After those two, the pickings are slim for the Red Wings, who were looking to sign a top blueliner. Ryan Whitney, Marek Zidlicky, and Joe Corvo are among the best of what's left.
The Wings appeared to get burned last year too as it seemed like they were really counting on landing Suter. Being aggressive isn't really in Holland's nature but I wonder if he'll have a choice this off-season.
