Sharks acquire Campbell from Sabres

Unable to sign their potential unrestricted free agent to a long-term deal, the Buffalo Sabres have traded defenceman Brian Campbell to the San Jose Sharks for forward Steve Bernier and a first-round draft pick.

STEVE FREAKING BERNIER. Here are the right wing’s NHL career stats:
Year Team League GP G A Pts +/- PIM Shots Sh%
2007-08 San Jose NHL 59 13 10 23 -2 62 96 13.54
2006-07 San Jose NHL 62 15 16 31 +5 29 104 14.42

So why not just keep Campbell until July, Darcy? You would’ve got nothing in return for him then, but you’re getting nothing now. So why not keep him for a playoff run?


Someone’s gotta help me out here and tell me the point of being a sports fan in this town. I’m struggling.

  1. I was probably too quick to judge Bernier, better known as the “Big Bear,” according to WGR radio. He apparently has a pretty good rep as a big, tough player, and has a lot of potential.

    Wait a minute…”potential?!” I’ve had enough “potential” to last a lifetime. If “potential” won Stanley Cups, the Sabres would have ten of them.
