The Detroit Red Wings are among the busier teams in the NHL these days, as the trade deadline quickly approaches.

Red Wings GM Ken Holland has been engaged in several trade discussions involving a number of his players, multiple league sources have told TFP.

Though soon-to-be unrestricted free agent defenceman Mike Green has garnered the most attention, teams are currently balking at the asking price. While trade talks involving Green will pick up steam later this week, Holland’s focus may presently be on some of his other players.

Detroit forwards Luke Glendening, Tomas Tatar and Gustav Nyquist are among the players Holland has been having discussions about with other clubs.

The Toronto Maple Leafs, Dallas Stars and Tampa Bay Lightning are among the teams believed to be interested in Glendening, while the Nashville Predators have spoken with the Wings about Tatar, and the St. Louis Blues and San Jose Sharks have expressed interest in Nyquist.

Glendening and Tatar each have three-years left on their respective contracts after this season, while Nyquist has one-year remaining.

Nyquist also owns a full no-trade clause and would have to sign off on any trade the Red Wings attempt to complete.

Green and Nyquist currently rank among TFP's Top 30 Available Players List.
