But he does a funny dance when he wins a game.

 

I hear Noodles a lot on the radio out here and he is always talking about how many NHL goalies are backups in terms of talent and that even if they have a standout year as a backup and get promoted to starter by another team, most fail because they lack the ability between the ears to be a starter. It's a completely different mentality when you play once a week or less then get shoved into playing 70 games. He often uses Scott Darling as an example. Great backup, terrible starter because he's a backup with a backup mentality.

Although Markstrom has made some strides, that is a concern I have had with both Canuck goalies.   It is a very real syndrome with goalies and some just are not wired to be starters.

Yes. We have been blessed here in Vancouver with a string of elite goalies. Here's hoping Demko is the next one. That said, Markstrom has been fine as a stop gap.
