I'm not convinced that being sent to AHL is best for Marky's confidence and development at this point. I don't see that playing lots of games in AHL is bettter than half or third that number in NHL. Especially since the big club offers a goalie coach as a full time benefit. And especially since having a competitive situation made both Marky and Jose play better, which helped the team.

Unless DT trades Clemmer after a couple of games, I call major fail on this.

Oh and a goalie is a position unlike any other, can't compare this to Booth. It should be about more than money in this particular case.
Agree on all parts.
