Wings GM Ken Holland feels newly signed forward Frans Nielsen is a 200-foot player.
"He’s been in the New York Islanders as a top two-line center," Holland said. "He’s had a lot of responsibility, offensively and defensively, we feel he’s a 200-foot player. He fits the type of player we look for here in Detroit and quality person. We did a lot of checking and talked to a lot of people and everything we got on and off the ice was top notch." The 32-year-old had 20 goals and 52 points in 81 games last season. Jul 3 - 11:22 AM
