Holland erases error by getting Quincey

Detroit Red Wings general manager Ken Holland likes to describe his job as winning today with an eye always on tomorrow. Its a simple philosophy to manage by, and nobody does it better than Holland -- even if he makes a mistake or two along the way. With the reacquisition of defenseman Kyle Quincey from Tampa Bay on Tuesday, Holland corrected one of his few miscalculations. He...

A dissenting opinion on the Quincey deal

What The Chief does is harder than one might think. That whole combination of earnest snark and a willingness to play the Don Cherry of Red Wings blogdom boor for the sake of baiting those who dislike and sometimes detest the Winged Wheel by issuing the verbal equivalent of bloody fish guts and 8-day-old octopus…I can’t pull off that s*** for the life of me. I do the earnest...

Red Wings Trade for Defenseman/Cereal Eater Kyle Quincey

Wow, I missed this one. Earlier today, the Red Wings traded prospect Sebastien Piche and a first round pick to the Tampa Bay Lightning, who had just traded for Quincey 30 minutes before that. Giving up a first round pick is a steep price to pay, but Quincey is a solid defenseman in the prime of his career who adds some much-needed depth to the Red Wings' blue line. D4L friend4lyfe...

Detroit Red Wings acquire Kyle Quincey

Earlier today former Wings defenseman Kyle Quincey was traded from Colorado to Tampa Bay for Steve Downie.  Minutes later it was reported and confirmed by TSN’s Bob McKenzie that he had been traded to Detroit for a 1st round pick and Sebastien Piche.  This is a great trade  for the Wings, Quincey is a physical defenseman who can still contribute in the offensive zone.  Think...

Kyle Quincey traded to Detroit

According to @TSNBob McKenzie, defensemen Kyle Quincey was traded from the Avalanche to the Lighting for Steve Downie and then flipped to Detroit for a 1st round pick and minor leaguer Sebastien Piche. Not that we have a crystal ball, but this is the third player we covered in the scouting the deadline series to be traded recently. I know, shameless plug. The others were Pavel Kubina...

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.

Quincey's Impact on the NHL Trade Market

The Tampa Bay Lightning stayed busy on Tuesday with their third move in the span of a week. Lightning GM Steve Yzerman dealt Dominic Moore to the San Jose Sharks last Thursday, moved Pavel Kubina to the Philadelphia Flyers the next day, and then yesterday picked up Kyle Quincey from Colorado in exchange for Steve Downie, before dealing Quincey to Detroit for a first round pick...

Lightning Trade Steve Downie to Avalanche for Kyle Quincey, Flip Defenseman to Red Wings for First-Round Pick

Teams are becoming increasingly active with the NHL trade deadline less than a week away. It was the Lightning, Red Wings and Avalanche that made a splash on Tuesday. The Lightning traded winger Steve Downie to the Avalanche in exchange for defenseman Kyle Quincey. Tampa Bay then shipped Quincey to the Detroit Red Wings for their first-round pick and defenseman Sebastien Piche. The...

Quincey returns for 1st-round pick

The Red Wings got help from one former player to acquire another as they take aim at the Stanley Cup. The Wings added toughness to their blue line Tuesday by acquiring defenseman Kyle Quincey from Tampa Bay for Detroit's first-round pick in the June draft.

Let’s hear it for small-market hockey

The Avalanche jettisoning of defenseman Kyle Quincey and adding of winger Steve Downie in the three-team trade Tuesday can be justified in the competitive sense. I get that. Colorado had a numbers issue on defense and needed more grit, or at least grit with some talent accompanying it, at forward. But two additional things jumped out at me, and I couldn’t resist saying them from...

Avs trade Kyle Quincey for Tampa's Steve Downie in three-team deal with Detroit

The Avalanche bolstered its forward corps and decreased the log jam on defense today by acquiring forward Steve Downie from the Tampa Bay Lightning for defenseman Kyle Quincey.
