As a fellow red-head I was sad to see Matt Murton leave the cubs. It's rare that you get to cheer for another ginger as a professional athlete - but who cares about that now? The hawks formally introduced Campbell at a press conference yesterday.
If you didn't get a chance to see the press conference live - it's up on the hawks site, here
Besides the follicle similarities, I am excited to see Campbell play for the hawks this year. Many bitch about him now being overpaid - but all professional sports teams have players being paid way beyond what they're worth - some on this very team. He may end up being a bust - he may end up being a driving force for the hawks deep into the playoffs... we'll see. For now I'm hoping to see him lay out some Wings this winter. At least some people over at BHZ agree
For those of you who follow the propect camp, 6th round pick Ben Smith scored twice in the first scrimmage leading the red team to a 5-0 victory. One of Smith's goals came against Niemi...
Not a lot has been said about the Walker signing - but over at St. Louis Game Time it seems at least some Blues fan (but hardly all of them) are sad to see him go and it's always good to get a guy that can be a fan favorite... even if he is just a cheap replacement til Wiz is healthy
