After practice today...

from Jon Rosen of LA Kings Insider,

On whether lower shot totals against suggest a renewed focus to suppressing shots:

No. Shot totals [against] go up when the bottom part of your order doesn’t hit. It’s true. It’s very true.

On those who believe that Jonathan Quick is not an “elite goalie”:

Well, that’s too bad. Basically, those are the people who don’t want somebody to do well. [Reporter: To prove their theories, yeah.] They don’t want somebody to do well. And now, with all this newfound data that you can use when you lose – instead of use when you win – it’s interesting. [Reporter: But did you see any difference in his game, or was it the team in front of him, I mean the chaos in front of him, on defense, and just working new people in?] … God, October, he was probably the best player in the league. I wouldn’t doubt that. You’ve got to remember, still, it’s like when you’re talking about the boy who scored his first goal last night. He’s played lots of exhibition games and lots of American League games. He’s played a lot of games, same as Jonathan Quick. Jonathan Quick’s had two major surgeries and played more games than any other goaltender in hockey in the last few years, but if you average it all out, who has the most wins? Jeez, I’d hate to think that at age 28 that he’s eroding.
