DETROIT(AP) - Red Wings General Manager Ken Holland has told forward Brett Hull that the team will not offer him another contract at this time.
 

"He gave us goal-scoring, superstar name recognition," Holland told the Detroit Free Press. "It was a great three years. Unfortunately we didn't have a very good playoff, there's going to be a new CBA, and also we're trying to get more speed."

The collective bargaining agreement between the NHL and the players association expires Sept. 15.

Hull, who turns 40 in August, could not be reached for comment.

Previously, Hull has expressed interest in playing in the reborn World Hockey Association, whose first commissioner will be his dad, Hall of Famer Bobby Hull. One of the eight teams in the league will be in Detroit.

Nobody else will sign him either. Nobody wants signed players just in case there is a play stoppage because they won't pay extra. Too bad hull was one of the greats too

i would be prepared to see this as one of the many changes and non-re-signes of this off-season, you dont want to pay extra money if there is no season.
