They are 11th in the West with the 19th ranked GA/G in the NHL and have given up the 3rd most GA in the west.

I'm not sure they have an internal replacement who can come in and play those minutes Quincey did. They got value for him, for sure, Downie will be a tremendous player moving forward, but if this is all they do, then there is a chance they sink towards the bottom for the west and give the caps a top-10 pick in the draft.
So maybe like my Downie comment COL knows that Quincey is asking too much?
