You know the DL mantra...right price, right fit, blah blah....he's going to be patient.
If anyone doesn't fit that mantra, it's Quick.

I can see DL waiting on the CBA for sure, but once that's settled he has to man up here and admit that the only reason the Kings are in the playoffs and he still has a job is because Quick used his Wonder Twin powers and morphed into a sheet of plywood most nights. Quick has a ton of power in these negotiations, about all DL can do is try to stop him from being the highest paid goalie in the league. If Quick wins the cup and Conn Smythe and Vezina, look out.
