General manager Ken Holland is working his way through exit meetings with free agents, most of whom won’t be back with the Detroit Red Wings.

Holland said Monday that he has met with pending unrestricted free agents Todd Bertuzzi, David Legwand, Kyle Quincey and Jonas Gustavsson.

Holland said he told them he’ll reach out to their agents later this month with final decisions, but simple math reveals, for example, Bertuzzi won’t be back, because there isn’t room on the roster for him. Ditto on Legwand, a trade-deadline acquisition, and Mikael Samuelsson. The Wings already have 11 forwards under contract for next season, with Tomas Jurco the only one eligible to be sent to the minors without waivers.

Quincey isn’t likely to be back, either, as the Wings are looking to upgrade on the back end — and because, as a 28-year-old defenseman, he’s likely to get considerable offers as an unrestricted free agent. There’s some interest in retaining Gustavsson but, at the moment, Holland is evaluating whether prospect Petr Mrazek would be a better option as a backup.

The Wings are waiting to hear whether Daniel Alfredsson, 41, wants to play another season before deciding if he fits into plans for 2014-15.
