It's obvious we are not going to blow opponents out, more like we'll get blown out.
But right now our goaltending has been suspect AT BEST this season. Theo is one hell of an enigma right now. But if he's not doing well, and neither is Clem, why not call up Markstrom? Wouldn't having Markstrom playing well and the team winning, then us having to figure out what to do with 3 goalies be nothing but a GOOD problem?
Theo and Clem are not delivering. We win games 2-1 and 3-2 not 5-1. We need solid goaltending so why the hell not try Marky out again? He's been out of the NHL for basically a year, let's see how he's improved. Hell maybe he'll never be sent down again.
You all are so keen on keeping Shore up here because he's been so great here but you won't give Markstrom a shot? A guy who honestly has done a lot more at the AHL level than Shore has. (33 pts in 50 AHL games is nothing to brag about).
So I ask all you naysayers, WHY NOT?!
