It's official... Quincey and Richards will not return


Detroit Red Wings to part ways with Kyle Quincey, Brad Richards http://on.freep.com/27DL6Ch  via @freep


I mean, call me a pessimist, but I'm not sure it's "official" just yet. I definitely think Richards is gone, but...

General manager Ken Holland told the Free Press today that he told "Brad Richards and Kyle Quincey that I definitely won't sign them before July 1, if at all."

I'm having flashbacks of July 2014, where Holland struck out on Stralman, Niskanen and Boyle, then decided to lock-up KFQ on July 2nd. If Holland's targeting guys like Yandle, Goligoski or Campbell and strikes out, I hope he just allows Ouellet/Sproul to join the roster.

In fact, I'd rather Ken not sign any of those guys, considering we've already got 15M tied up in Green, Kronwall and Ericsson as it is...

IIRC, the time pro will be counted as completed seasons, meaning next summer Russo would be eligible to be taken.
Every team will be looking to do that.

From what I've gathered from various sources, a lot of players who would be completing their 2nd pro season next year have been labeled as exempt from the draft - ie: Larkin, McDavid, Ehlers, etc. I think it's a case of playing 2 full seasons or fewer and not needing protection. I'm not sure there's any concrete information on whether it's "you've played two full seasons, so now you're eligible" or "you've only played two full seasons, you're exempt".

If this is correct, I'm wondering how that applies to players who may have played a some pro games at the end of the 2014-15 season. Teams like to bring their junior players up to their AHL teams on tryout contracts once their respective junior teams are eliminated. It doesn't impact their "rookie" status, but I'm curious how it might be applied here.

Once the season was finished, I immediately thought of Oates as an option for an assistant coach and found this piece on what he's doing these days - http://www.sportsnet...sponds-critics/


He seems pretty content in putting his role as a coach behind him, but I suppose anything could happen. I recalled him visiting Detroit during this season, but it just appears part of something he was willing to do as a consultant.

One possible candidate to replace him Jeff Salajko, the goaltending development coach for the Grand Rapids Griffins the past three seasons. He has worked closely with Petr Mrazek and even joined the Red Wings on the ice for practices in Columbus this past season.

Here's an up-to-date version of that Waiver Schedule. Just scroll to the far right to see it, along with the current contracts.
