Fredo’s Back Soon, And This Time For Good

How long before we see this?  "Getting Carlo back is just like kicking some tires at the deadline and coming away with a special player, a special man, really. I like our team."

Ken Holland's big offseason splash is on the verge of returning, essentially guaranteeing the Wings one period of excellence before he gets hurt again.

Defenceman Carlo Colaiacovo also feels he’s been upgraded to day-to-day status. Out since suffering a shoulder injury during Detroit’s season-opening 6-0 loss at St. Louis, Colaiacovo has dealt with setbacks in his recovery, but feels he’s finally over the hump and nearly ready to play.

Well, that's just super.

In case you didn't know, and you wouldn't be alone if you didn't...eh Kenny?, Fredo's been hurt before.

The nickname “Glass Carlo” isn’t a very kind one but it unfortunately has been a pretty truthful one over the last few seasons. Over the last three seasons Colaiacovo has played in 64, 65 and 67 games. From concussion-like symptoms to hamstring injuries, to wrist injuries and the infamous “lower-body” injury, Colaiacovo has experienced it all.

That's from a Blues site, because I couldn't find anything from our Diggers acknowledging the fact that Fragile Fredo's been hurt before, ever.

But, hey. He'll be back soon and I'm sure all that nastiness is behind him. 

In other news, Patrick Eaves has strained joints in his jaw.  A puck hit him there and it strained his joints.  Gustav Nyquist is coming back up because we need him to play 7 minutes tonite, while Justin Abdelkader plays 17 and puts his ass in the general vicinity of any puck shot by Pavel Datsyuk. Score!

We're going to go ahead and Live Blog the game tonite because VS told us it's a Huge Rivalry Game.  This is not the Live Blog. It's just a simple post from a simple man.

See you tonite. Bitches.

I could tolerate Doc if it was just him, but the whole crew is just going to have to be shutty.  Streaming Ken Kal and pausing video.
