    Quick Rocks !

    You just can’t say enough about this guy, eh ? Look, I’m a huge LA Kings fan (ie: I’m also a big Elvis fan) yet I too admit that if it weren’t for Quick, right now we Kings would either be teeing it up in Palm Springs or making wooden clogs with the Sedins over in Sweden. Besides his obvious “top notch” stats, Quick plays with a certain “panache” that is consistent with the very best of all time … and unlike a lot of these other goaltenders (ie: Roberto Luongo) who rely exclusively on “highway billboard-sized” equipment to make saves, Quick does it with athleticism, x-ray vision, cat-like reflexes and unabashed zeal ! The bottom line is that he’s the best in the business today !

    GO KINGS GO ! :) :) :) :) :) :) :)
