    However, I believe itís no secret, and most GMís would agree he has significant risk of injury and how it relates to his long contract.
    The most effective move any of the Western Conference GMs could make would be none - to ensure he stays put, where ineffective play, injury and a millstone of a contract will remove the Kings as a serious contender for anything.

    I agree with you, I'm quite a critic of Quick... (see my rants how he can't pokecheck to save his life!) But he's STILL the best goalie this team has ever had, by far. And his team not scoring (again!) on front of him is not news.

    I hope this hastens the tear-down and rebuild. But deep down I know the organization isn't going to do that. So yea, it just sucks.

    For me, it sucks because I don't want to see any Kings get hurt...especially not one that has done so much for the franchise.

    Sentiment aside, the Kings need to shore up their goaltender situation. Quick just isn't his former self and never will be again. Without a stellar defense and a high power offense, the team cannot afford a moderate goal tender. Campbell should get the bulk of the work to see if he's ready to be the man. Call it a yearlong tryout. At the same time they need to be finding some talent to fill the whole at goal.

    Banking on (and paying for) an elite goaltender just seems to be the wrong move for this era of NHL hockey, and that's without even taking age or playing style into account. I'm not ignoring the benefits of a 2012 Quick or a 2018 Fleury, but elite goaltending is a costly ingredient that technically could be considered an optional part of the recipe. Like, if you need that much salt, then you're probably missing some other key ingredients from the way Mama used to make it.

    LOL, this whole thread is too rich. OMG Quick is breaking down. Maybe TV producers could hire LGK to be the next cast for House 2.0.

    Itís so true. So rare to see an intelligent post about a lot of things but especially Quick. The argument that you canít pay that much for a goalie is a valid one.... not necessarily correct but valid. The argument that this guy, after what he did last year, is nowhere near what he used to be shows a complete lack of understanding of goaltending and really, hockey in general. LGK only deals in absolutes. The contract might be too much for too long somehow equals he sucks.
