yeah I've heard this argument before, it was a point of debate in the "Markstrom to AHL another year" thread, and I don't see the point of this excuse....both Clemmer and Theodore were injured last season, also, how does being in different leagues "prevent" injuries? It's not like he would not get injured in the AHL as opposed to the NHL or vice versa



SEL says hi
Markstrom isn't ready for the NHL based on his play last season. Goalies take some time. A backup role wont help his development as much as a full time role in the A will. We need to be patient with him and develop him properly. He'll have a long career at the NHL level. He isn't going to the SEL. What's the point of putting in time in the A? He likes it in San Antonio based on his tweets.
