Quincey vs. Stuart

Rate this topic

29 posts in this topic

Should Wings Keep Brad Stuart or Kyle Quincey or Both? Stuart has been a player on this team since the deadline of 07-08. He has always been a Loyal Defense men Offensively and Defensively. He is in his early thirties and his contract will be up this summer. I think that he will leave the Red Wings but i think he should stay. Kyle Quincey's contract will be up at the end of the year also. I think that Ken will keep him because of previous deadline players he has kept. He is young and a good second liner Defensemen but is getting ice time as a third liner. So Holland will most likely keep one as long as Lidstrom stays for next year which is a different topic.

In my Opinion they should keep Kyle Quincey.

Given from what I've read in the recent past online (mlive, freep etc.) the few times that Stuart and his situation is mentioned it looks like he already has one foot out the door. Just wants to be closer to family back in California. Totally understandable. So I'm not expecting him back.

Wouldn't be shocked if Qunicey is offered a multi-year deal. Not against it either.

If Lidstrom Retires which i think he will not because of the Winter classic. Holland will most likely sign both Defensmen (Quincey,Stuart) and probably another to keep the Red wIngs D rolling

Doesn't sound like Stuart wants to come back, but if he can be had, we should sign them both.

I don't think that is true... He has always said he wants to come back just the big family issue back in cali might force him to move back closer to home... There is no doubt Stuart would re-sign with the wings if he got the "OK" from his family, which sadly I don't think will happen

Quincey has still got many more years too go. Stuart not as many. Stuart will probably want a contract for the rest of his career around 3.5-4.5 Mill.

Well, first and foremost let's hope Lidstrom will go one more year. If he doesn't, then I think it's almost a certainty that Stuart will be re-signed. I know Brad wants to be with his family in California, but with the cap space we have I'm sure Holland will offer him more $ than any of the Cali teams. And the Red Wings 'playoff guarantee' year after year should also help sway his decision. Plus, the deal would likely be only 2-3 years tops, then he can go back to Cali.

I don't think it's really a question of Stuart or Quincey. From what I've heard Holland is definitely sticking with Quincey for the next few years. So it really just comes down to what Lidstrom does, and how much space we have. If Lidstrom does play for one more year (please hockey Gods let it happen), we still have a chance to sign Stuart, but we might not be able to overpay for him. If that happens let's just hope his desire to win more Stanley cups outweighs spending a few more months with his family for just a few more seasons.

I agree but If lIdstrom stays which he probably will because of the 2013 Winter classic Holland will most likely sign one and with all the stuff about Stuart and his Family he will most likely not sign and Quincey will sign. Holland may also trade his rights to a team in Cali.

If it was possible, the Wings would keep Stuart indefinitely. He's been a rock. If Stuart could get his family to migrate to Detroit, Stuart by all accounts would love to stay with this team and continue to enjoy high-level teammates and stability in a franchise second-to-none in how they treat their personnel. Unfortunately, it looks like the stars won't be aligning for the Wings and Stuart. It really is a shame. Completely understandable, but its gonna sting for both parties to end a great working relationship. I'd hate to be Stuart having regrets watching the Wings excel when he ends up in LA or San Jose.

the story behind Stuarts family is if his wife moves out of Cali. they lose custody of his step daughter to her ex.husband.

and that's not gonna happen.

he loves Detroit....but hates to miss his family and they are locked in for quite a few more years (she is still young)

sometimes your family comes first over personal career triumphs.

we have to respect that and move on.

just like lidas if he leaves....we will have to cope. his family will come first.

Stuart is gone. We can quit debating it. No chance he's back next year.

Suter and Weber aren't coming here and very one still debates that.

If Stuart will sign for 2-3 mil we should keep him. He wants to go back to Cali, but I don't see any team out there that will sign him to their top four.

I'll be surprised if Stuart returns.

Quincey, on the other hand -- that's sort of why he was brought back in, no? To soften the blow of the (seemingly inevitable) loss of Stuart?

Quincy will be qualified this summer- Holland said so the day he brought him back.

Stuart is as good as gone - money is not the issue.

$2-3M???? Stuart is worth more like $4-5M.

Anyway, he ain't coming back, thats why we got Quincey.

That's my take as well.

Seems as though most people are fully aware of his desire to play in California for the remainder of his career.

That said - Quincey can be a decent #4/#5 Dman on the Red Wings, and I'm guessing he'll sign a 3 to 5 year deal sometime this spring/summer.

I wish Stuart luck out West, but I feel for the guy, considering he was knocked around the league a lot the years prior to landing in Detroit and he seems to have found that ideal environment here. Really unfortunate that he'll have to give that up, most likely for good. Family first, great guy; hope he gets cheered at the Joe, even if he is wearing teal.

I think Holland should qualify an offer to Quincey around $3mil a year with a few years term. He has played decent, but I'm not completely sold yet. At that price he either signs and stays or possibly signs an offer sheet, in which case the Wings would be due compensation in the form of 1st and 3rd round picks if they let him walk (based on the price point). http://thehockeywriters.com/2011-12-nhl-rfa-compensation-rules/

It would be quite a deep but very congested lineup if Nick and Stewie come back.

Lidstrom-White

Kronwall-Stuart

Ericsson-Quincey

Kindl-Smith

Looks like a lineup for video games.

I wish we could keep Stuart he is nothing but a class act. I wish him all the best in the future, because I really don't see him coming back.

I'm gonna miss Stuart if he goes west. He has been really consistent since he came here in 2007-08, and he adds a nice amount of grit to the D. He's gonna get a nice payday out in California and he deserves it. Hopefully he signs with the Kings.
