Red Wings general manager Ken Holland met with the agents for potential unrestricted free-agent forwards Damien Brunner, Valtteri Filppula and Daniel Cleary over the weekend, but progress on new deals was slow.

All three can become unrestricted free agents on July 5.

There was speculation leading into the weekend the Red Wings would trade Filppula’s rights, but that didn’t happen.

Holland will deal with the logjam of forwards this week.
