentioned it today. Gotta' wonder...

I'd trade him as well, but I'd wait till the deadline. We'll get the most for him then. There's no advantage to trading him now unless we need he cp space for something else. Keep him in case we go through more injuries (wood knocked!).

As for deals with Columbus:
I'd love Carter, but they'd want something young and talented from us given what they paid for him, like Eller or something. Unless they're really high on Cammalleri, which I doubt since he's paid 7mil the next two years and they're still looking for a centre for Nash.
Umberger is about the same level as Kostitsyn in terms of production, but maybe a bit more consistent in terms of implication/physical play. His upcoming contract is brutal though. I'd only want him if we get to dump one of our bad conracts in the process.
Brassard is seen as having lots of potential because of his draft position (6th in 2006). But if you ask me that doesn't mean squat 5 years out of the draft (cf. Pouliot, Benoit). Plus he's more of what we already have: a soft inconsitent point producer. With two more years at 3.2? I pass unless we can dump a contract.
Vermette: Similar deal as brassard. More of the same.
Pahlsson would be nice to reunite with Moen as a shut down third/fourth line if we look like we're gonna make the playoffs at the deadline, but I wonder if he's really worth the salary difference with Nokelainen.

There's not much I like from Columbus. Unless they somehow decided to trade Nash or Carter or some of their prospects, I don't really see what they have that would help us improve the team in the long run.

I didn't make a single thing up, you're the one speculating, not me. He sucks and was signed on the 24th of Sept, spin how you wish. He is a borderline NHLer.

If he is a borderline NHLer what did Chicago trade a 2nd rounder for him? ...and why was he awarded 2.5 mil in salary arbitration?

We traded Brock Trotter and a 7th for a "borderline NHLer" in Nokelainen plus got Stafford for the AHL.
