As for Ellerby, he's a trainwreck defensively and one of my most disliked players in a long time. I tried to go in with an open mind tonight, but his turnover was just flat out bad.
Markstrom has played in, no dominated, a professional league for the last two years, the SEL which is a better league than the AHL. He'll have to get used to the N.A. game, but he should be placed higher on the depth chart than Plante right now. He'll have to earn it, but I'm sure he will. Plante is underrated this is true, but there is every justification for the way Markstrom has been hyped up. It's hardly an impetus for amazement.
