OP I think the thread title should be changed. The guy is a new player but was chosen to defend the winged wheel for now, why the not just " Colaiacovo Hurt"??? Yes Colaiacovo has been injured too many times, but that's hockey. A frigging gamble. He played on the #1 pairing last year STL, what gives? He's not quite excellent enough of a player to please some DRW fans? This doesn't have to be a mancrush fansite but dang show some basic descency. You'd call Cola a glass-man to his face?

Anyways it was a hard ass check and Cola was leaning forward to make the play. Players on all teams seem to be taking a hit real early. This season hockey clubs are going to win because of depth down to their prospects.

It does send a strong message. I get the feeling Babcock will bench who isn't working. It's a good way to say to our D "WAKE UP." I'm starting to agree with the sentiment around here that if as a player you look just ok (Samuelsson), we would rather watch a prospect sent in and give it a try.
