Well obviously you have fallen head over heels in love with Mr Demko.SKYO wrote: ↑Fri Sep 11, 2020 1:08 pmIt's because you look at the contenders and the losers and the teams that shine have clutch goaltending and Demko (24yrs) has proven that he has that ability in his very young NHL career, dude has ice in his veins... while Marky has looked shaky a bit in his playoff premiere at 30yrs of age with 3 AHL years and over 8 years of NHL experience while expecting around $6M AAV as a UFA allegedly.2Fingers wrote: ↑Fri Sep 11, 2020 10:04 amIf it was only 1 season I would agree but it is 2 seasons so what SL is the best of all options. He also said we could get back a 2nd and I agree, Demko has really raised his value so why not move him now?Tciso wrote: ↑Fri Sep 11, 2020 7:57 amI gotta agree with SKYO. We have a few bad contracts, and a few good UFA's. Benning will be undoing a lot of great drafting if he starts unloading prospects or picks to get rid of any of our bad contracts. Pickup a back-up. Ride out a tough season (aren't they all tough?), and keep going.
Marko is a proven #1 workhorse who can win under pressure (when not struggling with a groin injury).
Demko is a guy who has not proven he can handle a #1's workload.
Three fantastic games in four days in September doesn't change that fact.
(you silly smitten fool you)
Loui + Sven + Thatcher for the 32nd overall pick in the 2020 NHL entry draft.
