I assume the management wanted to shake up the team. If Markstrom had won us the game against Boston and Pittsburgh, we could have made a push for a playoff spot and keep the hopes alive. However, since the team got two loss and are out of it, there's no reason to keep him here.

I think it was a move worth trying, a bit late in my opinion, but nonetheless, not a screw up. Also, Markstrom is such a confident goalie, that a shaky start wouldn't have made a dent.
