I have a sneaking suspicion we might move Brad Stuart. He's been great, but he's an unrestricted free agent after this year and I've heard his wife has basically told him he has to sign with a West Coast team. Might as well get something for his value before we lose him. Perhaps Stuart and someone else in a deal for Selanne?

anybody know what side Quincey usually plays on and how that fits with Ericsson, Kindl, and Commie?


I've asked this twice and everyone is ignoring the question! Can someone answer this? I've seen on youtube he plays left mostly from the highlights I've seen.

Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

He is too valuable for the playoffs. His rights will likely be traded after the season.

If Selanne is traded, it will only be at his request to the team he chooses. The Ducks will still benefit, but he will likely be traded at below market value.

Shoots left and can line up on either side.

Nobody is answering you because people on here don't watch enough hockey to be able to tell and are basing this trade on the Kyle Quincey from three years ago.

Lets look at this short term fellas: top 4 D-man playing in the 3rd pairing for us in exchange for a pick whom we wouldn't see for at least 4 years......

I love this pickup

I completely agree! Piche wasn't a NHL player. as for the pick....we like our picks more seasoned ( like 210th overall :)

Gotta say, I like this trade because hopefully the Wings will have the 30th pick this year. Know what I'm saying?
I trust the Wings scouts; I trust Holland.
Q is young, and I agree with the the person who posted that Q is on par with Stuart.

I'm glad to see Quincey back. If I recall correctly, Meech leapfrogged him on the depth charts partly due to injuries to Q. I seem to remember him breaking his hand in training camp one year and having lower back issues the other year.

His buttslide on the bench rail in the 2007 playoffs was just awesome, and I think he will give an extra spark in the blueline since he is still hungry and seems to be thrilled to be back in the winged wheel.
It's pronounced "Zim" not "Exim". Aw heck with it, just call me Scott.

So why are the Wings giving up a first round pick for a guy they drafted in the 4th round and then wound up waving for nothing? If he was that good to begin with they would not of waived him but now you give up a first for a cast off? Is Kenny Holland just feeling sympathy for Stevie Yzerman or does our team not believe in drafting in the first round? Brian Burke wouldn't of made this deal for God's sake!



For one Brian Burke is not even in the same class as Kenny holland. Quincy was put on waivers because they believed in meech. Little did they know Quincy would pan out the way he did. Some players take a little time to develope. Seems that will be the case with kindl who has amazing upside. Quincy is a huge upgrade over a washed up paved kubina not to mention he already knows the wings system from being here before.. Holland traded our first cause he lands big time players later in the draft. look. What he did last yr in the draft. Traded out of the first. Land Tomas jurco iin the second.

Kind of funny. As soon as we heard Detroit was rumored to be interested in Kubina it became pretty obvious we'd be trading with Yzerman somehow. Including them in a 3 way deal makes sense. Also the "out of left field" move I was predicting, not to toot my own horn. ;)

At any rate, after Quincey's initial stint in Colorado I lost track of him. I assume he's still a solid defenseman? And to people getting bent out of shape over a 1st rounder, it'd be late enough in the draft to essentially be a 2nd rounder. After the first 10 or 15 picks there's little difference between a late 1st and a 3rd round pick.

Kind of funny how he winds up back here though. Not going to say I'm unhappy, depth is good, but I'm not sure exactly how he helps us. That's probably because I haven't followed him since he left though so I'm not sure what he brings to the table.

You've been very unhappy that Holland hasn't made any moves over the past three seasons. Aren't you happy now, or is "I wanted the other guy" the best you can say?

Rather underwhelmed if this is all that happens - hoping to see Holland just setting up for something great.

Quincey isn't bad (mainly plays on the left side for Colorado, by the way), but I would rather see the first go to a forward, as I think Kindl/Commodore/Smith/Janik was plenty of depth already on D. Makes me think/hope Holland is now wheeling a defenseman for a forward upgrade... he did get this one done pretty early.

Having Ericsson and Quincey making a combined $7m next year does not thrill me.

I'm sorry you can not understand my frustration of the fact our GM waived this guy for nothing just to turn around and pay a 1st rounder to get him back.



But I'm glad everything is sunshine and lolipops for ya :).

I understand a bit and it frustrates me too, but st the end of the day a player needs ice time to develop. 3 years ago would you slot him before lids, rafalski, Stuart, kronwall? We couldn't give him the ice time and he was not the player he is now. I know it sucks but we basically gave up a pick for someone to develop him for us and give him 20+ minutes a night... Something we never could and still will struggle to give him. Quincey would not be the player he is today if he remained in our system. I firmly believe that.

Glad to have Quincey back! :thumbup: Wasn't too confident Piche was gonna make it anyway, however, a 1st rounder?

23 points in 54 games is a plus. He is -1, but that doesn't worry me too much, considering it was with Colorado. I had a feeling Downie was available. I'm jealous of the Avs a little <_<

Now, it sounds like he is here to stay a while. Stuart's replacement? Likely, but I don't think it would be wise for Ken to deal Stuart at the deadline. He's an important component of our defense. In addition, I don't think Commodore is gonna attract much interest. That leaves Kindl. He will draw interest, but do we wanna get rid of him at the deadline? Well, I don't think we're gonna roll with 8 defensemen. I think Stuart will likely be dealt after the season is over, so we can at least get something for him.

It is clear Ken is not done. I'm excited to see what he can do. I heard scouts were at the Sharks/Jackets game.

During the broadcast against the Hawks tonight, Kenny was interviewed and he practically sounded like he was in love with Quincey. Talking about wanting to sign him to a possible long term deal in the off season. Anyone else catch that, or am I imagining things?
