oh, i was happy with that deal too.
The thoughts of Markov skating with another team were driving me mad.
But i really feel the management dealt with the Markov recovery like amateurs.
And unfortunately cost us a playoffs spot + Campoli + Kaberle's awful deal
I don't find the Campoli deal all that bad, considering it was 1 year and he was supposed to be short term fill-in for Markov. Problem was he got hurt right away. The Kaberle deal still confuses me. They were lucky the last few years by picking up rental d-men to help the PP, but they were all shooters in their UFA year, so low risk. Kaberle is not any of those things. Hopefully the GM will be able to get rid of that contract somehow, but I assume he would only do this if they need the money (cap room) to put towards another player/players.
