. You should be able to at least appreciate what the kids been able to do.
Quincey isn't getting "**** on" at all. We've all acknowledged that has been very good in his shutdown role, its the contract that makes him hard to appreciate.
I can appreciate him looking like a decent NHL dman and all but saying hes been the best lately is what I have an issue with. Hes been 7th in TOI on the year and even though he scored a goal last game he still had a few give aways and defensive gaffs where the wings got bottled up in their zone. As hard headed as Babcock can be, if a guy is playing like the teams best dman he would get the ice time.
A lot of you guys cant see past the fact that hes sheltered out there because he has too many turnovers to play big minutes against top line players. Not a big deal hes a late first and hes finally coming around but he hasnt been amazing out there and even though he has a lot of "hits" he doesnt seem to be punishing anyone at all out there given his frame. Hes still got a ways to go but hes at least looking like a legit NHLer now
