I don't think Kindl outplayed Ericsson, but that aside I wouldn't be opposed to a Quincey vs Kindl competition. Might make them both better. But alas, I think the organization holds Quincey in too high of esteem to put him in that situation. He's about to re-sign for more than I'd like, and then be given a guaranteed spot in the top-6.
