Ian White has reached out to Red Wings GM Ken Holland and coach Mike Babcock as he continues to spend games in the press box.
White is scheduled to be a healthy scratch for a fifth straight game on Thursday, but he hasn't asked for a trade. "No, we’re not there yet. We’re not there yet," White said. "But I was just voicing this is game five, and you play so many games in such a fast period that it can get away from you pretty quick. You look, after the weekend, it’ll be seven straight games if you don’t play. And for (Babcock's) sake, where do I fit? And for him, we have (Carlo) Colaiacovo coming back right away, too. So you just try to get a determination of where (Babcock) thinks you fit and where Ken thinks you fit -- now and going forward, as well." White, who is capable of being a solid offensive defenseman, has just two points in 14 games this season.
