Holland has had preliminary discussions with Howard Gourwitz, the agent for Tomas Holmstrom, in an effort to re-sign the 37-year forward.
They will resume talks after the Red Wings' current road trip, hoping to get a deal done before the start of the playoffs, when Holland postpones all contract discussions.
"I'm very happy, I'm sure Ken is happy about (Holmstrom's play), too," Gourwitz said. "Now, we have to sit down and take care of business."
Great! When Holmstrom is healthy he is ultra-effective. It would be great to have him signed to a 1 or 2 year deal before the playoffs. Get er done Kenny!
