Holland cryptic, non-committal on plans for Wings

After three days of pro scouting meetings, Red Wings GM Ken Holland might have a plan in place, but he's not ready to reveal much. "I don't think we'll re-sign Mikael Samuelsson," Holland said Wednesday. "Beyond that, I haven't really reached out to any of their agents yet.
