Despite what George might write about me, I don’t blast away to intentionally rile the unwashed. If a little angst on their part is a byproduct? I have no problem with that. The whole idea behind A2Y has always been to write like we talk and speak what we think. Because it’s fun.
So, because we do this for fun, I’ll tell you that if you click the “continue reading” thing, I’m going to rip Adrian Dater, the city of Denver, the franchise that was stolen from Quebec and probably make a few claims about how bringing Kyle Quincey back to the land of honey and Cups shouldn’t surprise anyone because the Wings do business like that. Whereas the Dive? Not so much.

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.

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.
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.
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...
Kyle Quincey was happy when the Red Wings waived him three-plus years ago and happier now that they've extended their arms in welcome. He scored as he made his second debut with them Thursday, helping them to squeeze one point out of a 4-3 shoot-out loss to Vancouver at Joe Louis Arena. "I'm just so excited to help the team," Quincey said.
I think the Avalanche did.
In case you missed the news – and I did at first because, well it was a day off and I was actually taking a nap when it happened (hey, I need a little sleep now and then, get off my @!#) – the Avs dealt Kyle Quincey to Tampa Bay today for forward Steve Downie. TB then flipped Quincey to Detroit for a first-round pick.
First off, why I think...
The Tampa Bay Lightning have traded right wing Steve Downie to the Colorado Avalanche for defenseman Kyle Quincey, a source confirmed to ESPN.com's Pierre LeBrun.
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...
