Did Jacob Markstrom steal the starting job last night?

Markstrom was sensational last night, and there's no other way to put it. 18 stops in the third period, many of them on the power play on cold blooded snipers like Grabner and Tavares. I've always been a huge fan of the kid, but agreed with the masses for the most part that he needed more time in the AHL. I think we're all wrong. Markstrom is the prototype for the new wave of goaltenders in the NHL and he's ready. There's no reason to hold him back. I believe he did more than enough to justify a start in Montreal on Monday.

Did he steal the starting job, no. But he did show us that he may be closer to being ready than we thought. Still I think once Clemmer is ready, Markstrom should go back to the AHL and be a starter over there to at least have a full year of starting in NA under his belt.

It's interesting to see what's happening, Clemmensen is almost ready for return?

If Markstrom gets good playing time while Clemmensen is out and proves himself, I could see us maybe trading Clemmensen to a goalie desperate team around the deadline. He's in the last year of his contract right?

It depends what happened with Theodore. It didn't appear that serious though. I still think he should be sent down once Clemmer returns. He's played great, but I don't want us to rush him. It's one thing to play a couple great games in the NHL, it's another to play a whole season that way. I don't think it would kill him to play in San Antonio for a year. At least he got his taste, and the Panthers know more what they have in him now.

I'm only saying this:

Markstrom is the best Swedish goalie talent since Lundqvist, he may become better. I rank him ahead of Lehner and Lack, two other great Swedish talents.

Markstrom was a beast last night, he definitely deserves the start next game. Thats for sure. If thats the level of play we can expect from him, we're set.

He is. When my friend, bro and I were down for the home opener, we were on the glass for practice and saw him, they were like like holy ****, this kid is big. He is one big goalie.

I know 4 periods isn't much to judge a player on but he has looked more than capable of playing NHL hockey. Hoping he gets another start soon before Clemmensen is back.

I know people are saying that getting a year of AHL hockey would be good for him but would 30-40 NHL games be better?

Wow I just realized this kid is 6'6 tall! I mean I knew he was pretty big when we drafted him (about 6'3 IIRC) but boy has he grown even bigger!

This guy is even bigger than Rinne and still moves so fast. And don't even think of getting a shot past him down low when he get's his pads down. Just like he did against the Islanders.

I'm really, really impressed by him so far.

No he's not 6'6, he's my size, 6'4 at max. Still a huge kid.

Any word on how far Clem is from returning?

Well he is a little bit taller than Guds, and Guds is listed at 6-4. Who cares though, he covers the net unlike any goalie we have had.

The thing I found interesting last night is that when he is being screened it seemed that he looked over the screen rather than around it

I noticed it too!

He was always peeking over the man in front of him. Never under or through the screen.

My money is on him starting in Montreal. I'd be surprised if they start Theo because they seem to be cautious with players and minor injuries. If Markstrom wants to steal the starting job, playing a game in Montreal will be a good test.

He looked really good to me in preseason and so far in his four periods he's been very good but that's not enough playing time to steal the starting job. He does have an opportunity to do that starting in Montreal.

Why why Theo pulled? Was he playing poorly? Did he allow softies?

apparently he had some cramps and some "core" things that were bothering him so Dineen said he just wanted to be cautious with him and put Markstrom in considering theo wasnt facing many shots anyway, boy did that change in the third though

Yeah Theo was having cramps apparently. Nothing major, but I think Markstrom might get the start in Montreal anyway. The Habs are struggling right now and it would be a good game to really help Markstrom improve his confidence even more so. That's important for a young goalie like him.

He might be 6'5", he has said he is 6'5" in the past. I think at the least he is a few tenths of an inch taller than 6'4".

I think he's at least 6'5. Rinne is 6'5 and when you watch them and compare, you can tell that Markström is at least not smaller than Rinne. He's closer to 6'6 than 6'4 IMO for sure.

Seeing him live in a game when he is in net is where you realise how large he is and how much he covers that entire goal. His pads are practically at the cross bar when he is standing.

Clemmer coming back does not necessarily mean that Markie is sent down.
