He's a plus player, good age, and if he can stay healthy, he's good for a solid 30 points. Given what was out there, this was our best bet.

Better than Kindl at least.

Love this signing. And Tootoo's. Holland has answered the grit/tough guy calls, possibly a sniper call, NEEDS that #1/#2 defenseman though.

decent. and still have roughly 9 mil left

our D might be a little tougher, but we need guys to step up offensively. like kronwall wouldnt hurt to have another 50pt season

This signing annoys me for no other reason than that he is the third player on this roster to have worn the cursed Maple Leafs sweater in recent years.

I'm not sure what the lines will look like. Hopefully Eaves is healthy when there IS hockey. If there is hockey.

At this point I'll take it. Carlo should fair well with a shorter season this year, hopefully he can hang on for most of it. He certainly helps boost the back end, it really doesn't look so bad now, Im excited actually!

He was the "best of what's left", so not a bad signing if your expectations are in the right place.

He's not going to be a top pairing guy, but for additional depth, I think he'll do well.

I love this signing if only because it means I'll get to say his name a lot more often this season. Go on, say it with me now: Carlo Colaiacovo, Carlo Colaiacovo, Carlo Colaiacovo. Fun, isn't it?
