I honestly think it will be at least six years, no more than eight. I also think he will get over 7 per, but only slightly. Lombardi is big on your highest paid player being your best player. He believes it sets a precedent for everyone on the team. Currently, the Kings highest paid player is Doughty at 7 per on the dot, with Kopitar right behind him at 6.8. I think Quick will likely get 7.1 or 7.2 on a 6 or 7 year deal.
Going forward, if that were the case, the Kings salary structure would be set in stone for many years. Doughty locked up for six years, Richards for eight, Carter for nine, Kopitar for another four, and Quick for eight. All at manageable cap hits. I like it.
