Parise's got a twisted ankle. Kovalchuk's got a bad back. Tough breaks fro the Devils.

But the fact remains that he has a lot to prove before even reaching Marty's level. Yes, he looks to be a great goalie who has long term potential. It just doesn't make any sense to mention or assume that he could reach Marty's level at this point. We're talking years and years of winning.

Well that craps off this ****** day for me.

I really wanted to see the Kings win The Cup in front of their fans AND keep their road record perfect. Now they can only attain one of those goals.

Lousy stinking no good rotten Swamp Gas Bags.

As I said in the first sentence of the post you quoted. The issue I'm taking is your post reads like "Quick isn't even close to Brodeur's career, therefore he will have a meh career." Quick has a long way to go, but 15 years ago the exact same thing could have been said about Brodeur having a career like Brodeur.

Like you said...he could fade away. Then again, he could do big things. Time will tell and that's the key. It's just too damn early for people (not you specifically) to start making any kind of comparisons when Quick has so far to go still is all.

Yeah, I'm getting tired of road teams winning. Haven't had a home team win since '07, and I don't really acknowledge the legitimacy of that franchise/series, so you basically have to go back to the Hurricanes in '06. It's been a long time.

Positive point: The Cup will be hoisted on NBC.
