I do like a large calf and large vastus medialis on the quad and able to do it without squats or concentrating on squats
My primary goal with leg strength is to improve my stride/explosiveness for playing hockey. I've noticed a huge improvement on how quickly I can get up to full speed since putting in more work on my leg/core strength.
