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.


This. Kenny Holland knows what he's doing & has 4 SC rings to prove it. The Wings ALWAYS find gems in later rounds, thats why IMO, hes the best GM in the league.
