Ex-King (Ex-Wing) Kyle Quincey back in Detroit

New, comments

Yzerman trades for Kyle Quincey then flips him to Detroit. Tampa gets an extra first round pick in 2012. Detroit gets a great defenseman I wish the Kings still had. That pick is a lot to give up for a rental, since Quincey is a pending UFA; but of course, Quincey will re-sign in Detroit. Who wouldn't?

Source -- Detroit Red Wings land Kyle Quincey in three-team trade - ESPN
The Detroit Red Wings have landed Colorado Avalanche defenseman Kyle Quincey in a three-team deal with the Tampa Bay Lightning, a source confirmed to ESPN.com's Pierre LeBrun. In exchange for Quincey, the Avs received Lightning right wing Steve Downie and Detroit sent minor-leaguer Sebastien Piche and its first-round pick in 2012 to Tampa Bay, the source said. Quincey, who has 18 assists and 23 points through 52 games this year, is on pace for his second-best season since entering the NHL on a full-time basis in 2008 with Los Angeles. Detroit originally drafted Quincey 132nd overall in 2003.
