    I still think that Quick has had too much of an impact on the team not to get recognized in some way.

  2. Gann Matsuda says:

    You can make a case for Quick, but this was clearly Kopitar’s team. He was their best player in all three zones. All you have to do is look at what the team has become without him to know that he is their most valuable player.

      Such a good point. Take Quick from the line-up and he can be replaced by someone equally, if not more, competent (Bernier). Therefore it’s almost impossible to say he is the most valuable player. There are nly a handful of guys in the league who could replace Kopitar and none of them plays for Los Angeles.

    O don’t get me wrong I definately agree with you that Kopitar was the leader. But I’m saying that without Quick, Kopitar wouldn’t be able to lead them to the playoffs. Maybe he isn’t the most valuable player but he should be rewarded for being such a vital part to the team.

  4. Gann Matsuda says:

    That doesn’t make any sense. We’re talking about the team’s most valuable player award. The Kings don’t have an award that the media votes on that fits what you’re talking about.
