I would carry him to the airport, if necessary.
Markstrom is the absolute real deal. If we had Markstrom and an amnesty clause came, I would easily toss Bryz and ride with Markstrom as our number 1 next season.... not even a question. This kid is the closest thing you'll find to a Pekka Rinne at an earlier development stage.
I was actually surprised that Florida didn't go with Markstrom last season.
And you know which team had a chance to select Markstrom at #28 in the first round in 2008 but instead dealt the pick away to the Capitals for Steve ****ing Eminger? (Yes, I know I made a post like this earlier about trading for Eminger instead of drafting John Carlson... I reserve the right to continue my unhealthily ranting and raving about easily the worst, most foolish and ill-advised trade in recent Flyers history.)
