    Is he the real deal? Looks like learning from Quick in LA is paying off.

    7 game sample size is enough to make this thread huh

    Wouldn't be the first time a hIghly touted goalie takes a long time to reach his peak.

    Seems like it takes many goalies to their late 20s before they are really fully developed.

    This seems exactly like that "Carter Hart has a .957 save%" or the "Is Mackenzie Blackwood the best young starter in the East?" threads that blew up when those guys went cold again.

    His career has been pretty short- only 71 games so its tough to say.

    I would certainly say hes a solid 1B, too early to see if hes a starter considering the most games hes played in a season is 31

    Amazing stats
    Too small of a sample
    The 29 yrs old career backup is most certainly on a hot streak

    His career numbers are pretty good.

    30-27-6 with .919 sv% and 2.46 GAA

    That’s basically one season total played. He’s been a good back up. He could be a good starter. Not enough sample.

    He should start game 1 even if Andersen is healthy.

    If you look at stats, the sample size is way too small. If you've watched every game he's played (for the Leafs) like I have, you realize just how solid he is. He's always in the right place. His anticipation and positioning is top notch. He's got a calmness about him that Anderson doesn't have. Anderson seems to have to make more flashy, erratic saves, but Campbell never looks flashy because he's always in the right position.

    You can tell by watching him that he's starter material. The only question is whether he can stay healthy.

    Considering what he's doing in front of the same line up compared to Anderson and Hutch to a lesser degree you gotta start believing. Hot streak or not he deserves the chance to run with being named the starter.

    Biggest question is whether his health can hold up with a regular workload. He's missed time twice this year with leg issues and its scary to solely rely on him given that.

    He's been incredible when he's played tho, analytics love him too. There have been other goalies who didn't become starters until their late 20s, so its definitely possible.

    Yeah, but its not just a 7 game hot streak. Its a 7 game hot streak backed up by a seasons worth of high level performance. Obviously he's not going to sustain a .948 sv pct but he's building the case that he can be a legit starter.

    Happy to see he's finally hitting his stride and developing into the goalie Dallas hoped he'd be when they drafted him in the first round, over a decade ago.

    He’s a 29 year old goalie with 71 GP. Probably a hot streak, not some hidden gem. Leafs need a real #1 goalie next season

    Kuemper and Markstrom were in very similar positions as Campbell before they turned into legit starters.

    Or before commenting perhaps you should actually watch him play. Stats rarely tell the whole story. He doesn't look like a goalie on a hot streak, he looks like a goalie with absolutely top notch fundamentals. That doesn't just go away.

    Not main boards worthy because a 7 game winning streak means no villages were harmed.

    I don’t think he’s ever gonna be an all star. But he’s always had the ability to be a legit 1A type .


    Our goalie system has been crazy good in LA, the key is whether he can maintain it or flame out like Martin Jones or Ben Scrivens.

    I think Campbell has a better chance of long term success.

    He's always had excellent numbers.
    He's a high draft pick.
    He's was stuck behind Quick in LA.
    He is extremely injury prone.
    Goalies are voodoo and come out of nowhere.

    Verdict: Who the hell knows.

    Legit starter. He was already pretty good in LA.

    69 games is little but I think he is.

    Legit 1b starter. Obviously our defense is great so that helps, but Anderssen was crap behind the same group. He won't stay undefeated but I expect his play to keep up. He should be in conversation for some top 5 vezina votes

    He passes the eye test as a legit starter. And the small sample size worth of numbers back it up. I'm very excited to see what he can do if he can stay healthy and play the majority of the games.

    The Leafs don't even need vezina level goaltending. They are playing great team defence allowing very little every game. I would settle for average goaltending at this point
