Red Wings general manager Ken Holland indicated on Wednesday that nothing is brewing, so it doesn’t appear as if the club will make a move anytime soon.
“The phone is ringing a little bit; I’m calling a little bit,” Holland said. “With the Olympic break coming, I don’t sense a lot of activity.
“I talked to a few managers the last few days; there’s not much going on.”
The Red Wings are on the fringe of a playoff position in the Eastern Conference, one of several teams competing for two wild-card spots. They could be anywhere from seventh to 13th in the conference depending on the day’s results. They have five games until the Olympic break and three more after the break before the trading deadline.
“We have to play our way into being a buyer,” Holland said. “There’s no use spending assets unless we play our way into a buyer position.”

About The Malik Report
The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
