What else were you looking for him to prove?
Five games is not a very large sample (one of those five was a single period). Your assertion that he was our #1 was also quite wrong. Theodore has gotten most of the starts thus far, and if he hadn't left the Islanders game, Markstrom's games played would drop to four.

I'm not saying I want Markstrom to stay in the AHL permanently, I'm just saying that given the current goalie situation, it's not a bad idea to have him start every game in the AHL, as opposed to splitting time in the NHL while Clemmensen's trade value drops even more as he sits and rots.
