23 Red Wings, Kyle Quincey still talking as arbitration nears



By Helene St. James

Detroit Free Press Sports Writer

The Red Wings are readying briefs to submit Monday in case they're needed, but remain hopeful a deal can be worked out with restricted free-agent defenseman Kyle Quincey.

Quincey filed for arbitration July 5, and the sides have a hearing one week from today, though written arguments are due two days in advance. In the meantime, negotiations continue.

"We've talked a couple of times, and we'll talk some more," general manager Ken Holland said Tuesday. "We continue to talk about one year, but we've also had conversations about maybe beyond a year. It'll have to play itself out before next Wednesday."

It's not uncommon to settle at the 11th hour.

Quincey's age, 26, restricts an arbitrator to awarding a one-year deal, which would make Quincey eligible for unrestricted free agency next summer. He is coming off a two-year, $6.25-million deal, with an actual salary of $3.25 million last season. In arbitration, he isn't going to get less -- but the Wings can make an argument he shouldn't get much more. For both, a one-year deal might make sense, as Quincey would have the chance for a bounce-back season and increase his value, and the Wings could gauge whether he's worth a longer investment.

Solid defensemen are precious in the NHL, and the Wings are confident Quincey can est@blish himself as such.

The Wings acquired him a week before the Feb. 28 trade deadline from Colorado via Tampa Bay. In 54 games with the Avalanche, Quincey had five goals among 23 points; he had three points, two of them goals, in 18 games with Detroit.

The Wings had drafted him in the fourth round in 2003 and lost him on waivers in October 2008. Quincey spent a season with the Kings before being traded to the Avalanche.

His transition back to Detroit was rough, but he arrived in a "perfect storm" scenario, joining a lineup struggling in the absence of its two best players, Nicklas Lidstrom and Pavel Datsyuk.

"When Kyle joined us, our team was playing the worst hockey of the year. We had lots of injuries. As a player, you need the whole group to be playing well," Holland said. "And he was probably a little surprised he got traded. I thought he was better later in the year. We scouted him, we know him, we know that he's a good, solid NHL defenseman. I think the opportunity for him to start right from training camp and get a comfort level will help this year."
