Ansar Khan with an update on some of the injured and some of the Olympians...
“It appears Weiss is not ready to go; he felt some soreness, trainers decided to hold him back,” Holland said. “We wanted to get him a couple of games in Grand Rapids. Not sure if he’ll play in Montreal or play in Milwaukee with Grand Rapids on Wednesday.”
Kindl suffered a sprained MCL on Feb. 3 vs. Vancouver. He practiced during the break.
“Kindl is very questionable for Wednesday,” Holland said. “If he doesn’t play Wednesday, then he won’t play Thursday (at Ottawa).”...
Niklas Kronwall and Jonathan Ericsson, as well as forwards Daniel Alfredsson and Gustav Nyquist, were given the day off Tuesday after playing in the gold medal game for Sweden on Sunday (3-0 loss to Canada). But they will be ready to play Wednesday....
Holland had no update on Johan Franzen, who was hoping to be cleared on Monday after missing 22 of the past 23 games with a concussion.
Pavel Datsyuk was scheduled to land in Detroit on Monday and practice Tuesday after being given a few days off to spend in Russia after the Olympics. Datsyuk played in all five games for Russia, after appearing in two games for the Red Wings before the break, but it’s not a given that he’ll be ready for Wednesday.
“He wasn’t 100 percent before the Olympics,” Holland said. “I want to see how Pav is feeling.”

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.
