Dont like this guy. Never have. But damn. He has answered the bell since DeKeyser went down. Not one person has badmouthed him on here in 6 or 7 games, and the Wings are doing pretty darn well with him at the #6 slot. Good job Carlo. Keep up the steady play.

Agreed. Solid play. Throwing his body around. Earning his dollars.

Agreed. A man possessed yesterday. Very physical and managed to stay on the bench instead of being sent to a hospital.
I'm offended that you're offended.

He's always been a good player. People just irrationally translated his injury history as meaning he is a bad player.

I hope he stays around. Obviously with his history we can't rely on him, but it's good to have him for insurance.

He got CRUSHED at the end last night. Glad to see he was ok. I too give him props.

He's been a solid d-man for us when he's in there.  I was little worried when Shaw blasted him into the boards late in the game.  We don't need another injury on our blue line.

The entire defense has been playing worlds better than we've seen even just last series.  They all deserve props, even Smith and Quincey.  There was one play I think in the first behind Jimmy where Quincey flat out battled the guy with everything he had and I couldn't believe me eyes.

It's like the whole time he's been away they replaced his glass bones with some light steel frame or something.  He's taken a few hits, he's made some great diving plays to keep breakaways from becoming goals against...What do you guys think?

Why don't you like him? Since he's been healthy I've thought he's played great.  


There's no I in team, but there's a U in c***, so don't be little jealous c***s

I dont know. I just was never a fan. But he's been great since he got the call. I have to admit it.

Didn't know much about him before he signed here but I agree he's been pretty solid. Keep up the good work Carlo.

He is always been a real solid dman, injuries have always been his only problem. Always had the potential to fit in nicely in a 2nd pairing. Really hoping he can stay healthy, would be great for him and us.

He has been solid. I mentioned in the GDT the same thing.

 

With the growing pains that Smitty is going through, I can see next years 6 starters looking like:

 

Kronner - Big E

Q - Diesel

Kindl - Cola

Smitty

 

Smitty will come around and by 2014-15, he will be in the starting 6 again full time...until then Cola is working out nicely...thus far.

I went to the game last night, and I'm pretty sure I was yelling "Cola-iacovo" more than any other wings d-man's name.

 

He played a heck of a game last night. Keep it up, Cola!

This. 


"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

I always liked him.  Why?  Because I hadn't really followed his career before.   :tounge:   He is definitely holding up his end of the battle out there.  I am so damn proud of them all.  Everything from here on out is gravy on the cake.  ...Or something like that...


"He even ate with women who at that time were accorded the same status as the family donkey. Are we willing to break bread with, say, child sex slaves, transgender teens and undocumented workers? Because when Jesus comes back to Earth, that's where he'll be hanging."
You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.
