I agree with the general consensus on this one.

Eaves > Matls

If Maltby has outperformed Eaves I have no problem with this. None of us know what's going on in every practice. I want the players who work for a roster spot.

Shouldn't they both be on waivers in order to make room for Hordichuk?

If Eaves is waived instead of Maltby I will not be buying my 19 game season ticket package. To be honest i think we should have waived draper before Ritola.


In that case I hope they do waive Eaves, I wouldn't want some fair weather fan sitting next near me at the Joe. You'd have everyright to be pissed but come on we're talking about which 4th liner you might see 7min a game from, hardly a reason to boycot the Wings, besides aren't you a little late getting your package since it includes 2 preseason games?

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.

no way malts makes it, the only way is if eaves's injury is serious, but then again why not keep ritola

I agree with this statement, that being said I think that Eaves is safe.

They won't waive Eaves...This thread makes me sooooo happy that the negative button has been taken down...all this talk on Malts, Drapes, and the little about Holland would have seen everyones user rating drop like crazy!

There's absolutely no explanation for a move like that that would make sense. There isn't a single facet of the game, besides experience, that Maltby has an edge on Eaves right now.

George Malik isn't always reliable, and this particular rumor is nonsensical.

Yeah, I don't see any way they keep Malts up with the big club. I can see someone making the argument that having both Drapes & Eaves injured to start the year might make Kenny lean towards keeping Malts up, but I would think they would be comfortable with Abby-Helm-Miller as the 4th line until those two are ready.


Would they keep Malts up over Meech? It's just as easy to call either up from Grand Rapids if they clear and are later needed, but Meech is far more likely to get claimed than Malt-O-Meal.

The fact that the Wings would even consider waiving Eaves makes me worried. Eaves is young and he is a hard worker. He is good on the PK and can score goals.Plus he has a great smile and he gets so excited when one of his teammates scores a goal. What more could you ask for?

I like Maltby, but there is a reason that no other team signed him during the summer.I know he still has the desire to play but there are other guys on the team who are better than him and they deserve their chance. It is no fun getting old, but there comes a day when everyone has to accept that they are not the player that they used to be.

It's obviously going to be Maltby put on waivers. Odds are no one will pick him up. So he's extremely low risk. Why lose one when you can lose none?

Because Maltby scored 50 goals in junior?

It was suggested on FSD and reported o have been suggested by FSD by George Malik on Twitter.

Its from legit sources, but I think was speculation that has since been reported as fact.

I think people were just surprised Maltby wasn't waived with the rest of the crew today, which IMO is because if Draper, Eaves and Bert are all injured on Friday, they need somebody to fill in after putting one of them on short term IR.

That is my thought on it at least.

First it was Ritola over Miller and I thought that was upsetting.

Eaves just screams Red Wing. So does Maltby, but this isn't 2000.

If Maltby has outperformed Eaves I have no problem with this. None of us know what's going on in every practice. I want the players who work for a roster spot.


Fair point, but how likely is that scenario? Besides, I've never heard anything besides Patrick Eaves has been a very hard worker since joining the Red Wings.

I like Maltby, but this is borderline insane to even be considering.

Plus, he's got that insane smile when he scores.

Wait, I don't understand. I thought the whole point of signing Maltby to a 2 way contract was so he could be sent down to GR because he wouldn't play a lot. Does he still have to clear waivers?

Regardless I think Maltby will clear waivers, so I'd rather see him there than Eaves. I love both and would hate to see either go, but right now Eaves is the better player.
