Working The Phones Soon

from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

The Detroit Red Wings wrapped up five days of organizational meetings Monday in Florida, where many areas were covered from amateur to professional ranks.

The most pressing topic: What to do by the Feb. 25 trade deadline.

The Red Wings, 13 points out of the final playoff spot, will be sellers. To what extent remains to be seen. They have some pending unrestricted free agents that would draw interest, namely Gustav Nyquist and Jimmy Howard.

The Red Wings, according to someone with knowledge of the situation, have set a high asking price for each player – a first-round pick. They don’t expect to get that for either.

That’s why they will try to re-sign Howard and Nyquist.

Nothing is on the front burner, but general manager Ken Holland should begin working the phones in earnest during the team’s nine-day hiatus (the All-Star break and their bye week), which follows the upcoming three-game Western Canada trip.

About Abel to Yzerman

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.
