The Latest On Kirk Maltby

Below is an update on where Kirk Maltby and the Red Wings stand, via Ansar Khan.

"He's going to shop the market until early next week,'' Holland said. "If something doesn't come of it, we'll talk.

"I'm open to bringing him back. They also understand there's (Patrick) Eaves and (Drew) Miller and (Darren) Helm and (Justin) Abdelkader and (Mattias) Ritola and (Kris) Draper. If (Maltby) does come back, he's competing for a spot.''

In a recent interview, it certainly sounded like Maltby wants to return to the Red Wings, so it's probably only a matter of time until a deal is worked out. One thing that will be interesting to watch is if he ends up with a one- or two-way contract. At this point a two-way deal makes more sense since roster spots are so limited, but at the same time, would Maltby be alright with the possibility of playing in Grand Rapids? At this point my guess is that he would, but that's just pure speculation.
