Two-Way Deal Maltby's Only Option- Only option for Kirk Maltby other than retirement, that is. If Malts still has the bug to play professional hockey there is no conceivable way he can do it and remain in the Detroit organ-i-zation unless he signs a two-way deal. There's just no room left at the Inn.
Mike Modano: What REALLY Happened - Whoabot from Beards of War delves into the 'true' reasons that Modano ended up a Detroit Red Wing rather than a San Jose Shark or a Minnesota...Wild? Is that the plural of Wild?
Note to Malik: Pack Your Bags- The Chief over at Abel to Yzerman is sick of getting what many consider second rate reporting from Detroit's beat writers. So he started a campaign to raise enough money to send George Malik to TC for training camp. He'll do his job well- so help him get there!
Pieces are Falling into Place- A rare piece from Ellen over at Big Red Machine. She discusses the Modano signing and various other puzzle pieces that are coming coming together to build the 2010-2011 Stanley Cup contender.
The Greatest Red Wings of MY Time - #11- Graham from The Hole in the Door continues with ongoing saga of the greatest Red Wings over the past 30+ years. This player got his nickname from Steve Yzerman and made sure to sign an 11-year extension right before suffering what was supposed to be a season-ending injury only to come back, play in the Olympics, and score 4 goals in one game on the brink of elimination. #93 - Johan Franzen.
