That was a fantastic article, thanks for sharing it. I went to middle school in Hamden for a while so I've got to imagine that I crossed paths with Quick at some point considering I'm only a year older than him. So glad to see that he's proving all the doubters wrong who said he never played well in the Playoffs.

Just 3 more lucky wins left.

Terrific read. I'm sure there's articles similar to this for a lot of our players hometowns. Great stuff.

It mentions "butterfly style" in the article which leads me to a question since I know next to nothing about goalie technique. When I think of a traditional butterfly goaltender, or at least what people have told me is a butterfly goaltender... it's not Quick. Not even close. Bernier is more what I would consider that but even then I still have doubts.

I don't even know if Quick has a previously-defined style. Hybrid? What the hell do you call Quick's style? Quickstyle?

They were talking about this on NHL network today, they called it crab style and there isn't another goalie who could mimic it because you have to be naturally athletic and built like him.

On JB he plays a high bred style, cross between stand up and butterfly. Not a traditional butterfly

Don Cherry brought this up in game 1, how neither goalie is a butterfly goalie, Brodeur obviously being standup and he said Quick is more of a hybrid, but more of a style unique to him, since he has no standup to his style to be a traditional hybrid, but he relies on reactions like a standup instead of percentages like a butterfly. Then went on to say how kids growing up now will begin to imitate Quick and it could be the style of the future

I dont even know how to describe his style, I guess it revolves around always having sight on the puck so you can rely on reactions to save shots rather than filling the net and letting the puck hit you

What impresses me so much about Quick is his leg strength. At times he'll sprawl to make a save, nearly do the splits and then purely with his legs bring himself back up to almost a stand-up position - bouncing up onto his skates every once in a while.

It's incredible that he's 100 games in to the season and still that well-conditioned.

Bill Ranford said Quick has legs like tree trunks. Quick has the most powerful push, Ranford has every seen (according to him). I think that is why Quick is able to get to pucks other goalies can't...

Basically all he asked was where did he play his high school hockey. I think he said he knew the coach there

Very good read. Quick is the man.

Connecticut doesn't produce a lot of talent but when they do, they're usually pretty damn good players. You obviously have Leetch, Janney, and Drury as mentioned in the article as their past stars. But along with Quick, you also have Max Pacioretty and Kevin Shattenkirk now plying the trade in the NHL. It's great to see New England hockey (after a dreadful down period of at least a decade if not longer) start to recover.
