So... do you think Brian Campbell wanted to come back, or what? The Chicago Blackhawks signed him to an eight-year, $57+ million deal way back in 2008, but the salary cap forced a trade long before his contract ended. He's spent the past five seasons with the Florida seasons - more than the three he spent in Chicago.
But Chicago was the place for him. It's not just evidenced by the one-year, $2 million deal he signed to come back - but it's clear from just his Twitter account, too!

Still got the jersey? Check. Updated Twitter icon and banner? Double check. His last tweet before that one?
