That doesnt mean Theodore isnt capable or serviceable; but right now Markstrom was our #1 and we sent our #1 down to save $$.
No, he's not.
He has a 2.59 GAA this year.
That's what confused me about your post; I understood the rest.
Although I think what SV is trying to say is that consistency = more than 5 games/3 starts (not that that's Markstrom's fault as he hasn't really been given the chance to play more).
All in all, I actually don't think this has much to do with money.
If you ask me who our most talented goalie is, I'd go with Markstrom.
However, at the end of the day, that's probably the reason why this move was made. He needs to play.
As Tallon said, if Clemmensen is healthy from Opening Night, Markstrom never makes the team anyway.
They'll probably try to trade Clemmensen and there will probably be no takers, and they'll just stay with Theo-Clemmer as originally planned.
It's not the greatest of goalie tandems, but it's a tandem that can win games. They've both proven that in their respective careers.
