Campbell hits the score sheet early

ATLANTA -- Brian Campbell set up Eric Staal for a goal 1:20 into the 56th All-Star Game on Sunday before scoring his first All-Star goal off a perfect feed from Evgeni Malkin later in the period.

Campbell scored after slipping in from the point and firing a wrist shot past Chris Osgood from the left circle. Any chance Campbell was giving general managers around the league a little something to think about before the Feb. 26 trade deadline or next season?

Yep.

As auditions go, Campbell isn't going to convince anybody of what he can do based on the All-Star Game. The fact that he's in the game should say enough. Gee, maybe the Sabres should have accepted his five-year, $25 million offer.

Word around the league is that several teams are interested in Campbell. The hottest rumor, and one that made sense, was that Chicago wants him. They're loaded with prospects, including rookie Jack Skille.

Just thought you should know.
