Really good deal. I said he's be a great fit for a team where he would be allowed to play on the second pairing. So this is a good match as he'll play behind Ekblad of course.

I'm actually very surprised nobody offered him more, but less surprised if it turns out he took less to play there.

It's more Yandle + Demers for Campbell + Gudbranson, but yeah still a big win.

Florida's putting together a really solid team. Not many holes in their lineup now. They're gonna be tough to beat.

It's actually Yandle + Demers + Pysyk for Campbell + Gudbranson + Kulikov, but, they definitely still come out far ahead.

Plus any contract there is worth inherently more take-home as well.

As we have suddenly learned...or suddenly hammered home.

Florida wins the most impressive team builder of the offseason award.

Tampa wins the most impressive player retainer award.

Florida is really warm and sunny right now.
