Wings GM Ken Holland likes new CBA rule

DETROIT — The new rule in the CBA gives teams 48 hours prior to the start of free agency to make a pitch to potential free agents and allows players time to make up their mind is something Wings general maanger Ken Holland likes a lot.

“It’s an opportunity for every team to reach out to unrestricted free agents and make a case,” Holland said. “It’s good for players. In the past players get calls at noon on July 1 and have to make a decision within two hours. That’s a big decision for a player and club. From the club’s perspective, you’d like the opportunity to make contact and tell them about your program. It gives players a chance to hear from a number of teams. It’s a great part of the new CBA.”
