No one is blaming everything on one player...and while the Kings have a playoff spot there really should be a better word than "blame" as it is what it is and as long as we are in the playoffs no one should be complaining.

That said-I dont think speculating on Quick's effectiveness should be considered some type of blasphemy and debating his stats can reveal some inherent truisms. Some that I find telling are....

From the start of the season to the end of February- Quicks save percentage was .900 or better 11 times in 14 games. Since February has has only posted a .900 or better 11 times in 21 games. To put that in perspective- over last season over the entire span of 69 games he only failed to post .900 or better 18 times.

So 69 games last season, only 18 games in which he failed to beat .900 sv%
From February of this season in 21 games, 10 games in which he failed to beat .900 sv%
