Well then something needs to happen. Picking up Quincey would be easier than recalling someone from Manchester right now.

I hope they picked him up. When Johnson comes back, send Gauthier down.

Like I stated in the main board thread....Quincey strikes me as a Lombardi type player. If he comes to the Kings he will have a chance to earn a spot before Johnson returns.

Excellent play by Lombardi. For as much as I've killed him over the last 18 months (after being with him the first 18), the past week has been very very good organizationally.

This is a fine pickup. He can play, plus he's pretty damn tough.

Fact of the day...he played two years with O'Sullivan in Mississagua.

I'm guessing this means Johnson will be out for awhile.

Not necessarily....if Johnson recovers quickly Dean has other options to keep Quincy on the roster.

The best defenseman on the ice? Uh, no. He just didn't make any mistakes -- which was impressive.

He was awful in the pre-season this year but he's a solid player. Nice move by the Kings.

To add to that, Babcock picked his spots are delicately as you could considering the circumstances. He played 10 mins initially because Babcock could count on his adrenaline but as soon as Quincey realized where he was Babcock reduced and reduced and basically told him to clear the puck and get off the ice. He'll be serviceable for you guys but don't expect too much.

Damn, wish he couldve dropped to the Devils, but he is a good defenseman. Nice pickup.

Fact # 2, other than Sean O'Donnell, Kyle Quincey is the only other King on the roster that has won the Stanley Cup.

nobody will be expecting too much... he's a strong, bottom pairing defenseman.

We'll take him. If he does nothing more than chew up 12-15 minutes a game and is solid then we have gotten ourselves a deal.

If he can do those two things he'll be better than Gauthier.

Wow this is good. I am starting to experience some deja vu with the former ice dogs in the Pacific Division. I think the nice thing is Kyle had the benefit from learning from established vets in the Detroit system.

We might be rollling 7 defensemen until JJ returns.

Nice pick up. Hopefully he'll stick around longer than our last waiver pick up from Detroit, Ellis.
