Im not an expert on the business and politics of the NHL, my point is just that having two young potential all star goalies would be the best case scenario. But if the business/contract realities prevent it, then so be it.
Markstrom will be fine. If he was playing on L.A. or Ottawa right now, he'd have far better numbers. He looks good right now, he is learning and has taken some lumps but he seems to be progressing. If by this time next season he doesn't look like he's our goalie of the future, that's when you get ready to make some sort of move. There's no point in paying a high price for a young goalie right now when we already have one of the most highly regarded young goalies in hockey.
