Via RedWingsFeed, the Free Press's Helene St. James reports that the Red Wings did meet with Vincent Lecavalier this morning, and now they'll wait to find out where Lecavalier wants to land: The Wings are among about a dozen NHL teams who think Lecavalier would be a good addition, which will lead to eager bidding for his services. Holland described his meeting with Lecavalier as a sort of “feeling out” situation. “I talked to him about our organization, where he’d fit in,” Holland told the Free Press. “If he’s interested in us, we’ll talk later.” St. James says that the Wings probably aren't willing to give Lecavalier a long-term deal...

Red Wings overnight report: Lecavalier and UFA talk take spotlight away from Wings’ draft haul

Beware, Wings fans, auto-play clips lurk within: After more "rumblings" and "insider" talk than anything else at the draft (the Wings' 18-for-20-and-58 swap was more indicative of the day's events than any other trade), I'm not thrilled starting this overnight report discussing the Red Wings' courtship of one marquee cap compliance buy-out player...

Red Wings overnight report: the Wings’ summertime moves will play out slowly; more draft talk
