Carlo Colaiacovo

I can't recall which thread it was but a Kings fan suggested his name the other day as a player the Kings may express interest in.

What's funny is that two years ago, I advocated pursuing Colaiacovo when he was an unproven commodity with the Leafs:

The following link provides some highlights early on in Colaiacovo's career: http://hfboards.com/showpost.php?p=1...3&postcount=50

Since joining the Blues, he does appear to have avoided the major injuries that set him back when he was with the Leafs. He can play with a bit of an edge as well, something the Kings could use on the back end:







He kind of has that Tim Gleason style of play, where he was expected to be an offensive defenseman coming out of juniors but developed more into a physical defender who will stand up for his teammates (although not the greatest scrapper).

While not the best option or someone I would consider high on a priority list, I think he could be a capable depth defenseman. More so than Randy Jones.

Muahahaha!



My predictions are coming into fruition!

But yeah, I just pointed it out because it made sense, I wouldn't be surprised to see Lombardi inquire about him, whether we get him or not will obvious fall to the price, if it is low enough, then why not?

Didn't Ron wilson call this guy Carla Colaiacovo? How many Randy Jones types do we need to pick-up? He sucks, no thanks.

Not sure Carlo would make much of an impact. I'd like to see a #2 dman traded for to better utilize Jack Johnson as a #3 which is where he belongs. Then you have the 3 quality stay at home defensemen. Right now the Kings have 4 stay at home and 2 offensive, I think they would be more complete and playoff ready with the equal 3-3 ratio.

The ideal defenseman that I'd like to see added is Pavel Kubina. I look at Colaiacovo as more of a depth move who may be a better fit over Drewiske, Harrold or Jones.

Kubina has the Stanley Cup experience with Tampa Bay. He logged big minutes for them and can play both ends of the ice.
