Hey USA, Look Into The Face Of Your Starting Tender

It was announced that Quick will be the USA starting tendy. Are we fucked? I’ve heared a lot of people are nervous about the decision because he hasn’t played his best hockey since winning the Cup and Ryan Miller has been a worthy and reliable tendy for multiple Olympics.

That being said, I have faith in Quick. I know he doesn’t have the sparkling Olympic resume, but Miller is getting old and Quick is the future. Yes, I know Miller put up solid numbers behind Buffalo’s joke of a team and Quick has been hurting for a good chunk of the season, but I gotta believe he’s healthy again and showed it enough to win the starting position. I mean they’re not going to sit Miller on the bench unless they have a good reason to right?

I look at this as a win-win situation. We either get Quick in postseason cup-run form where he was an absolute beast/brick wall/demi-god, or he fucks it all up and plays like shit and we go back to old reliable Miller. But wait, that could cost the USA a game if Quick doesn’t rise to the occasion. Damn, now I’m nervous too. Just don’t fuck this up Quick, we are all counting on you. In Quick we trust.
