Is being a ginger with no soul considered a positive or a negative?  Either way though....pass.

Topic title says it all. Would you trade for Brian Campbell?

 

Positives:

- Elite #1 defenceman.

- Powerplay quaterback.

- On a non-playoff team. (last in the east)

- 1st on his team in points. (tie)

- 1st on his team in min/game. (over 25min/game)

- Signed on through 2016.

- Florida is already at next season's cap floor with 17 guys signed on.

 

Negatives:

- cap hit is $7,142,875.

- fairly one-dimensional.

- undersized for an NHL defenceman. (5'10 190lbs)

- despite leading in points he is 2nd worst on his team in plus/minus at -12.

- would cost a fair amount to trade for.

- is one of "Tallon's boys"

 

So would you be interested? If so, what would you give up?

 

Keep in mind this team is at the bottom of the standings and would have no interest in any of our UFAs. (ie. Filppula)

 

Also this is not a "would you prefer Yandle or Cambpell thread". Let's assume for discussion's sake that when it comes down to the deadline other top comparable defencemen are either already dealt or have a price-tag much too high.

Cap hit way too high and you can't be an elite #1 Dman and be "fairly one-dimensional"

Thankfully Ken Holland's modus operandi isn't overpaying players. No thanks

Nope, we need a defensively responsible first pairing guy. Brian Campbell has his place, but him and Kronwall are too alike in terms of what they should be contributing.

No, but just because of the salary.

I would if the cap hit wasn't so brutal. Definitely an upgrade over Ian White.

Cap Hit would hand cuff us from acquiring any sort of Dastyuk winger.

Uhhhhhh. Holland just doesnt overpay or compensate fairly the GOOD players. He overpays crappy old guys routinely.

Kronwall can move the puck, White can move the puck, Colo can move the puck, Quincey can move the puck, Kindl can move the puck, Smith can move the puck.

 

Sure Campbell can move the puck slightly better, but puckermovers are not what we need.

 

Sorry but this thread IMO is ridiculous. With that contract for Campbell, Holland wouldn't even look once. We might as well discuss trading Emmerton for Chara while were at it.

We're not talking about the Brian Campbell who we ripped to shreds in the 2009 WCF, right?  Cos that guy was so defensively awful we simply have to be talking about another Brian Campbell, right?  Right?


"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

For that price i'd take two Bouwmeesters and that's saying a lot. I'm very familiar with Campbell, he is not worth that contract and is not what we need here. While i'm not gonna call this thread ridiculous, i'm pretty much going to reflect everything number9 said above because it's dead on.

No - ludicrous cap hit

 

No - too small

 

No - our defense is shaping up ok and we have serviceable guys that are scratched every night.

 

No - He is too old

Enough of the Holland-esque "our D is fine" garbage. A top pairing D-man needs to be signed this summer, or traded for (I don't see how this works). Campbell is not what we need, nor is Komisarek, but the team desperately needs a #1 defensive minded defenseman.

no thanks to Campbell but Drew Stafford is on the market and i think the Wings would be able to get him for a prospect and a pick i think he would be a good winger for Pavs to have but anyone is better then Cleary and Abdelkader

 

Ryan Whitney, Brendan Morrow, Paul Stasny and Mark Streit are also on the market according to TSN Canada
