Despite the deadline for a lockout sitting just a few days away, teams continue to sign players to new deals. It doesn’t make much sense but then again very few things in this whole CBA process have made sense. Detroit is now one of those teams, signing St. Louis defenseman Carlo Colaiacovo to a two-year deal worth a reported $5 million (Andy Strickland).
Evidently, the Colaiacovo era in St. Louis has officially ended. Strickland reports Carlo will earn $2.15 million in 2012-13 (assuming there’s a season) and $2.85 million in 2013-14. Currently only a few outlets are reporting Carlo’s deal as being completed. Most outlets still have the sides still talking.
