Quick Hits: 9/8

A Decade of Dominance - Big news going around today.  But I'll let the others give you their thoughts on it here.  I went back and looked at what the 2K Decade meant to the Detroit Red Wings - and it meant a lot of good memories and a crap load of hardware.

Wings Re-Sign Kirk Maltby- The news of the Kirk Maltby signing goes Anthony of the Unconnected Red Wings Blog.  Maltby's deal is worth near the league minimum at the NHL level.  Most think that Malts will start (and probably stay) in Grand Rapids in this season - which could be his last.

Meech Placed on Waivers- After working to try and find a trade partner unsuccessfully, Kenny decided the best thing to do with Derek Meech would be to send him through waivers as reported by Chuck Pleiness of Red Wings Front.  Meech isn't gone for sure yet - but at a mere $500 K the versatile player will probably be snatched up by noon tomorrow.

ESPN's LeBrun believes Red Wings' Nicklas Lidstrom remains a Norris contender - As George Malik of Snapshots points out in his title - Pierre LeBrun of ESPN names Duncan Keith, Drew Doughty, and Nicklas Lidstrom as his picks for the 2010-2011 finalists for the Norris Trophy.  Agree with an ESPN guy?  That doesn't quite sit well...then again, leaving Lidstrom off of that list wouldn't either.
