According to Freep.com:
The Red Wings finalized a two-year contract with free-agent forward Tomas Holmstrom for $3.75 million, the Free Press learned Thursday.
The deal will pay Holmstrom $2.25 million next season, $1.5 million in 2011-12.
The salary-cap hit is $1.875 million a year. Holmstrom is expected to sign today or Monday.
Holmstrom, 37, has been with the Wings since 1996, helping them win four Stanley Cups with his hard-nosed play.
He worked his way up from being a fourth-line player with power-play duty to being a first-line regular and power-play stalwart. He has scored at least 20 goals in four of the past five seasons.
The vast majority of his goals are deflections or redirections from in front of the net, an area where Holmstrom spends so much time he has to wear extra padding to deal with the shoving and stick-work he absorbs as punishment. The abuse that often leaves him walking with a limp is something teammates delightfully refer to as “Homer’s pimp walk.”
