Found July 17, 2012 on Kukla's Korner:
Excellent news from the Macomb Daily’s Chuck Pleiness this evening: the Wings will avoid a nasty arbitration hearing with restricted free agent Kyle Quincey, and are likely to ink him to a contract extension soon: “I know we’re close,” said Wings general manager Ken Holland, of the on-going negotiations with Kyle Quincey in a phone interview Tuesday. “We’re hoping to avoid the arbitration process.” Quincey’s arbitration hearing is scheduled for July 25. Both sides need to have their briefs for the hearing by 9 a.m. Monday. “It’s good motivation for us to work on this thing, but I’m optimistic we’ll find a solution prior to going to the hearing on Wednesday,” Holland said. Pleiness suggests that the Wings will ink Quincey to a 1-2 deal at a Jonathan Ericsson-like $3.25-or-so million per season, essentially making him a “try-out” as much as a reclamation project going forward… Continue reading "Red Wings evening news: Quincey deal ‘close’ per Pleiness and Khan; still

Red Wings, Quincey agree to $7.55M, 2-year deal

The Detroit Red Wings have agreed to a $7.55 million, two-year contract with defenseman Kyle Quincey. The team announced the agreement Wednesday that avoided arbitration. Detroit drafted Quincey 132nd overall in 2003 and the Red Wings got him back from Colorado last season for a first-round pick in a three-team trade.

Red Wings overnight report: on Tootoo, Quincey, Lashoff, free agents and CBA talk

Well, aside from finding out in the middle of the night that the Red Wings may have been in the pre-nuclear trade discussions for one Shea Weber (a day after we found out that the Wings did their best to bid for Rick Nash—hey, Holland, Nill, Martin and Babcock weren’t working their phones half the time at last week’s developmental camp to check their tee times), Wednesday was...

Red Wings overnight report: more on the Wings’ RFA’s, Doan and the waiting game

Earlier on Monday evening, MLive’s Ansar Khan reported that Red Wings GM Ken Holland is attempting to ink the Wings’ restricted free agents, Kyle Quincey and Justin Abdelkader, to new contracts. This morning, the Free Press’s Helene St. James reports that the Wings are actually a little further along in the negotiating process with both players than Khan reported… The Wings...

He’s ‘our’ Jordin Tootoo now: #22 visits Detroit, dons a Red Wings jersey

If you’d told me a month ago that on July 18th, I would have spoken to Mike Babcock for ten minutes during the Wings’ summer development camp, and that Jordin Tootoo would have Tweeted the following, I would have laughed at you: Off to Detroit in the morning ! Looking forward to finding myself a new home.— Jordin Tootoo (@Jtootoo22) July 17, 2012 Jordin Tootoo is indeed...

Red Wings morning report: more about Quincey, Nash, Doan and CBA stuff

With MLive’s Ansar Khan’s Rick Nash bombshell dropped before someone’s internet service went out last night, we’re shifting back to more pedestrian Red Wings news this morning with more discussion about Kyle Quincey and Justin Abdelkader’s contracts. The Free Press’s Helene St. James reports that the Wings will have to submit legal briefs of their stance against Quincey...

Red Wings mid-day news: on Tootoo, free agents, Callahan and Winter Classic ticket stupidity

It’s dangerous to call any news day a “slow” one, but thus far, today’s Red Wings news is…sparse. We’ll start this roundup Tomorrow, we’ll sit down with Red Wings forward @Jtootoo22. To ask Jordin a question, tweet #AskTootoo and some of you will be answered!— Detroit Red Wings (@DetroitRedWings) July 17, 2012  Continue reading "Red Wings mid-day news: on...

Red Wings evening ramble: on roster moves to come, Brian Lashoff and inevitable Bertuzzi banter

My theory about the Red Wings’ roster machinations to come is a simple one: given that the Wings have re-signed Kyle Quincey to a 2-year deal which will probably look downright reasonable a year from now, and that the team’s going to re-sign Justin Abdelkader shortly and then more or less wait for Shane Doan to make up his mind while Ken Holland comes back to Detroit to have...

Will Dominik Hasek excel if he returns to the NHL?

Reports are indicating that Dominik Hasek is contemplating a return to the NHL. Hasek, 47, hasn't appeared in the NHL since he called it quits following the 2007-08 season where he minded the net for the Detroit Red Wings. We aren't pulling your leg. Even at the ripe age of 47, Hasek is apparently extremely motivated to play again in the NHL. Hasek admits that he isn'...

Quincey Signed

Well, boys and girls, the Quincey wait is over, he's a Red Wing for at least two more years.   It's roughly what I thought he'd get, maybe a little higher.  @HeleneStJames:  Red Wings settle with RFA D Kyle Quincey for two years, $7.55 million. Now we just wait on Abdelkader.   Any guesses what he'll receive? 

Reports: Detroit Red Wings Made ‘Hell of an Offer’ for Rick Nash

The Wings apparently are on Nash's approved list of teams that he'd accept a trade to, but the Blue Jackets have been asking for the moon thus far Continue reading →

Detroit Has The Best Team Corsi

A couple days ago I posted the team Corsi ratings for 2011/12.  This is the difference in shots attempted (shots on goal, missed shots and blocked shots) taken by a team minus those taken against a team in five on five situations.  It is a strong indicator of a team’s puck possession ability.  This is an important repeatable part of a team’s success or failure.  It clearly...

Minnesota Not Wild About Mike Modano Comeback?

Mike Modano seemed through with hockey after sitting out all of last season, but the 42-year-old saw a couple of fellow 40+ stars rekindle some old magic, while one franchise broke the bank in the city where Modano once called home, intriguing one of the best ever American born players to consider a comeback. Modano has said he started working out again, but not necessarily...
