I told you guys there is no way the Kings let Quick test the market in his prime years when he's 31. Now that the final piece of the core is locked up long term, Lombardi knows where his team and his cap numbers stand going into the future and he can operate accordingly when he signs a big name free agent this Sunday.
A goalie on a ten year contract, what can go wrong?
Worked well for other goalies, at least we know he has proven to be durable before we gave him the big deal.
"It has not been a good day. I lost my glasses early this morning and I had to go buy a pair of 79 dollar reading glasses today. 79 bucks. You can literally get them at Costco, three-for-20." - Darryl Sutter's response to going up 2-0 in the series.
So its over 5. Get you guesses in now. Saying $5.6M AAV.
Assuming LeBrun's comment was right, Dreger really stepped out on a limb there, didn't he? LeBrun said first seven years are $7 million, so that's $49 million. Even at the league minimum for three years, Quick's contract would got over the $50 million mark.
Dreger rarely breaks anything.
I'm guessing the final three years are $5 mill, $4 mill, and $3 mill, so $61 million over 10 years, so about $6.1 million cap hit.
