However, Holland, who shored up his blueline last week by acquiring former Wings prospect Kyle Quincey in a three-way trade involving Steve Yzerman in Tampa Bay and the Colorado Avalanche, does not mind coming out of Monday's deadline with his roster intact.
"If we do nothing between now and Monday, I'm OK with it," he said.
With a small pool of available players and the expiring collective bargaining agreement, the buyers far outnumber the sellers at this year's deadline. The Wings have also focused their attention on inaccessible players, such as Florida Panthers' Mikael Samuelsson, Anaheim Ducks' Teemu Selanne and Edmonton Oilers' Ryan Smyth, who are all staying put.
Meanwhile, Holland keeps shopping to improve the club's penalty kill and could be eyeing a checking-line veteran such as Travis Moen of the Montreal Canadiens, Paul Gaustad of the Buffalo Sabres or Sammy Pahlsson of the Columbus Blue Jackets as a rental.
"You can always add to your team -- always," forward Henrik Zetterberg acknowledged. "I don't think there's any team that couldn't add something to get better."
The Wings could be busier in the off-season as they will be nearly $22 million under the ceiling with 16 players signed for the 2012-13 season.
Holland will have room to add another top-six forward and could manage to bolster his blueline, depending on what happens with two of his top defensemen as Nick Lindstrom could choose retirement and Brad Stuart may opt to sign closer to his family back in California.
Either way, the Wings have been mentioned among the teams eyeing Nashville Predators' Ryan Suter, who is set to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1, or possibly even pending restricted free agent Shea Weber, as a new cornerstone piece on defense.
