Quincey was acquired to replace Stuart. Blatantly obvious, yet people continue to ignore it.



Ahh, my bad. That's his problem then.
Why would either of those players need to be paid more just to get above the cap floor? Detroit currently sits around 60 million. If the players tooks 1 million less and looked to be playing where you are expecting them to play at, Detroit would still be easily over the floor. Detroit expects these players to have specific roles with the team. Whether they are able to meet those expectations is another thing. As for the two current NHL superstars toiling in GR, let's give them some time at the NHL level before we start proclaiming them to be something bigger than they are projected to be.
