Tuesday links: Glad to have Carlo back in the fold edition

The links have returned from a not-relaxing-enough holiday weekend. Hope everyone had a good Fourth (and Fifth). Now let's get back to the world of links.

Blues news

  • Carlo Colaiacovo will be back for 2010-11. His new deal is perfect — he's getting paid a fair amount for a short period of time. Hopefully, he's motivated by the short deal to play his ass off to earn a new fat deal, and hopefully by the time the deal is up, the pipeline will have replaced him. [St. Louis Post-Dispatch]

Hockey news

  • Bob Probert died at 45. I was surprised that I was shocked by this news. [ESPN]
  • Habs Eyes on the Prize has a story about meeting the now-late Bob Probert. Thankfully, the story of the meeting happened before Probert passed and we don't have a Zombie Probert on the loose. [Habs Eyes on the Prize]
  • Quisp from Jewels From the Crown has the best idea for what to do with Ilya Kovachuk. [Jewels From The Crown]
  • Ilya Kovalchuk is probably going to sign with the Devils. Maybe. [TSN]
  • The Red Wings are really trying to get Mike Modano. This is a guy who admits the game is too fast for him, but hey go nuts Detroit. [ESPN]
  • Taylor Hall is now rich so woman officially have one reason to sleep with him. [ESPN]
  • Sheldon Souray was put on waivers. He has cleared waivers. [ESPN]
  • Jacques Demers, the illiterate former NHL coach and current Canadian Senator, is in the hospital. [TSN]

Other links

  • The best fake headlines from media and TV. [Pleated Jeans]
  • Figure out how many Shaq's you are. [Calculate Your Shaqtion]
  • Inflatable swimwear might be the greatest invention ever. [Neat O Rama]
  • I can't grow facial hair, and it's probably for the best. I know I'd look like some evil dictator. [PopCrunch]
  • From Busch Ice: Donut King needs to consult his lawyer for improper image usage. [Buttersafe]
