I know I am in the minority, but I really like guys with red hair. I don't know if it's just unusual taste or familiarity (a goodly portion of my family are so afflicted). But the fact remains, I like them. I have a particular fondness for Brian Campbell who is much more appetizing as a Saber than he ever was as a "Guppy" (San Jose Shark) where he played my Stars with such alarming frequency and skill.
What's Hot - I know it's not everyone's thing, but the hair. I'll give everyone a heads up and say that his looks are VERY much improved if the team makes the playoffs. His playoff beard is a true "caterpillar to butterfly" transformation [shivers]. Since there's absolutely no denying that he looks much better on video than in 2 dimensional photos, I've included some that I thought were fun. THIS is really cute, and VERY true to form. Try not to laugh too hard at THIS, it's all at once singularly embarrassing while being very endearing at the same time. I COULD NOT resist giggling at this one, myself. Every time I see him do an interview, I think that he'd be the very best "straight-man" in a comedy team. While he's not possessed of a bubbly personality, I like his quiet and subtle wit.
What's Hockey - He's really good. Halfway through the season, he's the 'Hawks number one defensive goal scorer with 23 assists, a +/- of 8 and 7+ goals scored. He is considered to be one of the top 3 acquisitions by any club in the NHL during last years off season. Last year he ranked second among all NHL defensemen with 54 assists and tied for third with 62 points both career highs in 83 regular-season games. Amassed seven points (a goal & six assists) in the Sharks 13 Stanley Cup Playoff games last year. He really was a TOTAL coup for the Chicago Blackhawks. I count him among the very best D-men I've ever seen play.
