People are going to grumble about this because of the situation, I think. If we were adding a 26-year-old RFA with 30-35 point potential and he DIDN'T have a history with the team, people would likely be more receptive to the idea.

ughhhhh i dont know if anyone else is pissed off about this deal as i am , quincey never should of left in the first place ! , i remember being pissed off cause he was 6'2 and i didnt wanna get rid of a big guy in the back and they put him on waivers knowing he'd be gone

Now we get him back but give away a first round pick , wtf??? kenny never throws away a 1st rounder and id be ok with it if we were gonna get like a pretty big name player but quincey???? seriously?? quincey is worth a 1st rounder?? that just blows my mind

And just because he got like 25 pts with colorado doesnt mean he will here , he will clearly be in the 3rd pairing ... im a little pissed off ..... and i do think with this move and brendan smith coming up next year jakub kindl is as good as gone , i expect him to be dealt soon

this trade had to been a favour to stevie y , much rather have had steve downie at this point

At this point in the trade I don't think it's a bad deal at all. I remember that a bunch of us, including me, were griping about letting him go and watching how well he did with the Avs. It ain't obviously over yet, but right now I'm happy he's coming back HOME.

"He even ate with women who at that time were accorded the same status as the family donkey. Are we willing to break bread with, say, child sex slaves, transgender teens and undocumented workers? Because when Jesus comes back to Earth, that's where he'll be hanging."
You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.

I think Kindl was being showcased for trade deadline. I expect Wings to move him soon.

That's what I'm thinking too. Bringing in Quincey means both Kindl and Commie are going to be sitting, so I'd expect further moves from Detroit before the deadline.

Am i missing something here? How are people not more upset by this trade? I mean i know that he has improved since he left here getting to play more minutes elsewhere, but i just don't see how he is worth a 1st round pick. I know that the draft is a craps shoot and you can bust big time in the first round, especially late in the first round like we are projected to be but still, how is this not a bigger concern to people? We have so few early picks usually anyways, and to just give up our first rounder to get quincey back kind of bugs me. He may help out on the blue line and give us another guy for our 2nd PP unit, but was he worth a first rounder?

Also, does this deal make anyone else think that Holland couldn't make a deal for anyone else better? And he kind of jumped on it just to fill the void with the best he could? Should we not expect any other upgrades before the 27th? I mean he basically sent away our first round draft pick which i was hoping was going to be used in a package along with a player or two to land someone bigger at the deadline. Now all we have left as trade bait are our own roster players that most believe teams are interested in, and our few exceptional prospects that teams would find appealing but are players we shouldn't really part with. Im confused, upset and perplexed by this trade.

Am i the only one??

quincey is a huge replacement over kindl, what if holland is expecting another team to overpay for kindl or someone else? (never know)

My friend text me and I had to rush onto here, and Twitter. He said he was in 'Quincey shock'.

Young and can play the second PP pretty well, has 23 points this season. Not a big tough guy, but can throw a hit and has some size. Not a complete ***** anyways.

Well, pack your bags Kindl, theres no way the wings go with Kindl and Commodore scratched the rest of the way. Unless a complete shocker happens and Stuart is moved?

A really late first in this years draft isnt awful

Stuart is what I thought of as well. Kindl is the obvious guy to move but I don't think it would return much without yet more picks and prospects. Stuart to LA, some nice player in return, rather than another role playing D man or Penalty Killer, that we already have enough of to be honest

This is what annoys me the most about this trade. I don't mind giving up a first round pick, but for Quincey? C'mon...

LOGISTICS OF A DETROIT RED WINGS FIRST ROUND PICK:

-Not a sure thing (late 1st round picks in the NHL aren't necessarily toss-ups, but they are far from a sure thing)

-We wouldn't see whomever they drafted for AT LEAST 4 years anyway; so in the short term this is a good deal.

I like the move as far as bringing him back goes, but I'm a bit on the fence about sending a first rounder the other way. I thought for sure our first rounder would go towards bringing a forward in. I just hope we don't have to trade Tatar, Nyquist, or Smith if we make another move.

Either way, looking forward to seeing Quincey in the line up. Definitely an improvement on our blue line :thumbup:

Looks like some kid named Quincey is thanking his lucky stars.
Agent to Kyle, 'You've been traded from Col to Tampa.'
Quincey, "Oh ...".
Agent, "Wait, you've just been dealt to Detroit" ...
Quincey, "OMG, is this for real? Tell me I'm not dreaming!"

Stuart has probably told Holland that he will not be returning and this is why Holland get Quincey to be Stuarts replacement next year.

1st rounder for Quincey...

We are going to pick at last place so it isn't that bad, our 1st rounders are kind of very, very late (which is a great news for us). Let's trade Kindl to Islanders for their 2nd and it makes sense.

does quincey play right side? i know he shoots left but we don't really need another guy on the left side with big e still around and kronwall and lids considering kindl leaves.

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

LA's biggest need is offense, can't imagine he'd end up there.

I think Kindl is much more likely.
