How the mighty have fallen.
Campbell was supposed to be the next Jonathan Quick.

The other day they were talking about him on XM and they said his workout was geared towards looking good on the beach, not on the rink.

So it sounds like his work ethic and professionalism isn’t exactly there.

I haven’t seen him in the minors, but I know when he was first drafted and at the WJC’s he had a REALLY awkward style, and he had some bad habits he was going to have to get rid of in a hurry.  I would imagine some of that has played into his career arc as well.
