Ken Holland met with Kirk Maltby on Thursday to discuss Maltby's future.
The long-time Red Wing has been assigned to Grand Rapids and is going to take the weekend to decide if he wants to play in Grand Rapids or retire. Holland had this to say following the meeting:
"I know which way (Maltby) is leaning. I told him to take the weekend and make his final decision on Monday,'' Holland said.
Ansar Khan speculates that Maltby is leaning toward retirement. If he does in fact decide to hang up his skates, it's possible that he could be offered a job in the Red Wings organization.
