If Markstrom for whatever reason doesn't make it then they have their man, if he does then they will have one heck of a bargaining chip in JB.
Which seems to me all the more reason for them to go out and get an established vet to fill in for a year while Markstrom gets his feet wet, instead of giving up significant assets for a player that may only be usable for a year or two and then replaced. Having two basically rookie goaltenders fighting, no matter how good they are, just seems like a recipe for disaster. Plus as you said Florida needs a lot more things on top of a goaltender. Better to give up those assets on other positions instead of another top young goaltender.
