I am thinking this has to be a loyalty two-way contract. Not that Malts can't contribute in some form, but there are better players with a similar game in the system. Look for Malts to spend most of the season in GR unless there are significant injuries.

What kind of color is red? Red is a warning, a declaration, a color that says I'm ready to do what it takes. Red is focused and driven because red doesn't like second place. So what kind of color is red? Their kind.

I think it's funny that they offered him a contract and he didn't immediately jump all over it. I wonder if San Jose and Minnesota will be making him an offer as well...


Maybe it is a 2 way contract and that's why he isn't jumping all over it. Or he could be mulling retirement. This might be an indication that Holland is no longer confident that Modano will sign here.

The Griffins have a YouTube channel. It's pretty cool to check out during the season.

Oh lord.

I really don't see a place for Maltby on the team with Helm, Abdelkader, Miller, Eaves, Ritola and Draper.. I hope this doesn't mean that Holland won't be getting Helm or Abby signed.

I had heard Maltby was considering San Jose, so it may depend on what they have offered him since he'd have to re-locate his family. But if he wants to play for more than just next season, he won't take the Wings offer if there is something else out there.

Our only hope is that they're wrong. NHLSourcesSay isn't the most reliable.

Bingo. I wouldn't put anything into this. This guy said Wings were going to offer Kovalchuk a one years 8.5mil deal and I replied to him and said they would have to move about 6mil worth of salary to do that. Then within minutes he said he talked to a source that told him it was just a dream idea by someone and it wasn't real. Yeah from me and or a bunch of others saying there is no way this happens? There is no way if they are waiting on Modano that they would sign Malts. Maybe they do if Mo says no but I dont think he's back. Without Modano and signing Abby and Helm Wings are at 14 forwards. I don't see it happening unles he wants to play in GR.

Hopefully not. It's time to bring in some of our younger players. That's it and that's all.

Jiri Hudler's last two playoffs 9 goals and 26 points. Jason Williams last two playoffs: 0 goals. So yeah, totally the same. His last season here he had 23 goals so you really don't think that'll make a difference? As for him being overpaid guys who scored around 23 goals last year were Vinny Lecavalier, Brad Richards (who both make almost 8mil) RJ Umberger who makes $3.7mil Radim Vrbada who makes $3mil. So overpaid? Not really.

Williams is gone, Meech probably will be and at best Maltby is on a two-way contract, which I don't think he'll take. Kris Draper will be gone after this year.

So do you actually think things through or research them before you post them or no?

I figured it was the wrong link, but I thoroughly enjoyed Jiri Fischer chirping the prospects. And his potential passing wind at the very end of the video once the bench clears out, lol. :hehe:

EDIT: Oh yeah... umm... boo to Maltby.

only reason I see Malts crack this lineup is if he, Draper, and Helm become the new grind line. Malts starts crap with other players, scores timely goals, and checks. Draper wins faceoffs and Helm/Abby f*** up everyone on the ice.
