Kyle Quincey is still available as an unrestricted free agent.
It's unclear what kind of interest he has generated on the open market, but he did struggle last season while appearing in only 47 contests for Detroit. However, he is a serviceable blueliner, who can log 19 minutes of ice time per game while picking up hits and blocks, so it's a bit surprising that he hasn't found a new team yet. Aug 8 - 11:09 AM
