Holmstrom is 37 and he wants a multi-year deal. That's probably not a deal-breaker. Holmstrom, after an injury-plagued 2008-09 season, bounced back with 25 goals in the regular season and another four in the playoffs.
As diligent as Holmstrom trains year-round, and as obviously vital as he is to the Wings offense, a two- or three-year deal isn't completely irrational.
The sticky issue will be how much cap space the Wings want Holmstrom eating up in that second and third year.
