Another reason to hate the Blues (as if I need any more).

Quick is certainly already an All-Timer among all Kings netminders. You really can't compare wins with Rogie because of shootout victories. That would be unfair to Vachon. But as far as where Quick currently stands in comparison to his peers, he might already be the best in relative terms to former Kings goaltenders to their peers. Has any King goaltender (other than Quick) ever been considered a top 5 type goaltender in the league at the height of his time with the Kings?

I would say Quick and Vachon, then that's it. The rest can't be considered "great" just good or not bad.

Hrudey actually picked the Kings to beat Vancouver before the series started on CBC

If you guys want a good trivia question to stump your buddies, ask them what NHL team did Grant Fuhr play his last game for. I'll bet 99 out of 100 won't get it without looking it up (and same goes for you guys in here )

You had it at Calgary.

I was surprised he went there considering the Oilers connection, and man was he bad that year. I don't hold anything against a player wanting to stay in the NHL as long as possible, but that's a season of his career I can do with forgetting about.
