No, I think Campoli was the value in this deal for Ottawa.

yep, murray has been targeting campoli and russel (of CBJ) all year. Comrie is a bonus, and it looks like he will resign in ottawa for less than his current contract.

if you look at ottawa's drafting history with late firsts (jim obrien, nick foligno, patrick eaves, martin havlat), you wonder whether ottawa would have been better off with the pick, but all of those players took at least 2 years to make the NHL, and havlat was the only one who was anything special (thanks marshall johnston). In the end, i guess murray decided that having campoli next year for the low cap hit of .633 outweights having a prospect trying to make the NHL 2 years from now.
