As the NHL moves toward resuming play, the Detroit Red Wings are not close to re-signing restricted free agents Pavel Datsyuk or Henrik Zetterberg. "We're nowhere near a deal with either player," Red Wings general manager Ken Holland said Thursday in an interview with The Associated Press. "We've made a number of offers and they've made offers, but we still have a long way to go to reach deals." It's a priority for the Red Wings to retain both young forwards, but with the league's new collective bargaining agreement the team's salary cap is $39 million — about half of what Detroit has spent in the past.
