    Default IS Quick 110%

    The usual Quick is an amazing athlete, always putting in 110% effort. But when you get injured, depending on the injury, many times you don't always completely recover. Since we never get accurate injury diagnosis and prognosis it's hard to know about players. Certainly, it makes sense to not disclose everything...that said, I've been wondering about Quick. I know it's only the first game, or just preseason, but last years numbers were far off from the old Quick. Injuries take time, even Carter just said he is not 100%.

    But then I wondered if it is his injury OR IS IT DEFENSE. A few goals last night it seemed like he didn't know they were coming - could it be defense? Maybe it's both, but with the Kings low scoring offense, if the defense is not there, it's going to be hard to win.

    No, they weren't. They were right in line with his career numbers. Slightly worse GAA, slightly beter SV%.

    Career GAA: 2.28 17-18: 2.40
    Career SV%: .916 17-18:.921

    Geez, the guy won the frickin' Jennings trophy last year. Some folks are just never happy. IMO, Quickie looks as sharp as ever.

    Sure, he lets in the occasional stinker, but I'd choose him as my goalie any day of the week and twice on Sunday. His compete level is off the charts. Loved how he came to Muzz's defense last night.

    Probably one of the most amazing things he does is a full split and then leans backwards! OUCH

    slightly worse = I believe he is not fully recovered, not as good as he was before his injury. In time, maybe he will be there...I hope so. Groin injury is a huge and hard one to overcome.

    Per Rosen via Twitter, Quick is day to day with a lower body injury

    Considering how the Kings usually play in Sunday games I'd prefer to rest quick then myself
