Came pretty close with those numbers. Nice to see Quick remain loyal to the team and allow the Kings to have some flexibility to make some upgrades on July 1 (or down the road).

For those nitpicking about the length of the contract, can you see 10 years into the future?

Correct, since he's still signed to his previous contract for another year. Then the cap hit jumps up to $5.8M over the next 10 seasons, starting in 2013-14.

It's great that they signed him up for longer, but isn't 10 years a little bit much?
He's a great goalie, but you can't see that far down his career, it's a little iffy to me.
However his potential is there, and he does derserve a good contract.

Longer than I hoped, but I can't argue with 5.8M.

The length is the only way to get that cap hit, so we should all love that it's a ten year deal.

It's not any riskier than any other long term deal in the league. You can't guarantee a player's health nor viability long term. Goaltenders are usually more unpredictable than anyone else, so we understand that.

We'll have to see what kind of details, NMCs, NTCs, etc. before we can really judge the deal. If Quick has a full NMC for ten years, then ouch, yeah, that's quite the risk. However, I'm sure Lombardi structured it so that he can have the option to trade or waive Quick in the waning years of his contract if his play has dropped off that much.

And again, this is a goaltender who has never had a major injury (knock on wood) because of his commitment to fitness and health. Quick was played into the ground in 09/10, starting over 70 games, and came back into camp for 10/11 in better shape so he could last longer down the stretch. Kid is committed and as mentally tough as any player in the NHL. He has proved all of this over the last three years.

Lombardi did not hand out this contract on a whim because Quick came out of nowhere and had one fantastic season. Quick has improved every year he's been in the NHL and shown the utmost commitment to his physical health, the team, and improving his own game. There's not much more you can ask for from a player, hence the long term deal. Lombardi is not one to just hand out these kinds of contracts. He's played hardball with every single player he's signed to a deal, including his stars. Just look at the Doughty situation last season. Lombardi clearly has faith in Quick, and he should.

Ten years is a long time, but we got him for a really good price. I'm happy.

Let's see... Quick at $5.8MM/yr, or Carey Price at $6.5MM/yr. LOL

My guess is that Price rumor/contract is being re-negotiated as we speak. You're welcome, Montreal.

Kudos to us DL and JQ!


Another amazing DL signing. Just amazing. I don't know how he does it but he does.

We are set on the back end for the next several years for certain for the first time in our history.

I LOVE IT!!!!

This deal will be even better when it doesn't have a NTC/NMC attached.

But the contracts are registered with the league (agenst usually give out that information too) and currently none of the Kings have any NTC/NMC attached. According to capgeek.com:

http://www.capgeek.com/charts.php?Team=17

Kings also only release the terms of a contract, yet everyone knows the cap hit pretty quickly.
