Wings working the trade lines
TheFourthPeriod.com

The Red Wings are exploring the trade market and GM Ken Holland is hoping to pull the trigger on at least one deal dealing up to this weekend's NHL Draft.

Holland has been actively trying to re-sign some of his main free agents, but he's also been focused on the trade wire, as he looks to improve his roster for next season.

"I'm going to explore a trade or two," Holland told the Detroit Free Press. "Maybe a two-for-one deal, maybe a three-for-one, or three-for-two."

The Wings are looking for upgrades up front, and are willing to part with multiple forwards in order to get one back.

Meanwhile, if the Red Wings are unable to come to terms on a new contract with Valtteri Filppula, the Free Press claims the team will trade his rights.

Filppula, 29, is schedule to become an unrestricted free agent July 5.
