According to truehockey.com writer Andy Strickland, Red Wings have made multi-year offer to Colaiacovo.
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.
don't mind the player, see no reason to go beyond a year, though. He's always injured, he isn't physical, he doesn't have size, he's lefthanded and he doesn't pk - while we have more than enough guys who can the powerplay.
Sign him for a year to fill out the top6, and see if he earns a longer contract. As it is, he doesn't look like he'd be the hardest part to replace, and there are guys like Roszival, Kubina, Jurcina, etc. who could come in and likely play similar ES minutes while also taking some PK time.
