UPDATE: As Andrew Ferraro just reminded me, Kolanos still has to clear waivers before he can return to Houston -- the press release didn't mention that. And he's got until 11 a.m. tomorrow to clear waivers. So it's still possible that some other team will claim him. Sorry, Ms. C.
Wow. Just wow. That's all that I can think to say to this news. The Minnesota Wild are sending Krys Kolanos back to Houston, and they are bringing Peter Olvecky up to Minnesota.
Wow. Just wow.
Nothing against Olvecky, but I don't see what he can add to the Wild. And while I'm happy to have Kolanos back in Houston because that makes the Aeros a much better team, I just don't understand the move because I don't see how this makes the Wild any better.
Like I said. Wow.
But at least this should give Ms. Conduct an excuse to run her Kolanos-smiley photo.
