The NHL is back and that means one thing, Carlo Colaiacovo is injured. Yes, that’s right Blues fans, just two games into the season, the Detroit Red Wings have lost the services of Carlo Colaiacovo once again proving that he is in fact, made out of glass.
When the St. Louis Blues made the decision in the offseason not to pursue Carlo Colaiacovo, the Detroit Red Wings took their time in pursuing the former Blue. Agreeing upon a deal late in free agency, they knew what they were getting, but were willing to take a chance on the former first round pick.
When healthy Coco, as he was called in St. Louis, or Cola, as they call him in Detroit now, can be a great defenseman who knows how to move the puck with great skill, but he is rarely healthy. St. Louis Blues fans can finally enjoy all of the jokes around the NHL concerning Colaiacovo so please feel free to share any of your favorites in the comments below.
For a Detroit team that is already having its fair share on trouble on the blueline, this could be a large issue, although they did manage to win in a shootout in Columbus last night. Only time will tell how many games Colaiacovo will actually play in this season, but I for one will finally enjoy how often he is injured.
That’s all for now Blues fans, LET’S GO BLUES!
