Colorado trades D-Man Kyle Quincey to Tampa for Foward Steve Downie. Shocked to see Downie moved by Tampa. Then Tampa flips Quincey to Detroit for a 1st Round pick
Tampa also gets prospect Sebastien Piche with the 1st round pick.
Tampa now has 2 1st round picks & 3 2nd round picks in this year's draft
I liked Quincey when he was in Detroit a few years ago.
Giving up a first rounder for him, while tempered with the knowledge that it'll be pick 26-30 or so, still seems like an awful lot to give up for Quincey.
It's what Detroit always does. They draft so well in the later rounds it doesn't matter.
IIRC their last Stanley Cup team only had 1 guy drafted in the first three rounds and that was Danny Cleary, who wasn't even drafted by Detroit.
May I offer you some salt and vinegar chips?
