coolboarder Posted January 15, 2016 Share Posted January 15, 2016 I think that Miller should be given easy starts against bottom-dweller teams while giving Markstrom 2-1 ratio start for the rest of the season if they plan to make the playoffs. If the management wants to tank, then start Miller on a 2-1 ratio over Markstrom and trade Miller in the off-season and hope that Miller has a better second half of the season for his value to go up. I was a supporter of the Miller's signing to act as a stop-gap since we did not know what we have in Lack and Markstrom. Lack faltered out in the playoffs against the Flames so it was a good idea to trade away Lack and looking back, it's still a right move. We can always trade Miller and retain some salary if we need to trade away Miller for some returns. We can always sign a free agent goalie and we have a goalie in the farm system that can be a serviceable back-up to Markstrom for next season and wait until Demko to be ready. The fact that Miller allowed bad goals is concerning, even a 2nd goal distraction by a non-call yesterday. If Markstrom was in net, I doubt that he would have allowed that goal.
