The Florida Panthers' power play is likely to improve by default next season.

Their collective PP shooting percentage was 7.6, which was considerably lower than even the second-worst mark (9.3 percent). It's highly likely that will improve even without personnel changes, especially if Brian Campbell (team-leading 12 PPPs) sticks around.
Sep 6 - 3:48 PM

Brian Campbell reportedly would like the Florida Panthers to trade him.

Is there much of a market for Campbell though? He's certainly a valuable offensive defenseman and although he's 35 years old, he should still have some strong seasons ahead of him. However, he comes with a $7,142,875 annual cap hit through 2015-16 and that's likely to scare off teams that would otherwise be interested in the veteran puck-moving defenseman. The Panthers can make things easier by agreeing to retain part of his cap hit, but they might not be inclined to do so if they didn't want to move him in the first place.

Brian Campbell recorded his 30th assist of the season in a 3-2 loss on Saturday.

Campbell also had seven goals, giving him 37 points in 82 points in 2013-14. That's something of a disappointment by his standards, but it isn't surprising given how anemic the Panthers' offense was this season.

Brian Campbell scored the lone Panthers’ goal in a 4-1 loss to Boston on Tuesday night.

Campbell notched his sixth marker of the year, bringing his tally up to 27 points through 62 games.

Brian Campbell's two helpers pushed the Panthers by Toronto 4-1 on Tuesday night.

Campbell now has five goals and 25 points through 55 games this season. Certainly not his best effort from a fantasy perspective.

Brian Campbell had an assist in Florida's 4-1 defeat on Saturday.

Campbell has five goals and 23 points in 55 games this season. Barring an injury, he shouldn't have any trouble reaching the 25-point mark for the ninth straight campaign.
Feb 2 - 10:01 AM

Brian Campbell has played more sound defensively this season, but its come at the expense of offensive production.

The veteran blueliner had 27 points, six power play goals and a -22 rating through 47 games last year. This year, he’s got 21 points, two power play goals and an even rating through 50 games. Two possible factors are that last season his shooting percentage was incredibly higher than his career average, and this year Tom Gilbert is stepping up into a complementary scoring role for the Panthers’ defense.
Jan 24 - 8:12 PM

Brian Campbell ranks third in the NHL with an average of 27:21 minutes per game.

Even for a workhorse like Campbell, that's a lot. In fact, at the age of 34 he's on course to set a new career-high for average minutes. "You do what you have to do, I think," said Campbell. "You don't control [the minutes] so you try to get a lot of rest, a lot of pills — the legal ones. I try to take care of myself and you learn over the years." He has four goals and 16 points in 38 matches this season.

Brian Campbell generated a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Ottawa Senators.

Brian Campbell wants to get Florida's power play back on track.

"We moved it around better [Saturday]," Campbell said after a 4-1 win over Colorado. "It's frustrating for me. I look at the power play. We've been in the Top 10 the last few years. Not a lot has changed, we still have the personnel here to get the job done so for me it's something I think about a lot and it upsets me. We got to start climbing in that category and be better." He scored with the man advantage against the Avalanche for the game's winning goal. The Panthers have the league's worst power play, with seven markers on 74 opportunities.

Brian Campbell's two points helped the Panthers beat the Avalanche on Saturday night 4-1.

Throughout the Panthers' early-season struggles, there has been one (good) constant and that is the play of their veteran blueliner. Campbell had a goal and an assist Saturday to give him 12 points this season. Among the regulars, Campbell is one of three with a plus rating, too. Jonathan Huberdeau, Tomas Kopecky and Brad Boyes picked up the other goals. Tom Gilbert assisted on three of the goals.

Veteran defenseman Brian Campbell scored two goals in the Florida Panthers' 4-3 loss to the Rangers in New York Sunday night.

They were his first two goals of the season. Aleksander Barkov (third) also scored for the Panthers, who have lost nine consecutive games.

Brian Campbell was minus-three in Florida's 4-0 loss Friday night.

Remarkably, Campbell is actually plus-one this season and one of just two Panthers' players with a rating above neutral. Florida seems to be in line for a long season and that should make it particularly challenging for him to maintain a plus/minus in the positives.

Brian Campbell snapped a four-game pointless slump on Saturday.

Campbell registered an assist to give him five points in nine games this season. He's averaging 4:36 power-play minutes per game, which should help him best the 40-point milestone in 2013-14.
