Did Campbell say that he wanted to be in Chicago too
Versteeg went on WGN radio in Chicago this morning and not only said he hoped former Chicago defenseman Brian Campbell would eventually follow him to the Second City, but that other teammates sounded a little jealous in their text messages to him.
Campbell said he never mentioned to Versteeg that he wanted to be in Chicago.
“I’m right where I want to be,” Campbell said.
As far as waking up went, Versteeg thought the trade might have been a dream. He told reporters in Chicago that he was having dinner in Minneapolis and didn’t answer his phone when Tallon initially called. He knew something was up when he checked the phone and saw Tallon called a few times — and had left a couple of voice mails.
“I didn’t really know what was going to happen,” Versteeg said. “Florida, we were struggling a little bit and you heard that there might be something going on. But obviously when Dale called me last night and told me I was coming back here, obviously put a smile on my face. And I’m very excited about coming back here. .-.-.
