I've shown the stats that point out how weak Quincey's offense is.

I'm not talking about one season with Hannan. I'm talking about a guy who only once in the last 10 years has played less than 20 minutes (19:47 in 11).

Ericsson's best is 18:50.

Let's stop acting like Ericsson is some 24 year old. He's 28. His career high in points doesn't indicate he's a "top 4" defenseman. His icetime doesn't indicate he's a top 4 defenseman. He doesn't have a track record to indicate he's a top 4 defenseman.

He's got a good chance to get lots of minutes on a Red Wings defense that will make last year's Flames defense look like the 77 Habs.
