Tomas Holmstrom Still Hasn't Decided On Retirement

Unrestricted free agent forward Tomas Holmstrom has planned to meet with the Detroit Red Wings to discuss his future in the NHL -- he has already revealed that the Red Wings are the only NHL team he would consider signing with-- but recently he told Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press that he will take his time with the decision:

"I have not decided what I'm going to do," Holmstrom said [on Friday]. "I will take my time."

The 39-year-old veteran is playing the waiting game along with everyone else as the NHL and NHLPA attempt to work out a new Collective Bargaining Agreement while the Sept. 15 expiration date on the current CBA creeps closer. According to the piece by St. James, Holmstrom's family wants him to keep playing, but he is still determined to take his time and make sure it is the right decision to return.
