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.
To me, that's more of a reason to keep him here. The only logical explanation for sending him down is that we're trying to trade a goalie, probably Theo. If a Theo deal isn't done before the deadline, there's no reason why we should have sent him back down.
