In the season plus I have had the pleasure of watching Markstrom, his physical tools have never been a question. He is huge and he is unfairly quick. He is quicker than most goalies much smaller than him. He goes side to side better than just about anyone in the league.

His issue has been consistency and focus. He will make 3 or 4 highlight reel saves, then let in a shot from the sideboards. He is playing with crazy confidence right now, which if you've ever talked to the kid, he does NOT lack. There are some that don't like his attitude around here, but IMO it's the only attitude a #1 goalie should have.

Love his game, love his cockiness. This kid is the real deal.


In other news, the Rampage have signed NHL vet Jon Sim to a PTO. He will be joining the team on Friday and is expected to play Saturday night vs. OKC.
