Thank you for being an uninjurable iron horse this year. You are one of only two Red Wings to play in all 82 games.

 

Despite all that ice time you still managed to come up only 5th in defensive scoring and 18th in overall team scoring. 

 

You averaged slightly more than 1 boneheaded penalty minute per game (88 minutes in 82 games) - which, coincidentally, is the team high for penalty minutes this year. 

 

Your four goals speak volumes about your inability to find the twine and yet - you never stop trying. Little the Little Kyle That Could - you rank 10th on the team in shots with 106. Your 3.8% shooting percentage actually makes us miss Dan Cleary's 6.3%. Your single GWG must have stirred something down deep that encouraged you like little angel on your shoulder. Every time you touched the puck that little guy could be heard shouting, "SHOOT KYLE, SHOOT! You're good enough, you're smart enough and doggone it, people like you (more than MIKAEL SAMUELSSON)!"

 

You points production was damn near equal home and away - 6 home and 7 away, but your +/- shows that you really get nervous at the Joe - +6 on the road and -11 at home. You did this all while saying, "Damn the critics! My -5 is a meaningless stat anyway!"

 

Having said all that, you did spend an average of 30 more seconds on ice in all of the winning games than the losing games - 21:02 vs. 20:35 - so that makes it clear - MOAR QUINCEY = MOAR WINS!

I appreciate the improvement that Q made over this last stretch. He didn't suck as much, and I found myself saying GODDAMMIT QUINCEY much less.

And good luck on his journey to another team next season. Wish you all the best Q! Sayonara!

Yea Q really improved his play the second half, I had no complaints with him. So kudos for that. First half, different story.

Honestly, in the last stretch Quincey has been great. Nothing really offensively, but his bonehead factor has gone down quite a bit

 

This is unfortunate because it will probably entice our legendary GM to lock him up for another 6 seasons with a NTC.

Pavel datsyuk is the best player in the world because he snatches the puck from unsuspecting players and  follows it up by the simultaneous undressing of the defence pairing. The goalie then gives up, and flops like a fish. The end result is a calm skate back to his bench  where he can bask in the praise of his multiple girlfriends from the motherland.

Iam with you and thousands of other fans on that one. Somehow I feel Kenny is going to resign him.

While he did improve near the end - Quincey should not be here next year. Not really tolerable long term. 


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

It depends on what else they do.  I'd like to see Marchenko on the 3rd pair, but the free agent market is going to be paper thin, with  a few decent players and a bunch of guys who are old, injury prone, or just plain bad, if not a combination of them.  The odds are anyone they'd sign won't be much of an upgrade, if at all, just have different issues.  Ideally they can trade Kindl and a prospect or two and get a top 4 quality defender and use Smith and Marchnko as the 3rd pair with Lashoff as the #7.  If not, trading Kindl for a pick and re-signing Quincey to a pay cut to play on the 3rd pair won't be the end of the world.


Oh this young man has had a very trying rookie season, with the litigation, the notoriety, his subsequent deportation to Canada and that country's refusal to accept him, well, I guess that's more than most 21-year-olds can handle... Ogie Ogilthorpe!

Truthfully we don't know what KH and the brain trust are thinking in terms of the bottom half of our D. Who knows, maybe the strong showing from our kids might persuade KH to give them a chance and not sign anyone. A lot will depend on the next 8 weeks me thinks.

Q will work his ass off in playoffs just to earn a new contract. Wait and you will see. I hope to be wrong. However we will probably see him in Wings uniform for few more years.

Exactly this. So at this point I'm neither here nor there about whether he resigns or not. I wouldn't mind seeing one of the kids brought up though.

Some statistics involving Q:

 

In 149 career regular season games for the Red Wings: 8 goals, 12 assists, 20 points and the Wings won just 66 of those 149 games.

 

In 32 career playoff games for the Red Wings: 0 goals, 4 assists, 4 points, 15 wins.

 

That's 8 goals and 16 assists in 181 regular season and playoff games, with the Wings winning just 81 of those games.

 

Contrast that with 91 points in 232 regular season and playoff games with COL/LAK.

If he can manage to be "invisibly" effective then that is ok in my book!

I have to agree with the majority here in that Q's second half has been pretty solid. Last season and th efirst half this year I was hoping he'd be run out of town but he's settled in finally and isn't seen much most games, which is pretty good to me because it means he's not sticking out for making retarded plays!

 

If he stayed at a lower cost I'd be fine with it if he keeps playing this way and maybe even continue improving.

Honestly.
If it wasn't for his cap hit, id have zero problems with him.
Hes made some bad plays, sure.
But he made alot of pretty good plays, in hard minutes, with fluctuating partners in a system that doesnt suit him.
If we can resign him cheaper, id be fine with him being here.

I think this was the theme last year as well. I still remember his first game in 2012-2013 season against St Louis. Tarasenko blew by him 2 times and scored. It wasn't until halfway through that season he played decent as well. Not particularly a guy we need.
