Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety - B. Franklin.
If "off his game" means he's not putting up the ****ing INSANE numbers that he did during last years playoffs... or single handedly dragging an underperforming team into said playoffs... then yes... he's a bit "off his game". But that "game" is simply impossible to maintain over a full career. If people expect Quick to be the Quick from last seasons playoffs all the time.... then ****ing reserve a seat for him in the Hall of Fame and start getting new plaques made for the Vezina **** cus it's going to be renamed "Quick".
Let the man be "only really really good" for a game or two.
Actually, Doc, I think he's been struggling to find his angles. He's been overplaying some chances and he's actually been looking for his posts now and then.
I'm not blaming him for losses and a goalie lets in a softie every once in a while. And his results so far have really been more about the team's play than his in particular. But he looks slightly uncomfortable out there.
That said, he'll have had 4 days rest going into Friday and he's the #1 guy. Ya play him.
