Announcement On Red Wings' Backup Goalie Not Coming Until Next Week

Detroit Red Wings general manager Ken Holland told Ansar Khan on Thursday that fans shouldn't expect to hear anything about who the team's backup goaltender will be until next week. Originally the plan was for Holland to meet with Chris Osgood in British Columbia on Thursday to talk about next season, but now that discussion won't take place until this weekend.

As a result, Holland isn't planning to make a decision until next week.

"I anticipate early next week I'll know what I'm going to do in goal,'' Holland said.

If things don't work out with Osgood for some reason, chances are Ty Conklin will get a contract offer. The Red Wings have been in talks with his agent, and Holland says other goalies' agents have been in contact as well.

Holland also says that the Red Wings have time on their hands, so there is no need to rush a decision. Even so, it would be nice for all involved to have this situation resolved sometime soon.
