It was expected that Kirk Maltby would make a decision about his future after the weekend, but nothing has been announced yet. A decision could be coming today, though, and if Maltby decides to retire, he may immediately begin a job as a scout for the Red Wings.
"I’ve talked to Kirk about keeping him in our organization," Holland said. "The one guy who left and we haven’t filled his spot is Pat Verbeek. We had three pro scouts, we’re down to two."
All signs point to Maltby retiring, but he obviously is thinking long and hard about what to do. For him, this is a potentially life-changing decision, so it's smart to make sure you're absolutely certain of it before announcing anything.
