Red Wings Set To Begin Free Agent Meetings

It looks to be a potentially busy off season for the Detroit Red Wings. There are a handful of players including Nicklas Lidstrom who could be retired or gone from the team by the time next season begins and the Wings need to potentially find ways to keep their team among the best in the NHL.

Starting over the weekend, the Wings will begin to hold meetings between the brains of the organization in order to plan out the future and build the team into a better squad than it is today.

General manager Ken Holland, assistant general manager Jim Nill, senior vice president Jimmy Devellano, salary cap-ologist Ryan Martin, head coach Mike Babcock, scouts, including Mark Howe and former players-turned-advisers like Chris Chelios and Kris Draper all will gather to "have a conversation about our team," as Holland put it.

The Wings have already been rumored to be looking at huge names like Ryan Suter and Zach Parise even before free agency opens in July. They have a few free agents of their own to deal with as well, including Kyle Quincey and Justin Abdelkader.
