from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,
Holland plans to meet with Hossa’s agent, Ritch Winter, during next week’s trip to western Canada. Holland is talking to the camps for Hossa and Johan Franzen, the Wings’ two biggest free agents headed into summer.
“Given the uncertainty of the economy, I’m moving slow,” Holland said Wednesday. “But it’s not only the economy. It’s about team building, it’s about our philosophy. We can keep Franzen and Hossa, but then we’ll have to let a whole lot of other players go. I don’t know if that’s the answer to being competitive. But if I can get a number that I think allows us to have one extra player, you start to think more and more about doing something. Right now, I’m not really close to where I’d like to get to with either side.”
