I don't even understand the thinking behind this, other than "Hey, he's been here forever."

He's slow, he doesn't fight, he doesn't score, he can't kill penalties, he doesn't play on the PP. I'd take Miller and Eaves over him, WITHOUT A DOUBT.

After the unreal amount of injuries last season I can kind of understand Kenny's thinking. A 4-time Champ who can draw penalties could be seen as a valuable call up especially during the playoffs. I mean, San Jose even signed The Turtle didn't they? If a 2 way can be had on the cheap I'm all for it. Don't know what the die hard Griffin fans think, but I would imagine they would love it.

Same thing they did with Mac. 1yr 500k, 2way contract. Plays in GR all year, joins the team for the playoffs but likely doesnt play. I wouldnt mind, if we did it for Mac we can do it for Malts.

The difference is, Maltby has more hockey left in him than McCarty did in 2008. But your scenario makes a lot of sense, although, if he signs at $500,000 and gets sent down, I have a feeling that some team will snag him up for his leadership and veteran experience. On the right team, he could play a big role in the depth category. Plus like it has been stated before, do we know if Maltby will even agree to play in GRR?

And after that he'll go work for Versus.

Malts has been a warrior for the Wings, so it's hard to imagine him playing somewhere else.

But honestly at this point what does he provide that makes it worth not signing either Miller or Eaves?

This is exactly why I wish the Wings would have given the GM Job to Steve Yzermand and not Holland. Kenny is a great GM but this team needs to start thinking youth first. I know we've always had veteran teams and they have worked well for us but with the NHL seemingly getting younger and younger we need to follow. Malts has been good for us but it's time to start thinking about growing younger teams. Let's get some of our younger players signed first and if there is cap space afterward and Kenny still wants to sign some older guys than fine but we really need to get younger.

if he spends the entire season in the minors and is used as a just in case measure during the playoffs I'd rather sign in at the trade deadline so the min. amount of salary is on the books. If he is honestly signing him for the entire season then I suppose Holland has said f*** the cup for another season now...
There's no I in team, but there's a U in c***, so don't be little jealous c***s

If he can't kill penalties, then why was Miller-Maltby one of our main penalty duos along with Helm-Eaves?

While not strictly relevant, I personally feel that he has more to offer than Draper, so it is a shame that an overpaid Draper will stay, while a remotely useful Maltby will be most likely be forced to leave.

Yet he failed to display the mentality and will to crack the lineup last season.

Nothing against Maltby, but he just doesn't have the legs to crack the Wings lineup anymore.

I wouldn't mind having him mentoring the young guys in Grand Rapids next year.Isn't Mitchell Callahan gonna be a Griffin next year?He could use a veteran presence like Maltby to study from.Same with Landon Ferraro,I'm pretty sure he'll be in Grand Rapids next year as well.Maltby,like Downey,McCarty,and May in prior years,could prove beneficiary by spending some time with the Griffins.

Someone will have to confirm this, but I think that they are still too young.
