Quick Quincey Question?


Why does everyone hate Kyle Quincey so much? Yeah, I get we overpaid for him and he made a lot of mistakes last season. But I also recall being ridiculously upset when we got rid of him in the first place because he showed a bunch of potential. So really, I'm more mad at Ken Holland for getting rid of draft picks for a goddamn mulligan he never should have needed.

Points wise, both he and Ian White have underperformed compared to their career averages, but I have to imagine that will regress to the norm. Lets not forget that in the two seasons Quincey actually got a whole seasons worth of games in he's about a 30 point player, I doubt that's changed with more experience and talent around him. He was on pace for that when we traded for him, and I can understand how a change of playing philosophy would interrupt your vibe.

Lastly... the dude leads us in +/-. By, like, A LOT.

So why the hate? It seems to be lessening lately, but I still see a lot of people bitching about him, both here and in person. I don't get to watch too many games due to other commitments, but when I do I rarely have much to complain about aside from the odd huge mistake, which many players on this team are prone to make. I dunno, I just get more frustrated with Franzen, Bertuzzi, Cleary, Filppula, and Abdelkader than I EVER do with Quincey.
