Truly, Truly, Truly Outrageous

July 6, 2008

The Chicago Blackhawks posted an interview with Brian Campbell. Aside from the usual platitudes about how his new team can win and he’s excited to be there, and all that other crap, came this gem (and it just might be truly, truly outrageous.)

I don’t look at myself as an offensive defenseman anymore. I see myself as a complete player…

He doesn’t consider himself an “offensive defenseman?” Most Sabres fans would disagree with that statement. How many times was it pointed out during the season that Brian Campbell was one of the few defensemen for the Sabres that was able to bring the puck out of the zone? How many times was Soupy caught out of position on an odd man rush because he was piddlefarting around in the offensive zone? Soupy’s a little too old to be changing his playing style from offensive defenseman to whatever.

Even though he’s no longer a Sabre, Soupy still provides an endless source of bloggy goodness.
