How About This Fucking Contract Right Here? Stanley Cup Champion L.A. Kings and Jonathan Quick Agree to 10 Year, Estimated at $58 Million Contract

10 years…of that beautiful creature we know and love as our impenetrable wall in net. Our goaltender who led with a 1.41 GAA and .946 save percentage in the playoffs. Our goaltender who helped the team go 16-4. Our goaltender who was the foundation of our Stanley Cup Championship team. Our goaltender named Jonathan Quick.

The deal is 10 years long, which means we have Jonathan Quick for 11 more years – it won’t kick in until after next season. “Assuming he stays with the team 11 years.” Fuck off. He’s ours.

The dollar number is reportedly $58 million. That is a cap hit shy of $6 million which means two things. 1) That’s awesome and 2) I lost a bet to Surly.

I haven’t looked at the Guess the Jonathan Quick Contract Game to see if anyone nailed it. I would be impressed if anyone did.

In the meantime, if you’ll excuse me, I have to go and figure out how I can let out a FUCK YEAH! in a full office.

  1. Hear, O Israel!

    Let us be without injury.

  2. Didnt think he would ge a 10 year contract but stoked he did. the cap is also getting raised by 6 millon so still got some room to go after a free agent!

  3. Sealing this deal means more elite team status and a great future for Cups and all of the best that hockey can provide to us LA fans. Besides, it is just outstanding that we get to see him and all of his phenomenal skills, especially shutting down shooters in those shootouts. I can smell a lot more shoot out wins in the teams future.

  4. Omfg. Fuuyuck yeah bitches. Lord Stanley better get use to LA, He will surely broski back.

    Sweet Jesus I’d hate to be within a 2 mile radius of tuan without a hazmat suit. -__-

  5. Wow… I’m so happy to lose the cap game. I had one of the lowest cap hits (6.1) but I picked only 5 years because I figured they see if this year was a “fluke” or abnormal and he’d get the huge money later.

    The biggest thing, if this is true, is Jonathan Quick is a fucking MAN. He is always talking about the team and deflecting attention. A lot of times it is half bullshit because that is what you’re supposed to say.

    But Quick fucking lives it and he could have gotten at least a million more on some other team that is desperate. Just take a look at who makes more than him (assuming 5.8).

    God damn, this summer is just getting better. Quick… YOU DA MAN!!

  6. I am very surprised at the length and low amount of money on it, there must be a no trade clause in there to get it that low, I bet Quick saw what happened to the last guy that took a pay cut to be a King longer (see Jack Johnson).

  7. Don’t like the deal at all. Dipietro, Luongo, Bryzgalov, these long goaltender contracts so rarely work out. Quick had a great Cup run and a couple good seasons, both behind fantastic defense corps that shield him like crazy. I dont think that warrants this type of contract.

    • Lundqvist signed a 6 year, 41 million dollar contract for a $6.8 million dollar cap hit. Would you rather have that or a 10 year deal at $58 million for a goalie about to enter his prime? Especially since the contract appears to be front loaded. I equate Quick to Lundqvist. Great goalie, benefits from great defense, risen with the team, paid his dues, everything about him (God given skillset, work ethic, character) indicate he will only get better. And the fact he has benefited from the Kings D in front of him means little to the contract. EVERY great goaltender that has won Cups has had that benefit. That doesn’t diminish the goalie’s worth. It is part of having a balanced Stanley Cup winning team. Now, if you don’t think Jonathan Quick is a good enough goalie to merit that contract, let’s hear what you have to say.

    • You are out of your fucking mind! He’s the best goalie in the league.
      He has been a top 5 goalie for three years in the entire league.
      Quick could’ve easily walked and gotten 7 million per year at 5-10 other teams and instead showed some loyalty.
      Leave the player evaluations to someone else because you don’t know what the fuck you’re saying or doing apparently!!
      Shut up!

  8. Wow- this is awesome. Quick is awesome! This fucking guy, can you believe it…? I thought he would be at $6.8m.

    He could have gone to a crappy team and made at least a million more but he said no, I’m part of the Black Parade- I’m a King. Doughty better stand up and protect him between the whistles.

    • This is why I will always respect Quick more than Doughty. Doughty was all about himself and Quick was all about the team, he gave a discount and didn’t make a big deal about it. Fuck DD and he better never, ever get a letter while I’m a Kings fan!!! Go for 2 Kings!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  9. The “insider” reports that Elias has returned from vacation and “found” the game 6 puck in his equipment bag. Imagine that. And to top it off the Kings have volunteered to donate to a charity of Elias’s choice to get it back. Fucking douche bag sore loser!

    • I want him out, get Sanford or Roloson for Quick’s back-up. Get a puck moving defenseman for Bernier or a couple of high draft picks. Bernier sucks and anybody that knows goaltending should already have seen that. His mental toughness stinks, his technique is inconsistent and he starts out games giving up two bad goals and the Kings lose by one. Don’t believe me? Look at the fucking numbers from last year!!

  10. I predicted a 5.85 cap hit but for only 6 years. Almost had the cap dead on. And I was one of the first folks on here to guess under 6 mil cap hit.

    Quick didn’t strike me as a player who would demand huge money, but rather something the organization could manage and keep future options strong. Quick is a team player and this contract personifies that.

  11. Way to go Quick! Pack your family up brotha you are all now officially West Coast royalty.

  12. So Quickie got the same as Rinne — $7-mil per for the front-loaded first seven seasons, with $3-mil per for the last three to make the deal cap-friendly.

    Pretty much what we expected. A lot of the edge of a long-term deal is taken off by the movability of the contract in its last years.

    Hopefully, we’ll never have to think about moving Quick. Maybe he can become another Brodeur. Or Roy. Or Quick.
