The scouts that have watched him are saying the same thing. He is big, quick and has a great attitude when it come to learning the position and the game. All reports are that he is also great in the locker room.

Those that I know that personally know him say he is just one class act.

Agreed. We need a real stud in the pipeline (not just an overachiever) if we're serious long term. Outside of Helenius, who was more of a trendy pick because of recent form than a solid one, we haven't been serious about drafting goalies early where they're supposed to be cup caliber.

Campbell is listed ahead of Seguin to this guy...
nice list

I read somewhere though that many think Burmistrov would be broken in half in the nhl

love what he said about Nino

Nino or Gormley...dont think gudbranson or fowler will get to us

You might get a good trade offer for the pick, be able to fill a hole with a roster player or pick up some extra Top 60 picks, and still get a player like Skinner, Connolly, Johanson, or El Nino.

if so, i think you can try to drop to 8 or 9...atlanta is the only team in the top 11 i could see picking him, but teams might deal up to get him

I have heard that the Islanders may be looking at Campbell at the #5 spot.

But they have a goalie locked up under contract for the next 12 years.

I dunno. I don't think you pick Campbell to be a backup/injury-fill-in for DiPietro. Instead, you probably try to grab Pickard at the end of the 1st or early in the 2nd, and tag one of the top defensemen/forwards with the #5.

If the Isles are talking Campbell, then they are trying to maneuver the teams #6-10 to trade up. It's just poker talk IMO.

I don't think Yzerman will want his first pick as a gm to be a goalie. Too much risk. He would most likely look to a player who will be able to produce much sooner than Campbell as he is already signed with Windsor for next year.
Nino, Gudbransson, Fowler, Gormley, Connolly(although his health scares me), Skinner, or Tarasenko(if you want to put the Russian Factor to the test) are much safer picks as they will be able to get into the farm sooner.
