I feel like letting Markstrom go was not the right move.
While for this season, I agree but it would never had worked "long term" unless willing to give up/expose Demko in the expansion draft. I can see why the Canucks did what they did... the term for Marky was never gonna work.

Things changed I think when Demko got in the heads of Vegas a couple of months back :)

Fair but at this point which would you rather have? Demko has not been the same since last years playoffs, and I feel like maybe they jumped the gun on him and how ready he was. Many a goalie have had stellar showings when forced into a starting position, but come next season were not the same. I want him to be great, I really do, but so far not seeing it.
I will give him that the team playing in front is not the same and not doing him any favours.

Irks me we got a taste of it last year only to see Marky ,Toffoli, Tanev and Stecher walk while we are spoiled with the cap hits of Beagle, Sutter, Roussel on a nightly basis. Looks like we're a few years out again
Yes to this. Exact same here. No trades, run out the season, fire the GM, give new guy the keys and open budget with less dead weight on salary cap.

Letting Marky go had to happen. Term and dollars would have been an anchor. Let Demko work this out this year, he and team will be better for it.

Oh I know it had to happen, but I’m allowed to not like it aren't I?
Was just nice having a goalie you could trust back there instead of wondering who was gonna start the next game all the time
