from Adrian Dater of the Denver Post,
Kyle Quincey is one of only two ex-Detroit Red Wings to play for the Avalanche. While Todd Gill was the other, he essentially quit the team midway through his one season in Denver, 2001-02.
The Avs have plans to keep Quincey in a burgundy and blue uniform a lot longer than one year, and they certainly won’t mind if Quincey lays a bunch of big hits on the Red Wings like the kind he did in his preseason Avs debut Sunday night….
Quincey posted 38 points for the Kings last season, an excellent offensive number for any defenseman. He showed some reasons why Sunday, moving the puck quickly. He also has a big slap shot, although only four of his 38 points with the Kings came on goals.
“He’s got a lot of poise with the puck,” Avs coach Joe Sacco said. “When he’s in situations where he thinks he’s in trouble, he seems to get himself out of trouble. We’re looking for him to have a positive impact on our club.”
