Red Wings staying the course

With injuries becoming a common thing in Detroit these days, Red Wings GM Ken Holland isn't gearing up to press any panic buttons just yet.

Johan Franzen, Brian Rafalski, Jason Williams, Niklas Kronwall, Valtteri Filppula and Andreas Lilja are all presently injured.

The Red Wings have struggled not only to replace those players, but to get their healthy athletes performing at an elite level.

Henrik Zetterberg is averaging a point-per-game, however star center Pavel Datsyuk has only notched six goals and 20 points in 28 games this season.

Holland is quietly looking around the league for some outside help, but he is not hard pressed to make a trade.

[ From the Editor ]
Unless a great offer falls right into his lap, Holland won't be making any moves at this stage of the season. He's going to wait it out until his players return to the lineup. He could, however, be active closer to the trade deadline. -- David Pagnotta
