That's what happens when you lose your top pair over the summer.

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

Exactly. We lost Ehrhoff, could you imagine if we had lost Bieksa that summer as well?

Edler - Salo
Hamhuis - Tanev
Ballard - Rome

That is not going to get you far. I'd feel bad for the Redwing's if it wasn't for their 4 cups in the last two decades.

Colaiacovo has always been one of my favorite players...I don't know why. I don't see him sticking around in DET, in all honesty

They still have Kronwall, Quincy, Ericsson, and White. With the addition or Carlo, they have a solid defence core. Although it is not outstanding, it is a core that can be used to win the cup.

Not to mention they have a pretty solid prospect who is ready to play in Smith

It's Red Wings. There's a space there. Come on, people. As hockey fans, you should know this.

As for the signing, I have no idea what I think about it yet.

Still not confirmed by any media outlet, not TSN, no one, only Andy Strickland.

Helene St James from the Detroit Free Press says they are still just talking.

Red Wings are talking to UFA D Carlo Colaiacovo, but he is not signed. They've wanted to add veteran D for depth.

Lidstrom replacement? Nope, Lidstrom can never be replaced.

Good Top 4-6 D player though.

If they acquire Bouwmeester they'll be a solid #4 team in the Western Conference for the next 2-3 years.

hold your winged horses, it says "REPORT" on NHL.com (though I do believe that they would be front runners (flyers?) for Carlo's services)

Also not sure why they didn't pounce on Rozsival (though good for Chicago to sign him, I guess)

The Wings have a long track record of picking up guys like this at a low point and by defining them a role on their team and getting the player to buy in to the system, and then they see those players flourish.

“Reason is itself a matter of faith. It is an act of faith to assert that our thoughts have any relation to reality at all.” - G.K. Chesterton

“Unbelief is as much of a choice as belief is. What makes it in many ways more appealing is that whereas to believe in something requires some measure of understanding and effort, not to believe doesn't require much of anything at all.” - Frederick Buechner

“All human nature vigorously resists grace because grace changes us and the change is painful.” - Flannery O'Connor


“My argument against God was that the universe seemed so cruel and unjust. But how had I got this idea of just and unjust? A man does not call a line crooked unless he has some idea of a straight line. What was I comparing this universe with when I called it unjust?” - C.S. Lewis

This was downgraded to rumour on HF.

Strickland's been known to jump the gun on total bs, because he's an 'insider' only for St.Louis players. (Usually not even that.)

I've always like Colaiacovo. He has good offence, he is quite crafty and seems to get the job done. Although he gets hurt a bit to often. Reminds me a bit of Bieksa without the grit, but he has size. I've always thought he would do very well on a top team, now I'll see if that's true or not.
