Quick Signs 10 year, $58MM deal ($5.8MM AAV) through 2022-23
 
http://kings.nhl.com/club/news.htm?id=636351

Haven't seen the money numbers yet.

EDIT: Typoed the subject line -- can a mod fix it to 2022-23?

kingsfan 06-28-2012 03:11 PM

Speculation now begins. I say $69.5 million, or a $6.95 million cap hit.

EDIT: Can someone fix the title. It says 2022-13, should read 2022-2023

Awesome news.

The Butcher 06-28-2012 03:11 PM

Done deal.

Wow.

Being a Kings fan is just too f***ing cool right now.

BigBrown 06-28-2012 03:11 PM

10 years? I love and hate this.

KopitarFAN 06-28-2012 03:13 PM

With it being 10 years, i'm thinking closer to 6. Maybe 6.3.

MxK1NGS 06-28-2012 03:14 PM

Buh bye Bernier!

The Butcher 06-28-2012 03:14 PM

To everyone a little skeptical of the length...

Even if Quickie burns out, he's earned this contract more than any other King in the history of the organization.

Herby 06-28-2012 03:15 PM

I was in agreement with K17 that anything over five years is a stretch in getting value, but I was cool with 7-8 years since it essentially paid him for what he has accomplished this season and next at 1.8 mill. Ten years does that and then some. But again, you can't complain, I expect him to be great for the nxt 6-7 years and really good for the rest of the years, maybe not 6-7 mill good, but no big deal he earned every penny.

This will probably lower the AAV since Quick would be dumb to not take say 6 million at age 34 and 35. So I'll guess 10 years, 60-64 million.

Regardless, this is a great signing. And again, better to overpay for guys who put in the years with you than to pay guys for what they did on other teams.

Hopefully this also solidifies a Quick statue one day being outside of SC.

Martyros 06-28-2012 03:15 PM

I really hope it's at most 6.5 million with that many years.

vh2k7 06-28-2012 03:17 PM

Don't like long term goalie deals but I also don't care right now. Way to go Quickie, I'll have your jersey soon enough.

I am thinking/hoping optimistically that the cap hit winds up just north of 6m. Maybe inflated SLIGHTLY in case the next CBA rolls back the salary cap.

KopitarFAN 06-28-2012 03:17 PM

Lebrun says first 7 years are $7M, then it tapers off. So probably 6.5-ish.

CNS 06-28-2012 03:17 PM

$7M through 7 yrs then tapers off to lower cap hit. Awesome!

cyclones22 06-28-2012 03:19 PM

Holy cow. No way it's a 7mil hit. It's gotta be in the 6's somewhere.

I really thought we would get him at 4.5 mill like the one poster here said!

Telos 06-28-2012 03:21 PM

Can't argue it. The greatest goaltender in Kings history, lock him up for his career.... He isn't going anywhere.

kingsholygrail 06-28-2012 03:21 PM

I'm still way too high on the SC win to feel that bad about the length.

Chris43 06-28-2012 03:21 PM

I am guessing
7 - 7 - 7 - 7 - 7 - 7 - 7 - 4 - 2.5 - 2.0
for a 5.8 AAV

Sorry Herby but you must be kidding right? All he's done since he's been here has lead us to wins and a cup. Rinne made $7M for 7 yrs and he's way older than Quick.

I tweeted this and I think most of you will feel the same: I'm not afraid of length or cap hit, I'm afraid of NOT having Quick. He's stolen so many games for us. You need good goaltending to win and we proved that this year.

What, you don't want a "sandly" Quick statue? ;)

That would be awesome.

It could be a bit lower than that. Can't wait to hear the numbers!

KINGS17 06-28-2012 03:26 PM

If it's ten years the cap hit better be closer to $6M than $7M

Ziggy Stardust 06-28-2012 03:27 PM

I told you guys there is no way the Kings let Quick test the market in his prime years when he's 31. Now that the final piece of the core is locked up long term, Lombardi knows where his team and his cap numbers stand going into the future and he can operate accordingly when he signs a big name free agent this Sunday.

Rorschach 06-28-2012 03:27 PM

If true, a deal in the 7s that goes to the mid 6s that lasts 10 years, then this is a great deal on paper. It's buying many UFA years.
