Terrible

I just don't see this as a terrible move price maybe a bit steep but he will be a huge up grade over anybody on our 3rd pairing.

I would trade Thomas McCollum and/or Landon Ferraro for Kyle Quincey in a heartbeat.

I don't think Kindl will be moved as the team can carry eight defencemen because of the injured forwards.

I'm quite sure Holland has no problem in re-signing Quincey so this trade is also about getting ready for the departures of Lidström and Stuart. They might return for next season but will probably be gone in few years anyhow. Wings have now five good young defencemen in White, Quincey, Ericsson, Kindl and Smith.

McCollum has no trade value.....

We might be able to get a bag of used pucks for him.

How does his style of play (defensive minded or more offensive minded) compare to Stuart? Or is he more like White? I have not really watched him play, so I was looking for some input on his type of play other than just his stats.

More offensive minded. Not as many big hits. Can and will fight.

Yeah I think I like Quincey on the right point instead of Ericsson. Ericsson likes to pass, Quincey at least has more of an instinct to shoot and has shown he can hit the net more often than Ericsson. Then again Ericsson doesn't really shoot that much.

Quincey says that he played with Ericsson in GR but I don't particularly remember them playing on the same pairing myself. Then again, the lineup in GR is always changing.

I think I'm going to like him just fine. Do you guys feel he will sign a long term deal with us if the rest of this season/playoffs seems like a good fit? (perhaps this was covered already in this topic, but I have not read every page)

I like Quincey a lot, he's a big body, he can hit, he can play heavy minutes (25+ if need be) and obviously in all situations. I am positive he will re-sign at seasons end but if not, as he is an RFA we get compensation, likely at worst a 2nd round pick.

That is why I can't believe people are so upset about this trade. I'm willing to bet we traded a 1st for a guy who will be here as a 2nd pairing defenceman for a decade, sounds good to me.

I have a good feeling about Quincey too. Kenny said that he is not a rental. Safe to assume that he will be resigned.

Go Wings !

I trust the Wings managment. Quincey has proven himself to be a good NHL defense men. You can never have to many of them. I was sad to see him go and I'm glad to have him back.

I'm thinking he'll want to stay in Detroit for quite some time (by far the best team he's played for)...Wouldn't surprise me if Quincey, and Holland work out a 4, or 5 year deal.

Probably because the Wings already drafted this guy originally, and then waived him 3 years ago. Now Holland gives up a first-rounder for something that he already had a relatively short time ago.

Discounting that history...it's much easier to accept.

As far as Piche, I am not upset about losing him at all...this guy really lit it up playing for Rimouski a few years ago, seemed like a great prospect....and then spent two seasons in Toledo after not cutting it in GR. Then showed this season that he couldn't make it in the AHL, yet again. Bye, Piche! :thumbup:

It's only one game but I wonder if Ericsson will be his dman partner for the rest of the year. Did he play on the left side for the majority of the time? I can't recall.
