Ottawa hoping to sign Brian Campbell

Bruce Garrioch of Sun Media is reporting that Brian Campbell will be in Ottawa tomorrow at his agents office and there is a great deal of speculation that the Ottawa Senators will make a big time push to land the talented defenseman.

One of the thoughts is that the Senators would like to replace some of the talent that will be lost as a result of the loss of Wade Redden. It is highly speculated that Brian Campbell has a strong desire to play in the East and Ottawa is a team that the article indicates that he would be excited to go too.

Also mentioned in the article is the extreme competition that the Senators will have in trying to sign Campbell tomorrow. It is reported that the Atlanta Thrashers will offer Campbell a whopping 8.4 million dollars per year over 5 years to sign in Atlanta.

We will have to wait and see how much money talks.
