Losing Markstrom but making room for Demko would be a fine result from the expansion draft.  

 

Marky could take Clark with him, jo one knows his weaknesses better than Vancouver.  Plus we dont lose a defense man and Marky is not going outlast Demko here.  

I'll bet Clark is chomping at the bit to develop two young, possible star goalies for the next 10 years.

Markstrom is 28, I repeat 28 he's only just entering his prime years. He's playing well in fact outstanding at times.  Most teams would want him. His value at $3.6 is very good …. and yet the grass is always greener on the other side brigade can't wait to move him on … because hey the next guy is going to be better   and the guy after that, DiPietro ( 19, )  is better than Price. Demko may be good … in a couple of years, DiPietro is years away and still a 50-50 gamble. Enjoy what you have and try facts before fiction

Can they have him play as an emergency and send him back to juniors? Not sure of the rules on that?

With DiPietro meeting the team in Washington - the #Canucks will be exercising Article 13.12(m)

Basically - the team will prove that they don't have two healthy goaltenders and since they have no healthy goalies in Utica (signed to NHL contract), they recall DiPietro

So is the iii) part of the clause saying that if he's still on our roster on the 40 days from the end of the season, he has to stay with us?

 

 

 

Also, how does this call up affect Dipietro's ELC slide? If he backs up for 10 games, will his ELC year be burned or does he need to actually minutes played between the pipes in a game for that game to be one of the ten?

He has to actually play 10 games to burn the first year.

Price made his debut at 20, Quick at 21.  Both stuck and developed into NHL elite.  If there's one position in hockey where skills and character can override age its at goalie.  Class is always class, while form can be temporary.  I don't get the angst about blooding DePeitro at 19, if that turns out to be necessary.  Showing him some confidence might actually bring him along sooner.  Waiting too long didn't help Schneider any.

 

The NHL rulebook must have been typed by a monkey, just back from a pub.  If its ok to 'loan' Gagner to the Leafs organization, why then can't they payback that debt by loaning us a goalie now we need one?

We need someone at the NHL level. If this was about the AHL, I'm sure they could loan us a goalie.

Leafs apparently also put in a waiver claim on McKenna but the Flyers were lower in the standings so he went to Philadelphia.

Canucks’ Thatcher Demko out 10 days with ‘slight sprain’ Josh Beneteau

February 7, 2019, 1:47 PM

 

The Vancouver Canucks will be without goalie Thatcher Demko while he recovers from what head coach Travis Green is calling a “slight sprain.”

 

Vancouver Canucks ✔@Canucks Demko has a “slight sprain” and is out approximately 10 days, said Coach Green. No update on Baertschi. 89 10:20 AM - Feb 7, 2019 Twitter

 

This puts the the Canucks in a tough spot, as OHL goaltender Michael DiPietro remains with the club on an emergency basis and both of their AHL goaltenders, Ivan Kulbakov and Michael Leighton, are not signed to NHL contracts. Demko suffered the injury in warmup before Monday’s win over the Philadelphia Flyers. Jacob Markstrom is expected to make his sixth straight start against the Chicago Blackhawks on Thursday. Unless the team makes another move, the 19-year-old DiPietro can remain with the Canucks for as long as the “emergency” that prompted his recall is in effect. While it’s unlikely he’ll get into a game without an injury to Markstrom, DiPietro says he’s still enjoying the experience.

 

“It’s definitely a cool opportunity, stepping on the ice and soaking it all in and just being around the guys,” he said Wednesday. “I’m just going to take it for the experience and what it is and just kind of soak it all in.”

They clearly see this kid as a legit future NHL goaltender.  It's exciting to have two young up and coming goalies in the system.
