Ken Holland On Possible Trades

02/24/2019 at 8:04pm EST

from Ted Kulfan of the Detroit News,

Holland has been receiving the “tire kicking” phone calls from other teams. But how serious those other teams are about doing a trade, remains to be seen.

“Do I get lots of calls about lots of people? Yes, but I don’t know what that means,” Holland said. “I don’t know if somebody’s (a prospective acquisition) ninth on their depth chart, if he’s second on their depth chart. So what ends up happening from a managerial perspective is you call around.

“I call it tire-kicking. You start to talk about players, Have I got teams kicking tires? Yes, I don’t know what the tire-kicking means. I’m going to know between now and Monday.”

It doesn’t sound as if Holland expects to come to a contract extension with either Howard or Nyquist.

“I would say to you that (we’re) just going to see what happens on the trade front between now and Monday,” Holland said.

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
