    Yeah, we're looking for post-Olympics here. There is no doubt in my mind that we aren't going to go after anyone of substance. Kozlov sounds okay but he's fairly expensive on a team that had to clear room for Franzen by getting Tollefsen in return; whose salary would Atlanta be willing to take? Likely no one.

    Tollefsen will be lucky to ever see the ice with a Wings jersey on. Leino is a 26-year-old rookie. That only works once in a while (say, a guy named Pavel Datsyuk, haha). And it works with goaltending more often (Howard) because goalies take longer to develop.

    I'm new to the forum but a huge Wings fan from north of the 49th parallel. Maybe Howard can work on shootouts during the break? Six OT/SO losses since Jan. 16. Yikes, boys, yikes. Those six points would put us in a tie for 7th.

    Brad May heading to the waivers. Another player, not named, is rumoured to be going onto the long-term IR to make room for Lilja. Talk about cap issues. Anyways, this was tweeted by Bob McKenzie, who I find to be one of the best rumour reporters in the league and is with TSN in Canada. Follow him on Twitter, will find out deals quicker than most websites, including the one he works for!

    Who is going on long term IR? Holmstrom has a bad knee bruise, but is it worthy of going on long term IR?

    EDIT: Also, is it IS Holmstrom is going on long term IR, this might spell the end of him as a Wing. He just can't stay healthy, so why bother spending $3M on him?

    And maybe Holland is playing Lilja for a game (maybe 2 or 3 after the break) to entice some team into taking him. Holland and Babcock have a huge man crush on him and that's why he plays when he's healthy, but Wings have too many young defensemen to keep Lilja around for too long. Some team will take him like a San Jose or an Eastern Conference team who is looking to add some grit for the playoff run.

    I'm probably wrong, but just a thought.

    Red Wings' Kirk Maltby might need shoulder surgery, which would clear cap for Lilja

    "DETROIT -- Detroit Red Wings forward Kirk Maltby is contemplating shoulder surgery, general manager Ken Holland said.

    If Maltby opts to have surgery, he would be placed on long-term injured reserve and the Red Wings would not need to make any more moves to clear salary-cap space for the return of defenseman Andreas Lilja. If Maltby decides not to have surgery and Lilja is cleared to play by Wings' doctors, Holland said he would need to clear about $700,000 in salary, which he would do by waiving a player during the Olympic break, since there is a trade freeze in effect.

    "Kirk Maltby has been playing with a chronic shoulder (issue) since last June and it’s been progressively getting worse,'' Holland said. "Maybe should have had an operation earlier in the year, but given all the injuries that hit us we were in no position to do it.''

    Maltby is talking to doctors and his agent to determine what he should do. If he has the surgery, Holland indicated he would be out for two months, the rest of the regular season.

    "He’s been playing through it,'' Holland said. "The doctors have told him he definitely needs shoulder surgery in the off-season at the latest, if not before.''

    Holland said he did not attempt to trade anybody before today's 3 p.m. trading freeze for the Olympic break went into effect. That is no longer an option.

    Also, the club is bringing Lilja back to Detroit tonight, cutting his long-term conditioning stint one game short. Holland didn't rule out the possibility of Lilja playing Saturday night against Ottawa. But the only way that could happen is if Maltby decided by tomorrow morning to have surgery, in which case he would be placed on long-term IR, and Lilja is cleared by team doctors.

    “I would anticipate he’s not playing, but given the news we heard on (the team’s various nagging injuries) we thought let’s get him up to Detroit,'' Holland said. "We don’t know where we’re at, we don’t know who’s healthy and who’s not healthy.

    “We don’t even know if the doctors are going to clear Lilja. We’re dealing with a whole bunch of uncertainties.’’

    Holland said he told Brad May to take 10 days to decide on his future, assuming he clears waivers. He can then report to Grand Rapids or he can retire."

    Wow, this has to be tough on Malts. I feel sorry for him, he can either take the surgery miss the rest of this season and allow the Wings to keep their younger players, or make Kenny waive some one.

    I hope he takes one for the team.


    I hope May clears waivers and gets to play with Abdelkader more, May was teaching Abs how to fight when they were playing together. Abs has gotten better at fighting, and will be like a D-Mac for the wings in the future.

    no move has officially been made. It is in fact Maltby that would go on the LTIR. If kenny plans on having lilja play tonight he would need a decision from Maltby today. Tough spot for Maltby to be in.
