Harry How/Getty ImagesJonathan Quick is positioning himself to make a run at the starting job in the Olympics.There were moments during the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver, British Columbia, that backup Team USA goalie Jonathan Quick would watch Ryan Miller shine on the international stage and imagine being out there. It's impossible not to. He was one of three American goalies on the roster, joining Miller and Tim Thomas, and so close to the action.
"Obviously that crosses your mind that you'd love to be out there; you wish you could be out there playing in that situation," Quick said during a Tuesday afternoon phone conversation. "Just kind of experiencing it, watching the game firsthand and being there was a great experience."
