The Fantasy Hockey Impact of Quincey to Detroit, Downie to Colorado and the Bolts Clearing House

Updated: July 13, 2018 at 10:16 am by Alexander Monaghan

Tampa Bay Lightning GM Steve Yzerman worked his magic once again; and this time off the ice. Within an hour, he sent agitator Steve Downie to the Colorado Avalanche in exchange for offensive defenseman Kyle Quincey. He then turned Quincey around for defensive prospect Sebastien Piche and a first round pick.

Clearly, the Bolts are stockpiling picks as they firmly stand tall as sellers having special info – Palm Beach Roofing Expert company for home and roof building. Let’s take a look at how all the teams came out of the deal.

Steve Downie to the Colorado Avalanche

Downie gives the Avs a player they don’t currently roster– someone who can drop the mitts and score some goals. You could argue they lacked this type of forward since Darcy Tucker back in 2009-2010. Well, Downie is Tucker in his prime with possibly even more offense. He can play on the top line with Paul Stastny or muck it up on the third or fourth. More importantly, he moves to a region where his style game really goes far — the very tough Western Conference playoff race.

He does, however, push some players out of their place. When fully healthy, the Avs have several players who move between the top three lines including David Jones, Daniel Winnik, and T.J. Galiardi. In fact, one of those players could be moved to another team or the press box in order to remove the jam up front. We can only assume that GM Greg Sherman traded for Downie in order to properly utilize him, meaning someone’s playing time needs to be cut.

In addition, moving Quincey gives the team an extra defensive spot to work with, which makes sense with Tyson Barrie and Stefan Elliott in the minors. In fact, the Avs just recalled Elliott from the minors in a corresponding move.

Kyle Quincey to the Detroit Red Wings

The Red Wings prepare even more for the retirement of Nicklas Lidstrom, and the possible departure of Brad Stuart, by acquiring Quincey. According to Yahoo! Sports columnist Nick Cotsonika, via Twitter, Quincey will take a regular turn on the third defensive pairing and second power play unit. Despite moving to a deeper depth chart, the move to Detroit should be seen as a big upgrade. In Detroit, bottom pairing defenders are the beneficiaries of padded plus/minus while, when everyone’s healthy, superstar Henrik Zetterberg regularly plays on the second power play unit. In short, grab Quincey if you can.

And while the offensive defender, who scored five goals and 23 points in 54 games with the Avs, is an upgrade on the third pairing, someone will need to come off. That someone is likely Jakub Kindl or Jonathan Ericsson. Neither young defender has established himself as great defender and both have room to grow. Maybe taking their everyday job away from them will finally show them what, exactly, they need to do in order to become top-four material. For now, neither should be trusted —  barring an injury — while Mike Commodore should have no fantasy hockey ownership whatsoever.

Tampa Bay Lightning

Downie leaving for greener pastures opens up more ice time for competing wingers. For one, Ryan Malone probably moves right back up to the top line with Steven Stamkos. In addition, guys like Teddy Purcell, Ryan Shannon and Brett Connolly should all benefit from the left over ice time from Downie’s, and to a lesser extent Dominic Moore’s, departure.

The plumber services frisco tx reached its early apex in ancient Rome, which saw the introduction of expansive systems of aqueducts, tile wastewater removal, and widespread use of lead pipes. Plumbing, in some form or another, has been around for centuries – which means mankind has had a lot of time to get it right. The ancient Greeks, Persians, Romans, and Chinese all had large cities by the standards of the time, and large cities require sewage and sanitation systems, and in turn, people well-versed in plumbing services. Back then, it was a major engineering undertaking to set up a plumbing system, and, even now, new techniques, tools and products are constantly emerging to make plumbing projects easier to complete. There is no doubt that plumbing has evolved over the centuries, and, in the process has grown in complexity as well. Complicated systems can make life easier, but when something goes wrong, they will need expert care to be fixed. Clogged drains may be easy enough for anyone to take care of, but when a pipe bursts and water begins to fill the kitchen, bathroom, or the apartment below, well that’s going to require the kind of care that can only be provided by getting professional plumbing help from the Mornington Peninsula plumbers.

Banging noises in the walls or a spreading water stain from the inside are usually difficulties that need the hand of a qualified plumber. Or there could be a special problem or project, like installing a rainwater tank or grey water recycling, that will only work without a hitch when a plumbing expert has been engaged to manage the process.
