I called and canceled my half-season ticket plan yesterday over voice mail as well as gave my great displeasure, directly but professionally, over the mismanagement and lack of professionalism of this organization.
I actually received a follow up this morning from the head of ticket services telling me, "If you don't believe in the vision or management style of the best GM in sports, perhaps you might think about following another team".
Just throwing it out there, I find it pretty hilarious that we seem to be the only team where none of our free agents have generated even the slightest bit of interest from other teams. Shows how desirable our players are.
Not the subject of any buzz whatsoever, outside resigning in Detroit.
Pass on Green. He doesn't play D, he is injury prone, makes 6 mill per year. Right now we don't have the cap space to get him either. At 30 he isn't suddenly going to learn to play defense either. Yes he would help our PP and O when healthy. But we are already a team with injury issues for the past 3 seasons. We don't need to add another injury prone guy to the mix. Not to mention what it would cost to get him. Now if the Caps were willing to take Franzen and Kindl for Green, maybe I think about it. But I doubt they are that dumb.
He has one year remaining on his contract and we have 10 mil in cap space.
You think it's better to leave the cap space wasted instead of using on a guy who could drastically turn around our PP and blueline?
I hate Quincey more than anything
He's the easiest player for my buddies to chirp on the Wings next to the typical Cleary/Sammy/Bert
Remember when Ericsson was signed to that contract back in 2011? It was the same thing, we thought we'd let him walk, ends up getting a huge raise. There was a lot of backlash, the forum went nuts, but it ended up working out. Seems unlikely it'll be this way for Quincey but one can only hope...
Ericsson was 24 at the time I believe and hadn't peaked. There was still a lot of room for development and improvement.
Quincey is almost 29. What you see, is what you're gonna get until he starts winding down in his mid 30's.
What's even more scary is that he played as s***ty as he did in a CONTRACT YEAR.
