The Malik Report

from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,
"I've been here a long time and very proud, very happy to be a Red Wing," Holland told the Free Press. "I work for, I believe, the best owners in the NHL — passionate, committed. It's nice to know that ownership has confidence in me to continue to lead going forward."...
"I talked briefly to Mike yesterday; we exchanged texts. He's out west," Holland said. "When he gets back to town, at training camp, we'll sit down and talk. It's best that he and I talk about situation when we're face to face and both engaged in the conversation. So sometime in September, we'll talk."
More immediately, Holland is working on a contract for restricted free agent defenseman Danny DeKeyser. Holland said, "We'll find a solution. We like Dan a lot; he's been a real good, young player for us. The hard part is trying to find what's fair for player and for club. He's only played 76 games, but he's a real important part of our team. We'll get him done."...
"Our goal going into 2014-15 is, hopefully, we can compete with the top teams in the East, with Boston and Tampa Bay, and Montreal, which went to the final four. We've got a tough division. We're trying to compete for a playoff spot, be a contender.

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.
