From Khan, on Quincey:

Quote:
They have been discussing one- and two-year deals. A one-year contract would enable Quincey, 26, to become an unrestricted free agent next summer.

My interpretation of this is that Quincey wants a one-year deal so that he can sooner reap the rewards of free agency. The Wings want the two-year deal (and probably even longer, but I'm guessing Quincey ruled out anything beyond 2 years) because he will obviously be cheaper that way, and they want him under control for as long as possible. But it seems clear Quincey has his eyes set on free agency, which leads me to believe that he's less likely to be a Wings long-term. Which makes the trade for him look even worse
