Blacklisted for his role in the lockout and now forced to play to Switzerland.

But Switzerland isn't a bad place to play hockey anyway. Beautiful, wealthy country.

He was blacklisted for being one of the worst (if not the worst) defenseman in the league when he played for the habs. Good riddance. Hope that Swiss team knows what they've gotten themselves into.

He could've earned a contract somewhere in the league if he didn't decide to make himself a lightning rod throughout the lockout. He's bad, but there's worse players out there.

For anyone that thinks overlords' post is over the top, I will back it up.

Campoli was a trainwreck. A detriment. A valuable piece to the tank efforts. So no, he's not a lockout casualty, he played himself out of the NHL.

If being blacklisted leads to a job in Switzerland then I wish my boss would blacklist me.

Let's see - what would I have to do ... ?

Campoli didn't get a job because he's terrible, not because of the lockout.

Yeah...I would say his role in the labour dispute probably didn't help his cause as he was already a lousy one-dimensional defenseman.

But good luck to him.

Interesting enough...that pick ended up being Kyle Palmieri.

Not bad: Being useless in the NHL leads now to playing hockey and being overpaid in a (admittedly paradisal) town like Lugano? Dolce Vita, indeed.

Well, at least it hit the luganesi.

The place where he will play hockey from now on:

A big reason why the Habs have Galchenyuk, your tank efforts will be remembered by me for a long time, Chris Tankpoli.

In any case, I'm sure he'll be right around average in the swiss league so he'll be fine.

And I bet he's going to have everything paid; housing, cars, schooling for kids, etc.

Many players made themselves lightning rods during the lockout. Difference being that most of them could actually play some hockey. Campoli isn't a part of that subset. Campoli just got a lot of attention as a hard liner BECAUSE he was so awful. That's what made it so funny.

I think it's a combination of both. Hainsey is also is without an NHL job at this point.
