The year was 1982. Dom Campedelli had just been drafted by the Leafs in the seventh round, but his dramatic improvement during the last year at Boston College suggested he had more potential than the average seventh rounder. But Dom wanted big money and he wanted to be paid in U.S. funds, something that just wasn't done at the time.
His agent, the third of the 21-year olds pre-NHL career, couldn't come to terms with the Leafs, so he was sent to Montreal for a 2nd-round draft choice. After two games with the Canadiens in 1985-86, he was sent on to Philadelphia and later Edmonton, but those two games were the sum total of his NHL bragging rights.
After three years in the minors, Campedelli retired.
