likes/knows quincey hahaha that makes me laugh liked him so much they put him on waivers for derek meech ... good move


You clearly weren't paying attention when they waived him. Q played his way off the roster while Meech was playing much better.

I came on to see the datsyuk injury and was treated to this gem. Quincey is an improvement over anyone not named Kronwall and Lidstrom and is on par with stuart.

Not a fan of this one. Only thing I can think of is IF Kindl is out the door soon. I still want Shea Weber.

Looks like Quincey wasn't well liked by his team mates, still can't get my head around this deal.

And we even tried trading him and no one wanted him. He had one average playoffs and then with his poor attitude and play he played himself out of Detroit.

I think it's a good trade. Quincey is a good dman and is still young. I'd rather have him than a 34 year old Kubina. Now we just need a forward and we're set. :thumbup:

He's still just 26 and he's an upgrade over Ericsson, Kindl and Commodore. I'd say he's worth of a late first rounder.



Quincey is 26, and he's RFA.... Remember, nobody knows if Brad Stuart returns next season, this is a way of covering a spot. But there will be logjam, especially if they use Brendan Smith next season as well.... Prices are a little high when the Wings are involved at the deadline, everyone should know that.

I may be in the minority here, but I think this is a nice deal. Kyle is a big upgrade over Kindl, he is much better (maybe not tougher) than Commodore, he will be a nice addition here. Welcome back Kyle!

and for those who think a first was too much, not only is the first gonna be at least in the bottom 4, it may be #30 overall, just like everyone is saying, but consider this, when was the last time Holland even used his first? The first is so low every year he usually trades it away for another 2nd round pick. Which he has done at least the last two season's. This could mean Holland isn't done, he has said Smith will be coming up soon to get some playing time, maybe Kindl is on his way out, who know's. But as minor as this deal was, it is a little exciting. Quincey will make an impression, trust me. Where are all the folks that were complaining just last week about how we lost him to waivers a few years ago. They should be happy!

Now please Holland, SNIPER, POWER PLAY SPECIALISTS, PLEASE!!!!

I think it's a good trade. Quincey is a good dman and is still young. I'd rather have him than a 34 year old Kubina. Now we just need a forward and we're set. :thumbup:

THIS! :clap: :thumbup:

Here is what really doesn't make sense. The wings gave up a pick AND Sebadtian Piche. The lightning were giving up Steve downie essentially for those 2 assets. I don't pay much attention to Tampa but he is pretty good right? So what gives?

Seriously doubt that we get him...... They wont trade with us, and I'm not sold on Holland giving a player 8 mill per season...

His road roommate Kevin Porter denied this.

Holland will discuss the trade in detail on Red Wings Live at 7:30 EST on whatever channel the game's on.

how many years ago was that ? and he had a subpar preseason agreed.... If they had it to do over again, im pretty sure Meech would have been gone.

What's this deal about Quincey's poor attitude and him being a problem in the locker room? I'd like to get quotes with names and not gossip and rumours.

pierre mcguire just said detroit has alot of travis moens and cant see them going for him but rather a skilled forward .... ya well thats where the 1st rounder would of come in handy , dont see it happening now

and he also said detroit was in for rick nash bigtime and really liked him but dropped out when the demands got ridiculously high .... thank god

I like this trade on a few levels; He's an upgrade in the 5-6 pairing. He can eat minutes. He definitely upgrades the depth the Wings will need in the war that will be the Western Conference playoffs. He's a RFA not a rental. It's barely a dent in the Red Wings cap space.

It also shows the Wings are thinking "Death or Glory."

A smart reasoned trade I think. After a possible President's trophy where would that #1 pick be exactly?
