Every Sunday I’ll bring you a recap of all the legitimate Red Wings-related transaction and signing rumors from the previous week. I see all this stuff anyway. I figured I might as well share it with you.
- Ken Holland and Danny DeKeyser were scheduled to talk this week about DeKeyser’s contract, according to the Windsor Star’s Bob Duff. DeKeyser is a restricted free agent. According to the Detroit Free Press’ Helene St. James, DeKeyser isn’t worried but wants a long-term deal.
- You already know this by now, but the Red Wings signed Ken Holland to a four-year extension. Holland said he briefly talked with Mike Babcock when he re-upped, exchanging texts, but the two talk further about a contract extension for the coach when the Red Wings reconvene for training camp.
- Khan also had Ken Holland tell him that Daniel Alfredsson will probably return this season but won’t play every game. In the same article, Holland said he wasn’t going to make any more free agent signings.
- The Hockey News has the latest roundup of Mike Green-to-Detroit rumors. ESPN analyst Katie Strang said she was surprised Green hasn’t been dealt yet, while her colleague, Craig Custance said he would be a “natural fit” in Detroit.
