I'd rather have Cole and Russell get more minutes, EVEN if there's no other defenceman signed. They can play Cole full-time on the 3rd shift, and see if he's ready. IF a d-man gets seriously injured, they can make a trade THEN. Of course, I'd rather have them trade for a player who can play alongside Pietrangelo right away. But, if they can't land one, I'd be satisfied to see Pietrangelo pair up with Shattenkirk or Polak, and Cole start on the 3rd shift, rather than having Colaiacovo return. His would-be salary can be combined with other money to pay the salary of the better d-man they trade for in mid-season, or near the deadline.
