Red Wings Rumors: Carlo Colaiacovo Offered 2-Year Deal, According To Report

The Detroit Red Wings have reportedly offered 29-year-old defenseman Carlo Colaiacovo a two-year deal worth approximately $5 million. The news comes by way of Brendan Savage of MLive.com, who reported on Friday morning that the Red Wings bumped up their initial one-year offer to Colaiacovo, who has spent the past four seasons playing for the St. Louis Blues. According to Savage, Colaiacovo is "a good skater and puck-mover with some offensive ability" who "can play the point on the power play."

The guys over at Winning It In Motown say he wouldn't be able to replace Nick Lindstrom on his own, but that he would be a sold addition to the blue line if he can stay healthy.
