What was BC's +/- rating for today's game?

I'll give him the current hypocritical award from game 3 and the biggest brainfart award from game 2.

Campbell's -3 was probably Kronwall's fault for being too gutless.

Holy cow...I had no idea he was on the hook for THAT much. He is a horrible defenseman....and I couldn't be happier to be facing him in the WCF...any way he can get traded to Pitt next week? wink.gif


They're on the hook for his $7.14 million until the end of 2015-16. And Huet gets $5.625 million for three more years.

On the other hand, starting on Thursday, they can play Chelsea Dagger on s***ty ghetto blasters all summer long for free, to remember the good days this spring when they could beat an NHL team for four games.

How's that for yapping your big mouth about dirty hits (pot calling the kettle black).

And the Hawks are stuck with him for years - noone else will be stupid enough to trade for that contract.
New season, New start! May the force be with the Wings this time!

He's almost as overrated as Mike Green.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Gutless wonder, that's Campbell. He's been good for the Wings, though, tripping over his own loose lips. Keep up the good work. thumbup.gif

He's probably the biggest defensive liability for a big name big salary player since Coffey. I've said since everyone went nuts last year when he was available at the deadline, I think he's tied with Phaneuf for being the most overrated player in the NHL. I'm highly amused at the fear other teams are supposed to have facing either of them.

Campbell fails in the on-ice game and the game between the games (i.e. giving the Wings something to feed on). Gotta love it.

I don't know why but when they showed his hit on Umberger and talked about it today , it was funny as hell.

I'm so glad Chicago payed Campbell as much as they did instead of using that money on more effective players.

Campbell has been awful - I still think he is a better player than what we've seen in this series but definitely not worth more than 4-5M a year.

Chicago has about 20 million in cap space next year with Havlat, Pahlsson and Walker as UFA's. Bolland, Brouwer, Eager, Vertseeg and Fraser are all RFA's.

They are going to have a hard time signing any veterans to anything more than 1 year deals because Kane, Toews and Ladd are going to be RFA's the following season.

My heart goes out to them... rolleyes.gif
