I posted this in the Trade Rumors thread but thought it would apply here as well. Soon enough, the famous Martin for Stewart HF Board Rumor may return ;-)

"Colaiacovo gets Offer….

Sources confirm talks have progressed between D-man Carlo Colaiacovo and the Detroit Red Wings. Word is he’s received a multi-year offer from Detroit with the New York Rangers and the Carolina Hurricanes also expressing some level of interest. He turned down Nashville earlier this summer while the Calgary Flames have indicated they could be interested in if they move Jay Bouwmeester.

As for St. Louis, they haven’t closed the door on Colaiacovo but may choose to give Ian Cole an opportunity to take the next step. Word is Cole has had a great off-season and is in terrific shape. Whether or not he can be a quality partner for Alex Pietrangelo is certainly unknown. Pietrangleo could always slide over to the left side if the Blues load up and pair the future Norris candidate with fellow up and comer Kevin Shattenkirk. GM Doug Armstrong continues to explore the trade market searching for an upgrade on defense. A new CBA could force teams to move a player or two depending on the salary cap."
