Kirk Maltby Close To Re-Signing In Detroit

When the Red Wings signed Justin Abdelkader to a two-year contract extension, GM ken Holland told the Grand Rapids Press's Michael Zuidema and the Detroit News's Greg Krupa that he's still attempting to convince Kirk Maltby to finish his career in Detroit, even if that means playing for part or most of the 2010-2011 season with the Grand Rapids Griffins.

Krupa's pushed the theory that the Wings must repay Maltby's four Stanley Cups worth of loyalty by retaining him on a full-time basis, so he paid attention to the analogous situation of now-Chicago Blackhawks forward Fernando Pisani, who spoke to the Edmonton Journal's Jim Matheson about the nature of player loyalty about a week after Krupa's column, so this week's column from Krupa essentially pushes both his own suggestion that the Wings need to do their best to keep Maltby and his own agenda, as of that of his agent, Anton Thun:

August 29, Detroit News: "We are having discussions with Detroit, and we hope that something will be finalized next week," Anton Thun, Maltby's agent, said Friday.

Can they fit Maltby and his visor under the cap?

Maltby will be back 2-way or not at all. It's just an excuse for him to hang around and be one of the guys and still get in some occasional hockey.

There is Irony in the fact that your Avatar has an image of Corey Perry in it.

But none the less, its going to be a 2 way deal. And the only way he starts on Detroit is if there is an injury or 3 during Training Camp/Pre-season.

He will start in the AHL, and probably stay there most of the season.
