If Markstrom isn't one of our two main goalies next season, then I doubt he'll be in our long term plans. He hasn't had a dream start this season, but I'm confident he'll turn it around soon and have a great season. He won't need more than 3 seasons in the AHL. At that point he becomes a question mark.

He has had hot streaks and cold streaks. If you say he dominated you might be a little too optimistic.
Has he been brilliant every single game? No. But no goalie is. For the most part though, yes he has been dominant. The way he played in the 2nd half of both seasons was absolutely dominant. For pretty much the rest of the time, he was either adjusting to North American hockey, coming back from injuries, or his team was playing like garbage. He hasn't really had any prolonged streaks where he was just bad.
