Wasn't he a top goalie prospect and touted as the next great goalie? How times have changed.

The problem is, he's not an NHL level back up at this point in time. He needs to play on an everyday basis to figure his game out.

Having him play a couple times every two weeks is bad for him and bad for the team. He won't develop, and the team will have some of the worst backup goaltending around.

Still though, I don't think New Jersey or Winnipeg are making the playoffs, even the Leafs (but they have a chance), so it wouldn't hurt to give the guy a year as a backup. Buffalo would probably do it as well.

As I understand it, even if he clears waivers on the way down, Vancouver would either risk not calling him back up all year (unlikely) or risk losing him and retaining half-salary on call-up waivers ?

He's still fairly young with a lot of potential at one point. And his NHL experience has been on a bottom-feeder team.
Surely, someone would take a chance on him even at $1.2 million.
Although I find waiver claims the hardest to predict. To many factors to consider.

Re-entry waivers are gone under the latest CBA. "The Wade Redden" rule

Leafs and Jets clearly have backups already (Reimer and Hutchinson). I agree the Devils maybe would have an interest, though I think they'd like Lack as an insurance policy against Schneider leaving a lot more.

Montreal might have the same dilemma with Tokarski, if they don't/can't trade either him or Budaj. I'm not bringing it up to hijack the thread, but wondering if the fate of one might affect the other. Tokarski grabbed some headlines in the playoffs last year, if there's a team out there picking up a goalie off the waiver wire, maybe going for him would help Markstrom slip through waivers for VAN. Or, conversely, maybe a team grabbing Markstrom would let Tokarski slip through. It'll be interesting to see what happens.

Reimer requested a trade.

To start, both New Jersey and Winnipeg are trying to make the playoffs. If you were the GM of either team you'd apparently have a different strategy, but in the world we're actually living in, it doesn't seem likely either of those teams would bite.

Dealing with the situations individually, in the case of the Jets, Hutchinson is the same age and is a much better goaltender at the moment. Markstrom's ceiling may be higher but stuck on an NHL roster there is literally no way Markstrom is going to figure things out.

In the case of the Devils, presumably they see Schneider as their long term starter and are apparently close to signing him to a long term extension. So if Schneider's their long term starter what point is there in sacrificing wins using Markstrom as back up if all Markstrom will ever be to them is a back up?

There's not much doubt in my mind that were they both on waivers at the same time Tokarski would be the one getting claimed. There is solid evidence that Tokarski may very well be able to handle an NHL backup job. Markstrom can't.

Arizona would pick him up in a heartbeat, I would think. 9000000 times better than Dubnyk.

Very unlikely he gets picked up given his injuries and poor play in NHL

As far as trade value. Probably none

Nah, they're not going to carry 3 goalies on 1-way contracts on the roster. And what would they do with Dubnyk?

At this point Markstrom needs to be in the AHL getting 50 starts.

Calgary will roll Hiller/Ramo next season but even still I could see them claiming Markstrom if only to mess with Vancouver.

Well in that case i would love to see CBJ pick him up. An AHL tandem of Dansk&Markstrom would be so much fun.

If you claim him off waivers, he goes onto your NHL roster. You'd have to waive him again to get him down, and Vancouver or another team could just claim him back.

Yes, I realize that. No harm in trying.
And to be completely honest, he might be a better option than Mcelhinney.

I could see Florida Pick him back, but I don't see Markstrom turning out, any chance he had of turning into what he was hyped to be was ruined by injures
