Try To Move Jonathan Quick?

from Steven Ellis of The Hockey News,

That the Neal-Lucic swap happened, though, offers another rival fanbase hope that they, too, can rid themselves of what is quickly becoming an albatross of a contract. We’re speaking of the Los Angeles Kings, of course, who might want to start thinking about how they’re going to rid themselves of the final four seasons of Jonathan Quick’s 10-year, $58-million deal.

While Quick’s goals-against average and save percentage improved after his third game of the season, a 5-2 loss to the Vegas Golden Knights, the bad news it that as we enter into the third week of the NHL campaign, the 33-year-old netminder possesses a 6.43 GAA and .793 SP. Even though that’s a small sample size, it’s one of the worst starts by a supposed No. 1 netminder in some time. And those are just the simple surface numbers. His .818 SP at 5-on-5 ranks last among the 37 goaltenders with at least three games played, his .632 high-danger SP at five-a-side is third-last among the same group of netminders and Quick’s minus-6.25 goals-saved above average is the worst among all goalies
