from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,
Holland met with Ritch Winter, agent for Hossa, the last two days in Montreal.
The two discussed possible deals, but probably not as high as Winter would hope.
“I think he (Winter) was hoping for something higher,” Holland said. “I told him this was as high as I could go before I had to start dismantling (the roster).”
Holland and Winter are expected to continue discussions throughout the weekend in Montreal, where the draft concludes today.
The Wings are offering Hossa a lengthy contract, maybe as much as eight to 10 years, at an average of $4 million to $5 million.
