2. I'm not even confident enough in Markstrom yet. He demonstrated his potential earlier in the year, but he still does some iffy things. The game he had against TB was horrendous.
We're going to miss Theodore, imo. Not only has he been good, but he's been very consistent.
Without Theodore, we're more prone to slumps. This is horrible timing too. Not that any time is good for injury, but the Capitals are starting to play better and they're getting Mike Green back tonight.
Don't get me wrong. I love Markstrom. He's our future, and when he's good he's amazing. He's prone to rookie mistakes though. If Clem does start against NYR, I see Marky taking over for the 2nd and 3rd period. At any rate with Marky splitting time with Clem it'll be a rocky two weeks.
