First Morrison now Guerin. Not to mention all the other veterans sitting out there. Maltby is in a tough situation with the Wings and we take care of our veterans.

Ridiculous. This should not be how multi-cup winners are dealt with.

This has to do with salary more than anything.  In regards to salary, Billy G made 2 million last year.  Billy can still pot some goals on a PP, but he really has lost a step or two.  At some point, you have to open the roster spot up for the young kids in the farm system.  Billy would be a great addition to any team as an assistant coach.

Yeah, *#$%@& them!  Why give them a tryout and see if they can cut it?

I do hope he’s able to fill a specialist role for some team out there. Unfortunately, I believe he’s limiting himself by wanting to stay in the mid-atlantic region for family reasons. That’s not going to make it any easier. That said, he’s a great team leader, and I hope some team gives him another shot.
