Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Gregg Krupa of the Detroit News,
Ken Holland is in Vernon, British Columbia, sandwiched between Okanagan and Kalamalka lakes. And you can bet his Blackberry is perpetually on. Kirk Maltby’s agent, Anton Thun, is in his office in Markham, Ontario, near Toronto, working the phone.
Thun and Holland are missing each other, and that should be no surprise. Once a grinder, always a grinder and it looks like the process that could lead to Maltby playing a 15th year for the Red Wings is a matter of grinding it out, too.
“We are certainly still talking,” Thun said. “It’s been phone tag. At this point, Kirk’s preference is clearly to play for the Wings.”
Asked if he has talked to other teams, Thun said, simply, “Kirk wants to play with the Wings, and we think something will work out, eventually.”
