#2510318 Kyle Quincey Appreciation thread

Posted by dirtydangles on 17 April 2014 - 09:41 PM

I'd rather have Marchenko up next year and hold onto Kindl (who should be gone the following year). I'm hoping Quincey doesn't want to stay so Holland can't overpay him. 




#2509849 Gus & Tatar almost traded to Calgary per McKenzie

If this is true - which it may not be - it shows how little Ken Holland really knows/believes in his prospects. Jarnkrok is killing it over in NSH and these two are playing amazing in Detroit. You can't just go offering up young players as trade bait before you see what they can do in the NHL - its stupid. If Jarnkrok had put up 9 points in 12 games in Detroit prior to the trade his value would have been much higher and he would be valued similar to Sheahan currently. Bottom line - give prospects a legitimate NHL chance to solidify their value before you go and ship them off.

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

Controller short circuit as opposed to the Ovechkin controller disconnect?

Operator error

Quincey just wastes possession so much

Remember when Helm was being bashed around here about a month ago? Hahahaha LGW, my favorite site

Hindsight is 20/20. A player can have a rough patch where people are displeased and then redeem themselves later. I actually don't remember people hating on helm.




#2506817 A plea to Holland.

Posted by dirtydangles on 05 April 2014 - 11:05 PM

Kindl is a disaster. Lashoff doesn't make me hate him every game but he doesn't contribute much out there. I would rather replace Kindl at this point over Lashoff. At least Lashoff is pretty consistent every night. Kindl just has no clue. We are seeing Lashoff exposed more when he plays with Kindl. Ideally if Marchenko wasn't injured with could pair him with Lashoff for now and then when E gets back pair him with Quincey. 

 

Kronner - Smith

Dekeyser - Ericsson

Quincey - Marchenko

Lashoff

 

Next Season

 

Kronner - Smith

Dekeyser - Ericsson

Ouellet - Marchenko

Lashoff

 

If this season has shown us anything it is that the kids deserve a chance. I was complaining for years that our prospects don't become true assets until they play nhl games and prove they can produce. That is why people kept claiming we had no trade pieces (and now I wouldn't trade any of them). Holland should always keep a 12th forward/6th dman spot up for grabs between kids and let them compete for it (rather than inserting an aging vet). That is how you find your talent from within.




#2506426 4/5 GDT - Canadiens 5 vs Red Wings 3

Posted by dirtydangles on 05 April 2014 - 07:31 PM

I wish we were breaking in Marchenko rather than enduring Kindl. I'd rather have a kid making rookie mistakes than Kindl just making mistakes that he has made time and again.
