    Default Elliott or Bobrovsky as a back-up?

    I already have B.Elliott as my 3rd goalie. Does it make sense to throw him back and grab S.Bobrovsky instead? My team is in my signature. Thank you.

    I'm not convinced that being the starter in Columbus is better than being the Backup in St. Louis. I'm not sold on Bobrovsky either.

    st. louis goalies will both regress this year. guaranteed.
    and there is no guarantee that elliot starts teh same % of games as last year.
    i doubt he is even close.

    that said, both of your points are valid and i'm not sure where i stand on the choice. i just wanted to point out that bobrovsky likely starts.

    I agree that Elliott will probably regress but he could drop a lot and still be very good to own. I just don't see Halak as a guy that can be a workhorse so he always needs a good backup behind him.

    Starter over non start coming off the best historical season a goalie has ever put together. Elliot before last year could barely hold a backup job. My bet is he regresses a lot this year. Keep in mind he got a lot of starts last year because of a Halak injury. Get the Bob

    While I do tend to agree about starter vs. back-up (in this case), does it concern anyone that CBJ won't be naming their starter until the end of camp?

    I believe they acquire Bobrovsky to give him a legit shot at the #1 job since Mason wasn't cutting it.

    That being said, I would choose Elliot over him because he has a better team infront of him and he'll get the wins as a 1b starter.

    At this time I'd keep Elliott, too much uncertainty to be risking a guy like Elliott for Bobrovsky.

    agree with the assestment

    one thing i will say though is with fewer starts is it more difficult to get the numbers out of elliot you expect

    not to mention who knows how scheduling conflict work out

    i theory you are absolutely correct in reality it depends on if he can get the actual starts out of them

    Bob will put up good numbers in Columbus. He's been playing fantastic hockey in KHL so he's in game shape. Columbus also has a good D so he won't be left out to dry at the crease.

    I've always liked Elliott too and he'll be great in St.Louis but I'd be going with Bob right now for this year.

    I'd go with Bobrovsky in this case.
