    The Reign signed a goalie on a PTO yesterday. That leads me to think Quick's injury is more than just "day-to-day"

    EDIT: yup, I was right. Here's a tweet from Curtis Zupke just now

    Quick is a little more than day-to-day, JS said.

    Let's face it, Quick is one of the greatest all time Kings, but right now Campbell is playing better. Hopefully it's just because Quick was trying to play while still not 100%, but as been pointed out his style of play does not lend itself to longevity.

    Quick has to play with the albatross around his neck that his team can't score for ****. He knows that if he gives up a goal, the game may be over right there - so he then tries to do too much, and that gets him into more trouble.

    And if it's a soft goal? it's really over. Like kings teams throughout their entire history, they rarely have the offensive firepower to bail their goalie out.

    Kings should have traded Quick last year while they could have gotten a real good return. Now they're stuck paying him for what 5 more years and his body is breaking down.

    Perhaps the Kings tried? Maybe folks understand that his body is breaking down?

    If GM’s were in the dark about it before, they sure are aware now.

    However, I believe it’s no secret, and most GM’s would agree he has significant risk of injury and how it relates to his long contract.

    Oh god, someone is defending Quick's play? He has been just as bad as the rest of the team. So 17 goals in 4 games played and none of them were his fault? And don't say a couple because it was more than just a couple that was his fault. .845 sv %. Someone needs to take off the Quick goggles. And please don't blame it on not being healthy.
