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.

Whoever it will be, I won't be happy.

Red Wings defence changed from top class to absolutely **** in few months.

I would love a trade for a really good D. Sacrifice Flip and some of the better forward prospects. We really need a reliable Dman.

My guess has been Nathan Paetsch. I wish we'd claim Jim Vandermeer though.

The Wings defense hasn't been top class since 08 or 09.

The deterioration of Rafalski's knees, the wearing down of Stuart and aging of Lidstrom made this defense much less than top class.

Now, however, it is among the worst in the NHL

Gotta be Mark Eaton or Brett Clark. Either way, not the solution. Basically a bandage over a stab wound.

Huskins or White would be my bet since they don't have any real veteran shutdown defenceman

Actually semiplausible. Lebda looked like a legit bottom-pairing guy last year.

My guess would be Colin White.

This Jackets and occasional Preds fan certainly agrees.

Babcock said #RedWings have signed a veteran free agent defenseman who likely will play tonight. Stay tuned to player's identity.

DET is signing UFA defenceman Kent Huskins today. One year, one way contract.

UPDATE: We've signed defenseman Kent Huskins to a one-year deal, re-called Gustav Nyquist from GR, and placed Bertuzzi and Colaiacovo on IR.
"Colaiacovo on IR" has to be the most redundant phrase in history.

Wow...very average #5/6. Should definitely bolster the d-corps.

Kent Huskins? Great the Wings just found their Lidstrom replacement. Can't believe the rest of the league was unable to sign him.

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.

From what I can see the best part of his game is shot blocking.

Which might not be the worst thing for Detroit, considering our PK blows.
