Hey guess who's back? Kyle Quince is back. At least we think so. The Wings apparently maybe need to move a few more dollars around to make the cap space. They needed an injury or something to make it all work... and bam! Drew Miller apparently got hurt at the perfect time last night!

So if all goes... well? Miller's MRI shows he's got a boo boo and he goes to LTIR. Abracadabra! Quincey comes back! As far as the defensive pairs go, who the hell knows. Sadly, I would guess Brendan Smith sits. I personally think that's a dumb idea, but there is no way in hell the team would healthy scratch Jonathan Ericsson. We'll definitely know more after the Red Wings actual morning skate (if they have one) and/or Jeff Blashill chats with the media.
