In Red Wings Land
NHL trade deadline: Detroit Red Wings are sellers with next year in mind | Freep
“I call this tire-kicking season,” Holland said. “I’ve been a buyer, where you call all the teams and see who’s available and get a feel for the price. Now I’m a seller and if there’s a deal, we’ll do it. At the same time, we have to look at the players we have towards 2019, because we need to be more competitive.”
The closer we get to the NHL trade deadline + the more we hear from Ken Holland = the less confident I am that the Red Wings will acquire any assets of substance at the end the month.
