Wings looking to bolster up

The Red Wings may be sitting in first place of the Western Conference, but it will not stop GM Ken Holland from adding some grit prior to the trade deadline, the Globe and Mail reports.

Before Tuesday's 3-1 victory over the Flames in Calgary, Holland spoke about the areas he was looking to reinforce with the help of $5 million in available cap space.

"Critics of the Red Wings say we're not big enough, not gritty enough. We'd like to add some depth, especially on defence," Holland told the Globe and Mail.

However, Holland is not looking to deal away his early-round draft picks as the Wings have been more hesitant to part with their first- and second-round picks since the lockout.

The Wings could investigate the possibility of a trading for Nashville Predators defenseman Ryan Suter, Edmonton Oilers forward Ales Hemsky or New Jersey Devils captain Zach Parise, but only if it can add to what the club already has, not remodel it.

"We're looking to see who's out there," Holland admitted.
