Found February 25, 2012 on Kukla's Korner:
The Detroit Red Wings, now the Western Conference’s second-place team, hope to break a two-game losing streak (cue Chicago on Tuesday and Vancouver on Thursday) as the Wings take on the Colorado Avalanche tonight (7 PM EST, FSD/Altitude/97.1 FM) with the Wings concerned about far more important things than the now-probably-addressed squabble between Kyle Quincey and his former employer and/or its media corps. The Wings very simply need to, as they said on Friday, get back to the basics of playing winning hockey against an opponent which is making a desperate dash to become the Wings’ or Canucks’ first-round opponent. The Avalanche sit two points out of 8th place in the Western Conference because they’ve won three of their past four games and boast a 5-2-and-2 February record including their 5-0 thrashing of the Columbus Blue Jackets on Friday night.

Dater versus Quincey versus the Avs versus Quincey versus Dater

This just isn’t going to go away. As mentioned in the, “Mad Dash,” new Red Wings acquisition Kyle Quincey spoke to Yahoo Sports’ Nicholas J. Cotsonika about fact that Saturday night’s opponent, the Colorado Avalanche, has a bunch of unrestricted free agents-to-be, and that continued uncertainty as to the team’s direction has some of those unrestricted free agents-to-be...

Thoughts on Quincey & his comments

So there's been big drama in Avalanche land lately. First Kyle Quincey was traded to Tampa, where they turned him to Detroit, for a 1st round pick. So we'll start there. I don't really like this trade. Not that Downie won't help the Avs. I think he brings some of what the Avs need. Some, to borrow a hockey cliché, "sandpaper" to the lineup. But I feel like...

Dater: Quincey offers an apology for comments

Some scattered hockey thoughts for a Sunday, a day before the NHL trade deadline: • After getting to his new team in Detroit on Thursday, former Avalanche defenseman Kyle Quincey made some incendiary comments about the situation he left behind.

Come On Home, Son And Bring That Serial Killer With You

Tick Tock Kenny Holland has told us all he made a mistake when he waived Kyle Quincey.  Three years later, because it’s the Winged Way, he’s brought him back to Hockeytown.  That’s what Holland does, you know.  He lets them go with a promise that if they behave and improve and drop him a BFF text now and again? A spot will open up and it’s home again, home again. Quincey’s...

Kyle Quincey excited, nervous as Red Wings take on Canucks tonight

As much as Kyle Quincey feels surefooted and confident joining the Detroit Red Wings tonight when they host the Vancouver Canucks (7:30 p.m., FSD), he doesn't want to be the reason the Wings' 23-game home winning streak ends.

Red Wings overnight report: wanting to make a deal is one thing, and actually making one is another

As the Globe and Mail’s Eric Duhatschek suggests, the dearth of substantiated trade talk around this year’s trade deadline, which will hit at 3 PM EST today, may very well suggest that in this year of supercharged “parity” in the standings and uncertainty regarding the CBA to come, we’re more likely to actually witness 20-30 deals go down which could change the fortunes...

Red Wings Recap 2.23.2012

I'm bitter. Howard played great and line 1c was incredible, but all the talk will be about Vancouver snapping the streak. Whatever.Full recap after the jump: The icing call was terrible and it cost the Wings the game. Plain and simple. Still, if the whole team had played well, it wouldn't have mattered. Franzen seemed bored out there on the PP and the fact that he was...

Vancouver 4, Detroit Red Wings 3 (SO): Oh, shoot! Wings' home win streak ends at 23

Jimmy Howard protected the Red Wings through one subpar period, then another. Newcomer Kyle Quincey and the third line helped in the third. Ultimately, the Wings came up short, and their record-setting 23-game home winning streak ended.

Red Wings-Avalanche rivalry revival?

By MICHAEL J. DETROIT -- Gone are the goalie wars of the 1990s. Patrick Roy, Mike Vernon and Chris Osgood have all hung up their skates. Claude Lemieux and Darren McCarty are retired, too. They've even become buddies of sorts, teamed up for a series of public appearances last year to sign autographs and talk about their infamous fight of March 1997...
