Wings waiting on decisions with unrestricted free agents

DETROIT >> As far as the Wings’ pending free agents, Wings general manager Ken Holland said he probably won’t decide for another month on them.

The one that seems to be a lock to come back is Daniel Alfredsson, but only if he feels he can play another season.

“We had an exit meeting with Alfie,” Holland said. “He needs time to determine if he’s got the passion and desire to play again and if his body will let him do the things he wants to do.”

Holland told Alfredsson, 41, they wouldn’t be making a decision until the middle of June.

“There’s lots of time,” Holland said.

The other unrestricted free agents include David Legwand, Kyle Quincey, Jonas Gustavsson, Todd Bertuzzi, Daniel Cleary and Mikael Samuelsson.

“I told Legwand, Quincey and Gustavsson we’re going to take time to have internal meetings,” Holland said. “In late May or early June I’ll reach out to their agents to let them know if we have a contract offer.”

Tomas Tatar and Riley Sheahan are both restricted free agents.
