Kukla's Korner Hockey

from George Sipple of the Detroit Free Press,
The Red Wings weren’t sure if Jimmy Howard was ready to play 25 regular season games in the NHL last season. They hope he’s ready now.
The Wings have decided not to offer a contract to Ty Conklin, who ended up playing 40 games last season and winning 25.
The Wings are out of options with Howard, who has played four seasons with the Grand Rapids Griffins in the American Hockey League. Howard, signed through 2010-11, is due to make $717,700 this season.
For some reason, I see Holland dangling Howard in some trade talk in the next few weeks.
