Campbell Has One Last Request

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Sabres Edge at the Buffalo News,

Brian Campbell’s last message to Sabres fans was a simple one, and it came from the heart.

“Don’t boo me when I come back,” the defenseman said this afternoon shortly after being traded to the San Jose Sharks.

Campbell fought back tears but also chuckled with reporters as he discussed the trade. He was sent to San Jose along with a seventh-round draft pick in exchange for 22-year-old right wing Steve Bernier and a first-round pick.

“It’s life changing,” Campbell said in HSBC Arena.

Did The Penguins Give Up Too Much

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Empty Netters at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette,

OUR TAKE: We don’t like this deal at all on many levels.

1.) Hossa is a noted playoff underachiever. He’s produced only 35 points in 55 postseason games. After racking up 100 points during the regular season last year, he disappeared in Atlanta’s four-game sweep at the hands of the Rangers producing only one assist.

2.) This flies directly in the face of the philosophy the Penguins supposedly have as far not giving up too much of the future for the present.

added 4:37pm, from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

For Pittsburgh, meanwhile, there is a considerable long-term risk attached to the move. Given that Crosby’s contract extension kicks in next year (for $8.7 million per season) and they will ultimately have to pony up big to retain Evgeni Malkin the year after that, it is unclear how general manager Ray Shero might also find the $8 million or so required to sign Hossa beyond July 1.
