I will say this though, Quick needs to show he can show up at the end of the year and in the playoffs even though he has statistically he has improved very much this year compared to last season. He put in a lot of work in the offseason, and it's paying off. So the chances are good that he will be successful at the end of the year.
Dean Lombardi is looking for that Goalie that can carry the Kings at times during the playoffs. That's when we'll know who the Goalie of the future is.
good assessment, thanks for the background - it will help my decision (Quick, haha)
