we can go round and round of the semantics of statistics and other garbage, but unless anyone here can disprove any of these concepts, don't bother responding. you're accomplishing nothing.
Not really. The defense is playing crappy in front of him and he's kept us in a lot of games, solely by standing on his head. Look at the last Flyers game. He was incredible. Has he been perfect? No. But to say he's struggling because he's had a few bad games (and more good games than bad ones) is unfair.
That's not to say I don't support calling up Markstrom. I wholeheartedly do. But Theodore has not been nearly as bad as his defense has been in front of him.
