Jose Theodore Has Torn Groin
Jose Theodores departure from last nights game against Carolina may have come with a stiff price to pay.
Renaud Lavoie from RDS reports Theodore has a torn groin muscle and its undecided whether or not hell need surgery to repair it. One way or another his season is in doubt because of the injury and prospect Jacob Markstrom has been called up from AHL San Antonio to take his spot.
With Markstrom and backup Scott Clemmensen now having to hold down the fort, this could fire up the Roberto Luongo-to-Florida rumors once again. The problem there is Florida likes the potential Markstrom has to be their No. 1 goalie in the future and GM Dale Tallon doesnt feel pressure to make a deal, especially if it means giving up prized prospects, for the Vancouver star.
If Markstrom struggles and the burden to keep the Panthers playoff hopes alive falls to Clemmensen, dont be surprised if Tallon starts calling British Columbia.
Markstrom makes the Panthers crease a crowded one.
