We're not asking him to come in and save the season, more just getting him adjusted to the role he's positioned for next year which will be back-up.
Having talked to Markstrom several times over the past two years, both as a fan and as a credentialed media member, one thing Markstrom doesn't lack is confidence. He understands his role in the organization, and when he's called upon, he will be fine mentally.
His confidence is borderline off-putting. Not for me personally, as it's a persoanlity trait I hope for in a goalie, but to some, he has an air of semi-cockiness.
