For what it's worth, I would have no problem with calling Markstrom up and giving him a good amount of starts. I would have no problem with that at all.
As I said, I never liked the Clemmensen contract to begin with.
With that said, all I'm saying is that the sample is still small. Our goaltenders are better than their current stats indicate, and there's a business side to the sport, as well. I don't think Clemmensen should be compared to the Santorelli contract, for example. Santorelli has been attrocious for a long time now. He's clearly not an NHL player. Clemmensen, on the other hand, is good enough to be a backup for a lot of teams. I'm not sure it's good business to trade a guy just two starts after he just signed a new contract, sorry. There's a reason Florida has become a more attractive spot for free agents. Tallon, etc. don't treat players that way.
