anyone troubled by his off start to the year? top that with Morris career season thus far, does that make you worry about markstrom being fully prepped for nhl time next season? I own him and am uneasy with how he hasnt quite rebounded, i know he had a decent game last week i think, but then he lost to the marlies on 30/34 shooting.. not sure the exact sv% but it cant be that great at all.
on a side note i'm actually dealing markstrom atm, but its a trade that has been close to being done for months, we have even agreed to terms before and just no one posted it. However i revived the talks the other day due to this poor start. Given how unpredictable goalies can be at a young age, look at how amazing mason was years ago AT the nhl level, or how highly hyped pavelec's upside is and he's still yet to show it, or even bernier's pedigree and still no starting job years after being a lock for certain to be a stud. Sure every case has its own unique quirks but i like the value im getting for markstrom and the fact he's not doing well makes it easier i think to pull the trigger, if he came out hot i think i still would have done the deal eventually, but maybe asked for more coming back. At least im still getting equivalent value, i think i upgraded a pick on my side a bit to get it done, but a small upgrade.
Been trying to look for any insight on the net about markstrom's struggles but havent found anything really. Figured i can't be the only owner wondering what's up with him though.
