Here are Terry Murray’s further thoughts about Jonathan Quick, including the disclosure that he planned to have a meeting with Quick today. Shortly, I’ll post Quick’s thoughts, both about his play and his new contract…
Question: Do you personally address the goalies a lot, or do you leave most of that to Bill (Ranford)?
MURRAY: “A lot of that is left to Bill. He spends a lot of time with them on the ice, off the ice, reviewing their game. I’m going to have a meeting here with Quick now, now that practice is over. I think it’s important to have a little bit of a conversation. To me, when I watch the game unfold last night, I’m seeing a little bit of a lack of concentration only. I’m not going to get into the technical stuff. I’ll leave that to the goaltending coach.
“But from the mental side of the game, the focus needs to be there. There is a responsibility with being the No. 1 goaltender. He clearly has to understand that. That sometimes has an effect on goaltenders, whenever they are given that label. It’s a very big responsibility, but I want to just reassure him that we’re looking for him to be just a goaltender. Go out and play the game the right way, keep your focus and give us an opportunity to win any game.”
