Clemmensen isn't losing games for the Panthers, IMO. The defense needs to get better and the 5 on 5 play has been awful. I just don't see how Markstrom instantly makes everyone else on the team better. He hasn't done it in the AHL, why would he do it in up there?*
*Not saying he isn't a stud, he is. But even with his (and DGM's) outstanding play, the Rampage still sit in 13th place in the West.
Maybe the Panthers have more talent than the Rampage/the Rampage would be the worst team in the AHL without the goaltending.
