I'm ok with this. He'll be good as a mentor for the kids in GR. And, he'll make a decent fill if we need an emergency call up.

And it seems like he knows what his role would be on the team, so there's very little chance that he would crack the lineup (thus robbing someone on the 4th line of ice time).

So if this is true, and it happens...

16 forwards. The fourth line will be a competition between:

Abdelkader, Helm, Eaves, Miller, Draper, Maltby, Ritola.

That list is in order of how likely they are to earn a spot.

So Ritola is probably traded before the end of camp. The Wings will probably try to send Maltby to Grand Rapids, as he offers the big club nothing without several bottom-six injuries.

In an odd way, Maltby being signed might have increased the chance of keeping Meech. Adding Maltby to the group at TC puts a different angle towards Eaves/Miller who are the two players Meech is likely competing with for a roster spot.

:cool:

He's definitely not good enough to puncture this years roster.

I know you're probably adding to some running joke, so correct me if I'm wrong.....

But Maltby does deserve a little respect for what he's done, no?

I believe you mean 4th line? 3rd line is pretty much set at Hudler-Modano-Cleary.

Yeah, that. Although Babcock is the coach, so you never know which will get more ice time...

Good deal - I think this turned out the best way it could. Welcome back, dude!

edit: "Good deal"? Where did that come from? Some people have senior moments...I, apparently, have Minnesota moments. You betcha.

Happy to have him back in a two-way/GR depth capacity. Teach the kids how to hit 50, Malts.
If some bored artist wants to make me a signature, feel free to cut loose and do so.

I don't want Maltby to get the first emergency call up, that should rightfully go to the most promising PROSPECT, like tatar or someone.

That depends on who goes down injured, at what stage of the season and so forth. If you're sitting cozy at or near the top of the conference and its just a usual roster player that goes down, you call in the young guy and let him get some experience. If its an important veteran or the team is in a position where it needs to perform, you call in the experienced, stable vet.

Honestly, I hope we're in the position where we can afford to call the kids up.-

Why would a fan possibly care if it's a two-way deal or not? Do you pay his salary?

I think more than anything, from a fan perspective, it shows that the player knows he could/is going to and is willing to play in the minors for a pay cut if he doesn't do something relatively spectacular to make the NHL roster.
