It's Detroit or bust for Holmstrom
TheFourthPeriod.com

The Detroit News reports that Red Wings GM Ken Holland and veteran forward Tomas Holmstrom are expected to discuss the return of the gritty winger for one more season.

Although the 39-year-old is looking to return for another season, he will not bring his talents anywhere else than in Detroit, denying a report from the Swedish website HockeyExpressen.se that suggested otherwise.

"It's playing in Detroit, or nowhere else," Holmstrom said.

Holmstrom keeps weighing his options as he wonders if he could manage the toil of another NHL season.

"I appreciate Kenny giving me this time to think about things," Holmstrom said. "I'm training, I'm working out. But a lot of it depends on my health, my knees."

It remains to be seen if the Wings, who have made a few additions this summer by acquiring Mikael Samuelsson and Jordin Tootoo in free agency, will have room for Holmstrom for an additional season.

"I think so," Holmstrom answered when asked if he thinks there's still room for him. "If I play my game, play my role, I know I can help this team.”

In 74 games with the Wings last year, Holmstrom posted 11 goals and 13 assists for 24 points, and 40 penalty minutes.
