How about the defense which allows guys to skate circles around them this game to get to Quick? He hasn't been as good this season but he litterally carried them to the playoffs last year.

We would not have a cup without Quick. We would not have even gotten to the playoffs without Quick. If he has one subpar season where he doesn't save every single shot in sight, fine, **** happens. The Kings are still winning the majority of their games this year. Good God, even if he was playing like a beer league goaltender out there the one guy who deserves a mulligan this season is Jonathan ****ing Quick.

I'm not saying that he shouldn't be criticized but the calls to replace him, trade him, etc. are ridiculous. Give the guy a shot to right himself, hasn't he deserved that much?
Nobody has been calling for him to be traded. That's a little sensational. Nobody is saying he's not an elite goalie. All the criticsims I've seen are talking about him right now and how that will effect the cup run this year. There are issues he's battling through physically, mentaly and on top of that he's not used to the type of defense he's been getting in front of him. He'll be alright and he's getting better of late.
