"Datsyuk and Zetterberg are considered part of the team's young nucleus.
"I've talked to agents for both players recently," Holland said. "We're not close to a deal."
The Wings' payroll is at nearly $29 million, leaving them with about $9 million in cap space. (Holland has said he would like $1 million in wiggle room.) More than half of that will go toward signing Datsyuk, likely for around $3.5 million, and Zetterberg, who is seeking $2.5 million annually."
