Crazy to start Theodore tonight (21/02)
I know he's been pretty bad this year, I know that the Flyers scored 13 goals in the last 2 games, but am I crazy to start him tonight @PHI?
But before you tell me that I'm really crazy, here's a little bit of background info. Before the draft, my keepers were Schneider and Luongo and there's been a goalie rush right off the bat and was left with Theodore as the only remaining starter and I've been rotating my 4th goalie spot (we can only have 4 goalies on our roster since there's 14 teams in the league) since day 1 (right now it's MacDonald).
And to give you an idea of how hard it is to get a good goalie, here's who's left in the FA pool (ordered by FH pts they gave so far):
Montoya (on IR)
Irving (in the minor)
Johnson (in the minor)
Mrazek (in the minor)
Danis (in the minor)
Leighton (on IR)
With 61 games remaining (we're using max. games) for my goalies and assuming I get all the VCR games, I still have to play another goalie for 28 games, so I'm kind of forced to play him most of the time. Sure I can pick up the matchups, but I need to make sure I can still play someone else (and believe me, I'm trying as I'm gambling with my 4th goalie spot when a team is on a back-to-back).
We get 3 pts for a W, -0.6 pts for each GA, 0.1 pts for each SV and 2 pts for a SO.
This being said, am I really, really crazy to play him tonight???
