"We are going to be aggressive," Holland told the News. "I like a lot about our team, but we'd like to add some pieces."
The Wings have around $18 million in available salary cap space to spend, and while trades may also be an option, Holland won't be going that route until he has a clearer picture as to where his team stands with some of the league's top free agents.
"Our staff will be in the office and we'll contact the players we are interested in," Holland said. "We'll make our calls and begin the process. We'll be ready to go."
Tomorrow, Parise will be in Mississauga, Ontario (just outside of Toronto) at the offices of his agent, Wade Arnott, who works with Newport Sports, heading by Don Meehan, where they're expected to field several offers.
Failing to sign Parise and/or Suter, the Wings could shift their focus to other players like Shane Doan, Matt Carle, Jason Garrison and Alexander Semin.
