Hawks lose part of their CORE for a month
Posted 03 October 2010 - 09:21 AM
The Chicago Tribune on Saturday quoted 'Hawks head coach Joel Quenneville as saying Campbell will be out of action about four or five weeks with a sprained right knee.
Campbell was forced to leave Friday's exhibition victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins after taking a hit along the boards.
It is another stroke of bad luck for the bruising backliner, who was forced to sit out the remainder of the regular season with a broken collarbone and fractured ribs after taking an illegal hit from Capitals superstar forward Alex Ovechkin last March. He was not fully healthy until late in the opening round of the playoffs.
Last season, the 31-year-old recorded seven goals and 38 points in 68 games, adding a goal and five points in 19 playoff tilts for the defending Stanley Cup champions.

so the bad luck begins for the Hawks. Wonder if they will end up like us and play with half a team all season, due to injury. It would be interesting to see if they could make the playoffs (as the Wings did) with most of their regulars out injured.
When we lost all those guys, we had to bring in our top prospects from the AHL. Chicago's top prospects are already in the regular lineup....

I guess he can take some consolation in the fact he's grossly overpaid. He'll be well paid for rehabbing that knee.

Of course, I could get off my lame rear and do something.

we have to remember that for all the crap Campbell gets for his albatross contract he is still a decent top 4 blue liner. when he got injured from Ovechkin's hit last season the Hawks struggled mightily in the games he missed
Campbell's not bad, he's just ridiculously overpaid. That's not his fault.

Campbell is a terrible player who adds nothing to their team. Him being out hurts the Hawks how?
I disagree. Cambell is a good d-man but not a great d-man. The Hawks will replace him with yet another prospect.
