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?
For the record I do want us to keep Quincey for a season even if the contract is $4M. It doesn't look like we'll be close to the cap, so you suck it up and at least improve your team a little bit. But I don't think he's worth it. However Quincey can't use that leverage of cap space and team need etc. in arbitration so I'm still hoping his award will be closer to $3M.
