Jacob “Milk Carton” Markstrom

Saw this in the super market today. Maybe we can help the Canucks and Torts finds this guy. We did trade a future Hall-of-Famer for him.

At this point, the Canucks are setting this guy up for a huge let down. This kid is a super prospect who may actually be higher than Eddie Lack on the Swedish goalie pecking order.

I somewhat understand Torts’ belief that we have to ride Eddie if we want to make the playoffs but that dream realistically died 2 months ago. I also understand Torts’ wants to see if Lack can handle the load of a Number 1. I think it’s safe to say he’s done that. Ultimately, it’ll be someone other than Torts who makes the call come next October as I suspect he’ll be fired at the end of this season.

It’s now time to see what kind of ROI the Canucks received for their former franchise goalie.¬†On the other hand with the way the Canucks have been playing, putting him in now may warrant a visit from Amnesty International.
