according to Blues Blogger Andy Strickland wings have made multi-year offer

Sources confirm talks have progressed between D-man Carlo Colaiacovo and the Detroit Red Wings. Word is he’s received a multi-year offer from Detroit with the New York Rangers and the Carolina Hurricanes also expressing some level of interest. He turned down Nashville earlier this summer while the Calgary Flames have indicated they could be interested in if they move Jay Bouwmeester.

Depends on what the deal looks like, but I certainly wouldn't mind having him on a contract roughly the same as what White got paid last year. Though ideally I'd like a bigger, stronger, stay at home guy, I do know that Colaiacovo usually plays real tough against us, and when you hear a guy's name a bunch against the Wings its usually a pretty good sign that he can play the game.

GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

A blues blogger is not a legit source to me.

Unless this rumor is confirmed by someone more substantial, I'm gonna move it to the Rumors forum.

I also changed the topic title to more accurately represent the source.


Anyone hearing about this anywhere else?

If it's confirmed from a legit source I can move it back or someone can start a new thread.

Yes please. If we aren't going to make a deal, better to get the best d-man left on the market. Hope it gets done.

I love the kid too...he is going to be a force on the blueline but do you really think Smith, having played a whopping 14 games in the NHL is gonna start the year next to Kronwall on the top line? If he has an unbeleivable year, he may end there, which would be awesome.
I hope we do get Carlo- it gives us depth. It also gives Smitty a chance to be around a guy who has been in the league a few years too.

No doubt Strickland's got some connections, but he's also made some claims in the past that never materialized. I'd say he's about 70-30 in terms of being right about things. Andy's credibility aside, I'd be fine with Carlo for a couple years. He's one of those guys who seems to play up and down, and just really gets hampered by the injuries. In the right setting, he can challenge for a top four spot.

I'd rather we get Vandermeer on board for a one year deal at $1 mil. Guy knows his role and plays it well. He's older than Colaiacovo and won't put up the offensive numbers, but he's much more sound defensively. Vandermeer can also eat up some PK time.

That being said, I guess I wouldn't be too upset if we got Colaiacovo here. He can put up some offensive numbers and he is relatively physical. However, he's an injury risk.

This was one of my favorite moments watching hockey. If I recall correctly, Larry Murphy had a good response to watching it as well
