This franchise traded Booth 5 games into a season so please dont tell me this franchise doesnt make rash decisions.

The basis for that decision was "accountability".

Markstrom was finally brought up after the team posted 30th of 30 goaltending average. The reason was making the goaltenders accountable.

Markstrom comes up and it is clear and uncontroverted Markstrom is the best of the three goalies. Markstrom can work on "the little things" up here with Tallas, not on a bus touring Texas.

A franchise has a responsibility to put the best product on the ice. Sending down the best of the three goalies is contrary to that.

If the team tanks, the franchise will be "feeling it" in a lot more ways with all the renewals. Those concert tickets wont seduce anyone.
