Edmonton talking to NJ and Buffalo about moving Campbell (e3)

January 25, 2024, 4:38 PM ET [35 Comments]
Quick hit to start your day today. There are two teams out there currently working hard to improve their goaltending situation. The Buffalo Sabres and the New Jersey Devils. Both teams in need of goaltending to achieve their goals. For this season…The Sabres need to get into a playoff fight, and NJ needs to compete for a Stanley Cup.

The Oilers have now won 14 strike games, and look like the team to beat in the NHL right now. Meanwhile, Campbell, who is in the minors, is a big cap hit that the Oilers would love to use elsewhere… Campbell struggled mightily this season, but those familiar with the kid, from USA Hockey, see him very much as a fine goalie who could suddenly dominate with his skill level, given a fresh new team that is willing to believe in his game….

The Devils and Sabres organizations are stock full of USA hockey people at the management levels. The Oilers would certainly have to take on half the salary, but that beats paying a guy NHL numbers to play AHL.

Would YOU give Campbell a chance?
