Kyle Quincey, Defenseman for the Colorado Avalanche, is a little bothered that the Detroit Red Wings voted and said he wouldn't get his name on the '08 Stanley Cup. Red Wings fans are annoyed that Quincey is bothered. Quincey is now a member of the Colorado Avalanche. Perfect.
Wings fans are saying it's a joke that Quincey is making an issue of this and that he's nothing but a baby. Talk about a fan base just aching to have somebody to deride. The Wings do good? Poke fun at other teams and players. The Wings do bad? Poke fun at other teams and players. Talk about a joke.
"It bothers me a little that I didn't get a ring. That's kind of a gray area, and they decided not to give us one. That's their decision," Quincey said. "It just drives me more and more to have an opportunity to get one with this team."
Even though Kyle Quincey only played 6 games with the Detroit Red Wings in 2007, he should receive a championship ring and his name on the Stanley Cup, the biggest honor in all of hockey. Many teams provide these honors to players even if they play a handful of games, as there are many circumstances that can affect a player’s status such as injury or being traded. The issue seems to be that Kyle Quincey now plays for the Colorado Avalanche, one of the Detroit Red Wings biggest rivals. This is very petty and a huge disappointment from an organization that was once the most classy team in hockey.
