Ansar Khan reports at MLIVE that the Wings are "close" to a new deal with Holmstrom, but nothing is set in stone, yet.
Forward Tomas Holmstrom likely will be the next Detroit Red Wings player to re-sign with the club, possibly next week.
"I'm sure we're going to get a deal done," Howard Gourwitz, Holmstrom's agent, said. "We're looking at a two-year term, and so are the Red Wings. I think we have an agreement in concept. We're very close."
I'm not sure where Jennifer Hammond and Greg Brady are getting their information, but I think Holmstrom's agent would know best. Unless he's putting up a front until all the details are ironed out and the Red Wings front office wants to go public with it, it sounds like we won't hear any real confirmation of a new deal tonight.
