I know Maltby scored 50 goals in the CHL. But a goal a game is something to be excited about


I would take a player as good as Maltby right now.

I wonder If Holland is still considering calling him up this season. Not that we need him, but if we lock up a playoff spot it might be a good idea to let him play the last game. Then again, our team is finally developing great chemistry.

Unless he walks into Grand Rapids and scores a hat trick in his first 3 games Id say you have a better chance of winning the lottery than seeing him with the Wings. Remember hes been playing against kids. Lets see how he does against men in the AHL.

There was a rumor going around that he was to go to the Wings, not the Griffin, once his season was done. Coming from Fischer. But it wasn't very specific, so we dont know, if true, if that meant he was going to watch, soak in the atmosphere, or play. Why come up here when he could play with GR and get playoff experience there? It just seemed strange. But if ever the Wings would take a chance on someone it's this season and the player would be Mantha.

It might mean that they didn't plan for him to play for the Griffs in the AHL playoffs either.  If he's going to sit & watch, why not have him do it with the big club at this point?

Probably this is true

Oh this young man has had a very trying rookie season, with the litigation, the notoriety, his subsequent deportation to Canada and that country's refusal to accept him, well, I guess that's more than most 21-year-olds can handle... Ogie Ogilthorpe!

I'll stick my neck out and say that Mantha will be on the Wings roster by xmas.

That's entirely possible.  But wouldn't they rather have him play for the Griffins? It's not like it'd hurt them or him.

I say don't skip steps with him. Let him transition and learn how to carry the mail and be The Guy at the next level, the ah, like he's been doing in the Q. Confidence is a strange thing, often times when it's lost it's never regained, that's why sports psychology is such a huge industry now.
