He would probably play PK if he didn't break a bone every time he blocked a shot. The guy has a laundry list of injuries. Which might be good for us , Carlo and Kindl could split time as #6, it eases Kindl's load/responsibilities.

also, I was not aware St. Louis wasn't using him on the PK until you mentioned it. Seems odd, but I guess when you have the Blues blueline, a guy like Carlo will sit in favour of your better guys.

Detroit doesn't only need a top pairing D-man, we need a bottom pairing/extra guy too. Who's our first injury callup right now.. Lashoff? Dear god..

why are you only mentioning only this offseason???

lebda and lilja could do what cc can do as well. thx god both are injured at the moment. otherwise ken holland would have picked both of them like he did with samuelsson.
now he is trying to get some other mediocre player.
what an epic decline on roster talent.

fight for western spot 8-12 here we come.

This would make, by my count, some combination of 6 offensive defensemen that they'd be trying to shoehorn into being defensive defensemen. And trying to shoehorn one defenseman who's not good at anything into being a defensive defenseman.

That would work out tremendously, I'm sure...oh well, why not...

While CC wouldn't be my first choice (especially for a multiple year contract), I think the whole "we need a PK guy" thing is a bit overblown. Kronwall, Ericsson & Quincey all averaged over 2 minutes of PK time last year. White was over a minute.

Also, CC isn't a blackhole in his own zone. For the most part he is reliable, while having the ability to move the puck up ice and get us on the attack. Is CC going to lock everything down in his own zone and dominate defensively? No, but he may get us on the offense quicker and help keep the other team on their heels.

Just because Quincey played two minutes a game doesn't mean he's any good at it.

edit: I want to expand on this because I wasn't trying to just be snarky. It's just that it's easy to make a statement like that about anyone. It's unfair to disregard what a player's been trusted with over several seasons in favor of a brief stretch of regular season games during an injury crisis or over a dislike of the guy.

Signing Colaiacovo is one thing, but this..

They had conversations with Calgary about Jay Bouwmeester, but they aren't willing to part with the assets it would take to acquire a top-pair defenseman.
So basically, we'll have to hope one falls into our lap. Rely on the kindness of the hockey universe to work something out. Sounds like a plan.

Not the answer for sure, but him at 2.5 million is not a bad value.

People are freaking out, and I don't like the fact we've come to this either, but he IS better than a guy like Kindl is now, and gives us more depth in case we need to make a trade. Since the cap money isn't going to be spent anyways, nothing wrong with this signing AT ALL when taken in context as a stand alone move.

The value isn't bad, but still, it doesn't solve our problem with missing penalty killing defencemen. He would be just another Ian White to be paired with Ian White.

I'm ok with Colaiacovo, if there will be another trade for a defensive defenceman.

Correction...a poor mans Ian White, to be paired with Ian White.

I really don't know how this team is going to kill penalties if they sign this guy.

Oh my god.

Rozsival would have been better option, he can actually defend. He may have some health issues but one must remember who we are trying to sin instead of him..

Poor man's White? I don't know about that.. but yeah, it would be hard to find dynamic pairings with that D corp.

not that it isn't a worrying trend in general, but i wouldn't want to give up much (flip+) for j-bo. don't get me wrong, i'd be willing to give up serious assets for something better, but i'm not a fan of j-bo.

as for cc, im not a fan, but we need bodies. i'd rather kindl got some ice time, but we're so low on d that it isn't easy to criticise moving for cc. though roszival might be a better idea.
