haha, this has been a long running joke within the detroit community. is he actually in RI yet, or has he still yet failed to report? I know he's currently suspended within the club, but i was unsure if he actually made it on American soil yet. As much as I would love to see him come to the Wings, I don't think I want to touch that with a 10 ft pole. That dude screams trouble for clubs so far.
Has it been a joke? Not surprised, the whole situation has been a beauty. The latest news is that his son requires minor surgery or something so he won't report until that's taken care of. He is scheduled to report some time in early February and has said, he's 'looking forward' to it.
In any case, he can definitely help the Isles with our sad blue line. He could be a deadline deal if he gets over here and plays well. It's clear that he's done with the NHL after this so he'd be strictly a rental.
"Colaiacovo on IR" has to be the most redundant phrase in history.
Bert on IR? I'm guessing due to the Nyquist call-up to make the 23 man roster? He's due to play Friday. His mono test was a false-positive at first. Babcock just wants to get his legs going again before jumping into a game.
