I would say that the Kings having 5 top 15 and 3 top 5 draft picks in the last 5 years (and this with no 2011 1st round pick because they included it in the Penner trade) makes it kind of hard to compare their model to the Wings model who haven't had a pick higher than 19 since 1991. The Wings can't model themselves after the Wings without losing a lot more in the future. Additionally, the Kings have some good players but are kind of having a Cinderella playoffs I don't think they are going to be perennial contenders for the WCF.

Before you can go modeling after anybody you must start with a goaltender as good as Quick.Howard is not that.

coming into this season, quick wasnt really one of those goalies either. it will take time to decide if he is finally playing up to potential this year or overplaying his abilities this year.

I love Maltby, but to say he wasn't a ****** is a dis-service to his career of douchebaggery.

Howard and Quick are very similier goalies. Not style wise, but numbers wise. Very close in their careers.
