from Ansar Khan of Mlive, By filing for salary arbitration on Thursday, defenseman Kyle Quincey expedited the process toward getting a new contract with the Detroit Red Wings.
The sides haven’t had much time to talk, with so much else going on for the club. But, now they will.
“Today was something that needed to happen to put pressure on both of us to negotiate a deal in a timely fashion,’’ Red Wings general manager Ken Holland said. “It’s just part of the process.
“I made an offer. They never really gave me a (counter) offer. We had one sit down meeting before the draft. It puts a deadline on both sides.’‘
If the sides can’t agree on a deal, an arbiter will decide what Quincey will earn. He made $3.125 million this past season.
