The RFA situation is not a concern for anyone who is being reasonable. Tallon will sign him.
And it's not about babying him. Issue number one is money which we've gone over. I don't think anyone would argue otherwise. But another issue is that we didn't have a proper training camp where Markstrom could have earned/stolen/proven the job should go to him and Tallon could make arrangements to move Clemmer/theo. He also was coming back from a knee injury so he was likely spending time in the AHL anyway. anyone who knows how you develop players knows his time down there has been nothing but a good experience for fine tuning his game. For once we've started developing prospects the way you're supposed to. He's really only NHL ready very recently, not 2/3 years. Nobody is babying him.
