And to think, I kept waiting for Quick to become mediocre so that Bernier would take over the starting job.

A big part of the reason I like this contract so much is that it's not a payment for potential, it's a reward for results.

Pekka Rinne and Roberto Luongo have won **** all in this league, and they're now getting paid around the same or more than a guy who won a Cup. If that's not a bargain any team would take, I don't know what is.

Last year capgeek didn't know about Bryzgalov's NTC. None of the fans did either until Ken Campbell mentioned it in an article in The Hockey News, so I emailed capgeek to ask them and they found out he had it and added it to their site.

Doesn't Carter have a NTC as well thus the whole issue with PHI trading him before it kicked in? I thought he did, but nothing shows on CapGeek.

**edit - Nvm, I guess it was removed once he got traded

hm, didn't realize that Quick had a record setting playoff run. Is it weird that I didn't think he should have gotten the Conn Smythe even after that run? I still felt it was Brown we relied on, more than anybody. Maybe I'm getting so used to elite goaltending that I'm not giving Quick enough credit.

Same with Richards. Looks like the Kings didn't honour either one. Columbus said they'd honour Carter's but I don't know if it happened.

I like it, a core member locked up a long time for a good hit. I think we have a good nucleus with Quick, Doughty, Richards, Kopitar, and Carter locked up a long time.

I have said for some time that I think Quick leads the Kings in mental toughness.

The length of the deal concerns me, but the cap hit is very favorable and I would have expected it to be higher even with the 10 years.

Rooting for Quick to be one of the best of all time, and the best the Kings have had and will ever have.

Quick was incredible in terms of saving simple shots that should have been goals. Teams couldn't score vs him on the rush, and couldn't score from point shots. He didn't need to make flashy saves, but he made saves other goalies wouldn't be able to by seeing pucks through screens and smothering rebounds

It is a case that the team as a whole outplayed everyone so badly it didn't seem as if Quick did much. But 30 goals in a full cup run is just crazy. Especially when you consider that it is the same as Pittsburgh gave up in just the first round.

Quick never gave up more than three goals and only gave up three twice.

Kings just dominated everyone defensively and quick was a big part of that. The kings break out of their own zone was a thing of beauty and only NJ gave the kings a little bit of trouble and they still went up 3-0 in the series.

one thing i noticed, though, was that there wasn't many quality shots on Quick in the overall. It was often in the perimeter and cleared out by the defense very quickly. While Quick stole 2 games (which is a feat in itself), i wouldn't compare it to Giguere's historic run. In Giguere's case, it was clear the Ducks had no business winning, he willed them to victory. how many overtimes did they get into that year because Giguere wouldn't let a goal in? Those were the best runs I've ever seen.

Anyways, I don't feel comfortable chopping down Quick's accomplishments, because they are phenomenal and I'm a huge fan of his. Just always felt that Brown was the player that "willed" the team into the cup. He faded away on a few games in NJ, but that's pennies compared to what he did earlier. Quick probably would have been my #2 pick after Brown. Kopitar and Doughty were awesome as well.

That I think comes back to how effortlessly the Kings won. Quick didn't have to steal the games he just played great and put up the best numbers in cup history.

You hit it on the head. I think Quick is the kind of guy who will make sure that for any quickness (pardon the pun) he loses with age he will be gaining wisdom and knowlege to carry him the lenght of a healthy NHL career.

His mental strength has been put to the test many times over the last 3 seasons and he just seems to be gettting stronger, better, and more consistant with every passing season.

I'm usually a wait-and-see kind of guy but my gut is telling me this might be the best signing in LA King history.

With a really good 12-13 season he could also become the franchise leader in Wins and Shutouts.

It is weird that you thought that, considering Brown's play dropped off for a little bit at the beginning of the finals. It was not by much, but Quick definitely deserved the Conn Smythe.

I have no issues with the media giving the Conn Smythe to Quick, he had amazing statistics, but I think Doughty was the best player from game 1 to game 20.

Couldn't really go wrong with Brown, Doughty or Quick. Quick just had the eye-popping stats.
