Which may happen. On the flip side that's all speculation.

Keep in mind here that Quick's really not overworking himself. The schedule is compressed, but he's also playing fewer minutes than he has in the past few years. Last year for example he played 82.16% of the minutes during the regular season. This year he's played 71.37% of the minutes. That's a significant drop off in minutes played.

And let's not exclude the fact he played every minute of the Kings Stanley Cup run, all 20 games, including some overtimes. His workload last year was actually more than this year, even with the compressed schedule.

So while his numbers could go down by playing all the games, it could be argued his earlier numbers may have actually gone up as he seems to do better with a heavier workload.
