The Red Wings soon may have three of their restricted free agents under contract, according to GM Ken Holland.
“I’ve talked a lot with them the last two, three days and feel we’re pretty close,’’ Red Wings general manager Ken Holland said.
The three RFAs in question are Drew Miller, Patrick Eaves and Derek Meech. Meech actually filed for arbitration on Monday, although it seems he will likely be signed before his hearing. Miller and Eaves decided not to file for arbitration.
As for the other noteworthy RFAs -- Justin Abdelkader and Darren Helm -- they will likely not be signed until later in the summer.
