I don't think they think Markstrom is ready for the NHL.
They might not think that Markstrom should be here now because of the way the schedule is setup. He's not going to outplay Theodore so there's no point in having him sit on the bench and be a backup (again, only 3 B2B's the rest of the year).
If they felt it was best for Markstrom to be here, they would've saved some money and not signed Clemmensen at all last offseason, to begin with.
