Wings GM Ken Holland: "We’re going to see over the next six weeks if we can make something else happen." | Red Wings Front
Oh man. Ken Holland is happy with how is roster looks if he didn't make another move? Obviously he's still going to sign another defenseman. He HAS to. This team cannot go into the season with only six D. But I'm not holding my breath for that top six forward. It's a weird world when I'm expecting to be disappointed with the Red Wings next move. I hope I'm wrong.
