We’ve had some conversations,” Holmgren told the newspaper. “Nothing really in-depth to this point. I don’t really want to get into anything through the media. I’ll just talk to (Mason’s agent, Anton Thun) when the time comes to see what we can come up with.”
“We’ll see what happens. If something happens, great. If something is going to get done, I’d prefer it to be a short process, that way it’s not dragging on. At the end of the day, that’s not really my choice.”
