The Wings were interested in Montreal Canadiens blueliner Hal Gill, but he was traded yesterday to the Nashville Predators.
Holland would like to add a reliable defenseman with Stanley Cup experience, and he has the salary cap space to make a significant move.
It's believed the Red Wings are one of the teams highly interested in Pavel Kubina of the Tampa Bay Lightning.
According to the Tampa Bay Times, Kubina will submit a list of five teams he's willing to accept a trade to, per the Lightning's request. It's unknown, at this point, if Detroit is on the list, though they're expected to be.
The Red Wings have also been linked to forwards Ales Hemsky of Edmonton, Travis Moen of Montreal, and Paul Gaustad of Buffalo.
