The Goods on Fantasy Hockey

Continuing with the special trade deadline coverage, the Pick Six features three players with present or past fantasy relevance that were traded this week. I have also squeezed in three players that could be recognizable on a Thursday that features nine games on the schedule, which includes a matchup of the top two teams in the Western Conference. Will the Wings’ home winning streak continue against a Canucks squad that is breathing down its neck for first overall in the NHL?
Kyle Quincey, D, DET – add
Could the Wings do to Quincey’s value what they did to Ian White’s? Quincey was in the middle of a slump with only three points in his last 19 games at the time of his trade back to Detroit, although he got off to a strong start and has demonstrated offensive prowess in the past. White already has Nicklas Lidstrom as his partner, which would explain his success this season. However, Quincey’s offensive upside and the fact that he now plays for a fantasy-friendly team could make him rosterable for the rest of the season.
