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
Eh, Q is playing Holland like a violin. The playbook: play hardball and tell KH you only want a one year deal since he is not offering you your full value as a top 4 d-man who plays on the PP and PK. No doubt Holland will eventually cave and give Quincey whatever he wants. Say 5 years at $4.5 million? Q just needs to hold tight and Holland will cave. It sucks, really.
