Wings to make splash in FA?
DETROIT (AP) - Ken Holland didn't expect to get lucky enough in the NHL draft to select an instant-impact player.
In free agency, though, the Detroit general manager wants to add at least a couple standouts with enough talent and experience to help the franchise right away.
``We're going to be active and very involved in free agency because we have cap space and holes we'd like to fill,'' Holland said. ``But to be successful, you have to draft and develop guys.''
