The Detroit Red Wings have submitted an offer to free agent defenseman Carlo Colaiacovo, True Hockey’s Andy Strickland reports.
Colaiacovo spent last season with the St. Louis Blues, tallying 19 points in 64 regular season games. While he has dealt with injuries throughout his career, he would bring a boost to the Red Wings’ blue line that needs a replacement not just for Nicklas Lidstrom, but for Brad Stuart as well.
Colaiacovo has become more and more sought after since Ryan Suter signed with the Minnesota Wild. He has also reportedly received offers from the New York Rangers, Carolina Hurricanes, Philadelphia Flyers, and Calgary Flames

If one source makes it a “report,” two make it, “sources say” and three make it official, MLive’s Brendan Savage and the Macomb Daily’s Chuck Pleiness received a hand from the Windsor Star’s Bob Duff, who gives Wings fans another leg to stand upon if they indeed hope that Carlo Colaiacovo is the Red Wings’ free agent band-aid of choice:

Amongst this evening's Red Wings quickies:

We occasionally hear it from ex-Red Wings—and Daniel Larsson’s still complaining about the fact that the Red Wings dared to tell him to get off the goal line in an interview with Marie Hallman—but most of the time, challenges to change and to deal with a little less ice time than players had expected are welcomed, so in the case of Red Wings prospect Andreas Athanasiou, his...

Johan Franzen has been known by Detroit Red Wings’ fans and teammates as “The Mule” throughout his career.

With the KHL promising to expand its rosters in case of a lockout, Aftonbladet’s Hans Abrahamsson responding to the Swedish Eliteserien’s decision to deny entry to players who won’t commit to balance-of-the-year deals entry into the league by suggesting that the Allsvenskan will gobble up players, and Henrik Zetterberg more or less being given the opportunity to apologize for...
With the lack of Red Wings moves this offseason you have to wonder at this point whether or not it was all part of Ken Holland’s plan in preparation of an NHL lockout.
After missing out on Ryan Suter and Zach Parise, was plan B Matt Carle and Alexander Semin or was it to stand pat and see what the new CBA had to offer?
In this weeks edition we discuss just that along with the following...
The rosters keep on growing.
The Detroit Red Wings and the Toronto Maple Leafs have each added players for the Winter Classic Alumni Showdown. The showdown will take place December 31 at Comerica Park in Detroit.
The Red Wings have added former defenseman Aaron Ward and forwards Red Berenson, Jimmy Carson, and Dennis Polonich. The Maple Leafs have added enforcers Brad May and Dave...
Pre-season predictions don't mean much to me. Some dude looking at last year's standings, looking at each team's off-seasons, trying to figure out who's going to win each conference... it's just opinion. It's even more fantastic when you're thinking about this season, which will probably be either lockout-shortened or just lost altogether.Now, just because...

Because I have yet to wade in to the stormy CBA waters (which I finally will today) there hasnât been much to talk or write about for the last four to six weeks. At least thatâs the case regarding the St. Louis Blues....
It's been a rough summer. First was the no go on Suter and Parise, then came Ken Holland apparently being frozen in carbinite between July and August, and now a lockout looms. So how to make it better? A Josh Howard movie poster production.
It's a good one, after the break.
Amazing as usual.
