So...

Are we supposed to let Chris Ilitch know how upset we are about this?

At what point do we voice our displeasure? Our beloved Winged Wheel is being run into the ground by a buffoon.

THIS. The only way to make something happen is to let ownership know how displeased the fan-base is. Sometimes ownership doesn't understand that the manager is making poor moves.

I've been on the road most of the day and just got in to see what the Wings did today.

So uh, what? We bolster the defense by giving one of our problematic defenders a raise and bring in Porter?

I really don't even know what to say looking at what happened today.

We felt the price was right for Quincey after literally no one wanted to come here, and I have to say we feel like he's been a real good player for us and he is a big part of our team going forward.

Congrats Quincey on getting away with grand theft!!

Guys, it's only a 2 year deal. If we signed someone as a FA, we'd have to pay more and for a longer term. For a defenceman who plays 20 minutes a night, it's a good contract. Quincey would have got more if he hit the open market.

Oh no, pay ehrhoff the same or niskanen 1.5 more lol..... There is no way any one can defend holland on this, and say it was the best move for this team and organization.

Quincey did hit the open market and no other team appeared to have interest since free agency kicked off earlier. Quincey playing 20 minutes per game is exactly the Wings problem defensively. They just made their issue a solution.

I'm just at a loss of words... Officially am done defending holland... He has slowly done absolutely 0 to recover from the loss of lidstrom and rafalski

How does he replace Lidstrom and Rafalski? Those guys can't be replaced.

It's irrelevant how much he'd get on the open market. He is terrible, we'd be better off with Sproul or Ouellet.

Quincey played more minutes in LA and Colorado

Rafalski is replaceable. Lidstrom, not so much.

Which is why you don't try and replace Lidstrom with one guy. You have to re-evaluate how the whole team is built, because Lids was the keystone of it. Then you make adjustments and give the team a new identity.

Since Lidstrom retired, the Wings are basically the same kind of team only with a massive hole in the blueline and with Dats, Z, and Franzen no longer in their prime.

you can't replace them, but you do a lot better job then Quincey, losing Stuart, signing a FA that wanted to go no where else in dekeyser.

Chicago has no cap room, but adds brad Richards, we have 12/14 million we give Quincey a raise... There is no way to defend that, sorry

I have been telling you guys for a long time that Holland sucks...he only drafts well because he listens to his scouts...he is the worst at trades and embarrases himself when it comes to UFA's... He singled handedly destroyed Detroit's stellar reputation...Kenny, the streak means nothing to UFA's out there...nothing. When you sign junk like Q and Monster and chose an inferior player over a top 10 NHL talent, it shows other players that you have no interest in winning a Cup...
