Just took a look at goalies ages and found this ( it is last season ) I'd say Markstrom has more than a few years left

 

2019‑2020 NHL Goalie Stats (quanthockey.com)

Markstrom’s career arc is very similar to Devan Dubnyk. Same size. Highly touted 1st rounder, took years to develop, finally found his way under a new goalie coach (Burke). Had a few years where he was considered an all-star, and was a finalist for the Vezina.

 

Then, very suddenly, his game fell off a cliff. It was his age 33 season. Markstrom is obviously a different player, but if he has the same career arc, his contract will be a problem in year 3. He’s having more injury troubles than Dubnyk, so it may even happen sooner.

Another strong game for Demko in a loss. His game seems to be improving a bit, but frustratingly, now we can't seem to support him often enough.

Yeah, I've been fairly impressed with Demmer to this point.

Obviously his record is poor, and he hasn't been good to the point of stealing wins, but he does look very calm and poised in net.

That's about as good as we can hope for with this roster.

Quick look at the stats says:

Jan 25 he faced 36 shots saving 35 for a 0.972 avg in a 7-1 win. Canucks outshot by 1,  with 6 more hits than Ott.

Jan 27 he faced 43 shots saving 42 for a 0.976 avg in a 5-1 win. Canucks outshot by 7 out hit by 9

 

Jan 27, is a steal in my book

Jan 25, he played very well, but not a steal.

What a beauty Demko is, and his preference for March career-first shutouts :lol: (I know the 2020 SC run one is a different month). 

 

He has a March first career pro shutout for the Comets, and a March first career regular season shutout for the Canucks. Go Thatcher Go! :towel:

Demko is quietly putting together a really nice first season as a starter.  2.92 GAA .911% for the year after a really ugly start.  29 games left, I hope we ride him pretty hard and that he gets 22 of them.

We truly have an elite player in every position with this young core... now just need the right supporting cast (ie. bottom 6)

thats on the way too. Expansion and covid cap might make some good options available to us, along with guys like Lind continuing to develop.

What happened to Marky??

Has played 17 games out of the 26 the team has played.  Was injured for a few games as well.

Imo he played too much and got tired, then injured, now trying to get back to game speed.

Maybe he misses vancouver more than vancouver misses him?

He'd be a better back up that Holtby, if they played at the same price, at least so far.
