Not really. Especially since I'm not defending it as a good trade - but the idea behind the trade made sense. The Wings DID need to bolster the defense going into the playoffs. Smith, Kindl, Janik and Commodore are not top 4 guys (or weren't at the time), which is what Holland was trying to replace - obviously it didn't work out.

As for the guys in free agency - the top 2 guys were Suter and Carle - Holland obviously missed on both, which was a major mistake.

It didn't work out and looked dumb since we waived Quincey in the first place, but it really only looked as bad as it did because we waived him. That's undeniable. On that note, I'm with anyone who wants to get rid of him as quickly as possible.
