General manager Ken Holland doesn’t anticipate making any moves for a couple of weeks, when he has a better idea of next season’s cap figure. Much will depend on whether Hossa is re-signed.
Whatever happens, the Red Wings still have a strong nucleus of players in their prime and some good, young talent in their system, ensuring they will remain among the NHL’s elite.
One day after losing to Pittsburgh in Game 7 of the finals, Holland lamented his team’s inability to close out the series after leading 3-2. But he commended his players, some of whom played through significant injuries, for their effort, feeling they just ran out of energy at the end.
And he praised the Penguins, whom he said were focused and hungry and gained tremendous experience—particularly young players Evgeni Malkin, Sidney Crosby, Jordan Staal and Marc-Andre Fleury—from losing in last year’s finals.
