Panthers Coach Doesnt Exactly Praise Markstrom
In an ideal world, the Florida Panthers would have the present (Tim Thomas) and future (Jacob Markstrom) covered in net. In reality, Thomas is injured and Markstroms playing like a guy who isnt ready for the NHL.
When asked by the Miami Herald if he was happy with Markstroms work as of late, Panthers head coach Kevin Dineen wasnt exactly emphatically in his young netminders corner.
Well, Dineen paused for a few seconds. Its always easy to sit there over the last couple of days. I go back to what I said. I have healthy bodies out of the lineup and its easy to always be explaining why and to lean toward the negative. At the end of it, we need a win versus St. Louis and goaltending is a big part of that.
