On signing a forward

It's interesting that general manager Ken Holland specified that he's looking for a forward to sign "short-term." I'm wondering if that means that someone like Brian Rolston isn't coming to Detroit then because he'd be someone who signs for multiple years.

Rolston, a 35-year-old Flint native, was with the Minnesota Wild the past three seasons, scoring more than 30 goals each season. Rolston's rights were traded by Minnesota to Tampa Bay this week, but when the Lightning couldn't sign him, Rolston became an unrestricted free agent at noon.

Reports are that Rolston had narrowed his choices to Detroit and the Rangers, but it's likely he's looking for and will get a multiple-year deal.
