What exactly, I'm not sure but he's capable of top four play on at least half of all NHL teams. That our fans don't like him is beside the point. They're welcome to find a list of top four defensemen who will sign here for less than that.

Oh wait. Holland can't seem to find anyone in that scrap heap, can he?
I bagged on Quincey for years and I still believe in what I said, but he's still 26 years old and can help this team (hopefully in a lesser role when players like Smith develop and we get a real #1/#2 defensemen). But if Q's demands are too high it won't be hard to replace him on a 1 year basis. But Holland will sign him for whatever the decision is, he has 17m in cap space.
