Just heard the guys say on the Tigers' game that they will have news about Kirk Maltby coming back next year after the game. That's all I know right now.

"He even ate with women who at that time were accorded the same status as the family donkey. Are we willing to break bread with, say, child sex slaves, transgender teens and undocumented workers? Because when Jesus comes back to Earth, that's where he'll be hanging."
You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.

Maybe on a 2-way contract. Otherwise, I don't see how or why he would be signed with the current logjam of bottom-six forward the Wings have under contract.

This was stated a while back. Doesn't shock me a bit and is a depth signing at best really.

That's pretty much what they said. Nothing definite yet.

We could do that with a 1-way contract too. A 2-way contract only means that a player gets paid different salaries in the NHL and AHL. Maltby will have to clear waivers to be assigned to GR, and if they recall him during the season, he'll be subject to re-entry waivers as well.

From the Free Press article:

That'll mean being sent to Grand Rapids, which isn't appealing to a veteran of 1,072 NHL games, 908 of them since he joined the Wings on March 20, 1996. Maltby, a four-time Stanley Cup champion in Detroit, will have to weigh whether he wants to stay in the area or see if another team is interested. His agent, Anton Thun, did not respond to messages seeking comment.

"We'd like to find a way to get him to camp, then sort it out there," Holland said.

A two-way contract would mean the Wings could recall Maltby, 37, at any point during the season, and so long as his stint is shorter than 10 games or 30 days, he can be sent back to the minors without going through waivers again (he would have to do so the first time).

A one-way contract would almost guarantee Maltby would be in Grand Rapids all season, because if the Wings called him up he'd have to go through waivers. That would open him up to being claimed by another team, and under CBA rules, the Wings would be on the hook for 50% of his salary, which could be a problem under the salary cap.


It looks as though Holland wants to get as many forwards to camp and figure out who fits best. They have to have a contract for Maltby to get him to camp.

After the Modano signing and Hudler coming back, is there even room for Maltby?

I like it for loyalty and for development of younger players. Kind if sad in a way, I wish he'd take a front office job.

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.

Yes... I really wouldn't appreciate Modano nearly as much if this doesn't happen soon.

Why would Maltby want to end his career in GR?

He'd be better off retiring than ending it like that.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.
