Hi everybody, I hope your all doing good wherever you may be! Here is an article on what exactly makes Carey Price so good and why he is everybody’s favourite goalie.

So down below this is a visual diagram of what makes Carey so good for those of you who are more “visual learners”.

Here is a picture for those of you who are more “visual learners”

So Lets start with the most important part of being a goaltender and that is the mental strength. Without a doubt what makes Carey so good, so consistent and so much more is his mental strength. For example when a goalie has a 40-50 shutout/win, the next game is how you can tell whether that goalie strong mentally or not because if hes not, everything will go straight to his head and it will reflect his GAA, Sv% and overall performance and the same goes for a bad goal, we all can remember the goal Derek Morris scored on Jonathan Quick in the Western Conference final from center ice this year? Well after that you couldn’t even tell that the goal happened to Quick and that is the type of Mental Toughness Carey Has. Thats very similiar to when Carey let in a softy on the 1st shot of the 1st preason game in 2010-11, fresh off of the Halak/Price wars and after that Carey had what I think was by far the best season of his young career too date.and his stats prove it.

Now Carey’s stick work. One of Carey’s biggest assets are his intelligent stick usage, he uses his stick to block pucks from going across the crease occasionially but its mostly when he is using his stick to guide pucks into the corners exactly where he wants them but more importantly where they need to be. Carey also uses a paddle down method to defend against rap arounds and to block parts of the net on fast cross crease passes that he can’t react to and/or can’t defend against.

How could I forget about Carey’s lightning quick glove hand. A lot of people ask how Carey has such a quick glove hand and its fairly simple. It starts with a lower glove position building coverage from the bottom up which is the entire goal of the butterfly goaltender, combine that with a more outward glove position which takes away the angle and lightning quick reflexes and you have one of the best gloves in the league.

Now is Carey’s leg work which a lot of people idol over. Lots of people say how Carey has such a “sexy” butterfly and rarely gets beat down low, well it starts with knowng when to use a narrow and a wide butterfly, He uses a narrow to put pucks to the corners on sharp angles and give the illusion of an open five hole while putting his knees and heels together. Carey then uses a wide butterfly when theres no high risk if he were too kick out a rebound into the slot or when going into a block in tight or when he cannot see.

Noware Carey’s pushes and these are without a doubt what makes him so popular and why everybody wants to be Carey Price. Now what makes Carey’s play so appealing and has people drooling over how “he makes it look so easy and effortless” is because of every- thing he is doing down low. It starts with using his hole entire foot when doing backside pushes across the crease and he pushes almost exactly the right amount to get to where he needs to be next and has least amount of movement to do in his next push. But its really when he pushes (whether its a T-push, shuffle, backside push or anything else) he is not moving his arms an inch, only his core moves when he rotates and his legs when he pushes.

Hey everybody, I hope your doing well wherever you may be! For my first post I thought what could possibly be better than an up close look and description for what Jonathan Quick is using between the pipes, lets get started.

First of all I just wanted to let everybody know that below is the Jpeg files of Quick setup I made for those of you who are visual learners or just too lazy to read the article itself (kinda like myself), here it is.

Heres the picture for those of you who are visual learners

Too start off, lets begin with Jonathan’s goal pads. Quick uses Vaughn V4 7600 Professional custom goal pads, some of his mods include…

-Stock V4 Protection        -One break below the knee, both internal and external and no breaks above the knee     -Narrow V2 leg channel      -Top 2 straps are both nylon click-in straps, one of which is below the knee on inside and other is above the knee on the outside       -Custom V4 graphic with alternate coloured “dragon tails” on the left and right pads       -Quick typically goes through 3 pairs of pads per season and takes 2 practices to break them in before using them in games

Now we’ll go to his blocker and catch gloves..

-Stock V4 7600 Blocker and goes through 8 of them per season     -Stock V4 catch glove with the top of the T-web stiffened and Quick goes through 8 gloves per season alongside 3 practice glove with extra protection

Now for his Warrior Swagger goal stick…..

-Quick’s goal stick is almost identical to the retail version except a slight tweak to the stand mid-curve at the toe   -26.5′ paddle, 29.5″ Shaft and a lie of 14      -The color pattern is the same as the retail version       -Quick goes through over 100 sticks per season, I’m not even kidding!

Now Quick’s Vaughn Epic 8800 Chest Protector….

-Pro 2010 stock model    -Large sized chest protector with medium sized arms     -Additional 1/8″ of low density foam behind the forearms and bicep floaters

and last but not least, the skates that give Jonathan the most explosive powerful pushes in the world….

-Bauer Supreme One100 skates with One60 cowlings      -Sized 10 E/A with some slight undisclosed modifications to prevent lace bites       -Quick alternates 3 sets of blades in his skates only using them for 3-4 times before getting new ones to help maintain height, power and “freshness”      -Jonathan’s skates are sharpened to 3/8″ hollow with 60-120 profile on 4mm blades

Please not that a lot of the information in this post is from InGoal Magazine and here is the link to the post

So thats everything on Jonathan Quick’s gear setup. I hope you enjoyed this article and below is a picture with all the information above with just a little more colour and a picture of Quickie in action.
