Agreed. I would have been much more confident that Holland was going to do something smart by doing nothing after not being able to land Ehrhoff, Boyle, Stralman, or Niskanen.
Was it really necessary to sign Q on July 1? He wouldn't be there July 15th? Aug 15th?
We weren't worried about getting signed Alfie yesterday? Q is that important.
No. Pure Panic Move.
Yeah Holland signed Quincey just to say he did something. Nobody is snatching him up and if they do, so what? I'm quite certain you can get someone else to do just as good (or bad). Alfredsson should have been more of a priority than resigning Quincey. These types of signings hurt the teams image. "We didn't get the type of player we wanted, so we re-signed the garbage we were going to let go." Yeah, watch the UFAs just come sprinting to us now.
