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.
And we've had hyped up goalies dominate a European league come here before and play terrible. I'm not saying Markstrom will. I expect him to be very good. But to think it's not possible that he will struggle is pretty ridiculous.
