from Ansar Kahn of Mlive,
Don’t expect Henrik Zetterberg to sign a long-term extension on July 1 like San Jose’s Joe Thornton did last year. Zetterberg has one year remaining on a contract that averages $2.65 million a season, but Holland doesn’t anticipate a quick signing. He said he has had only preliminary talks with Zetterberg’s agent and that no figures have been exchanged yet. His new deal is expected to be in the $7 million-a-year range.
“Over the course of the summer and as we get into camp I’d like to ramp things up,” Holland said. “Free agency is getting more difficult. They got more and more options. It’s going to take a long time.”
much more on the Wings including Drake may retire and Stuart’ shoulder is ok…
