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.
My apologies. i wrote GAA and i meant save percentage. Theodore is last in the NHL in save percentage of all goalies where Markstrom is 5th. If you go to qualified goalies Markstrom moves to 4th and Theodore to about 23rd.
