The Malik Report

from Ansar Khan of Mlive,
The Detroit Red Wings no longer are exploring the free-agent market for bargains, and trade talks have slowed down.
General manager Ken Holland anticipates a quiet summer.
The Red Wings are still hoping to acquire a top-four right-handed shooting defenseman through a trade. And they might sign right wing Daniel Alfredsson next month....
Holland said he'll continue working the phones trying to swing a deal for a defenseman.
"Had the odd call, but for the most part it's slowed down," Holland said. "It goes slow now for July and August. In past years once (top) free agents are off the market and money is spent things get slow."

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.
