    Default Should I add another Backup?

    Okay in a Large league I am in I have one top Goalie then its goalie by committee.
    I have the space - do you think, considering the condensed season, its worth my adding another backup? Pickings are slim

    My Goalies: Schneider, Harding & Khabby

    FA available: Chris Mason, Matthew Garon, Leighton, dipietro,

    None of those guys are starters and they will probably play less than your current goalies. You're not going to win your goalie cats with that group so I would just use your remaining roster spots and pick up the best available forwards to overload your offense (especially if it's a daily start league). In this case forget about goaltending and put together the best offence you can find and win your weeks that way. The only one of those goalies I might consider would be Leighton, and that's gambling that Bryz gets cut next year due to salary concerns.

    How many goalies start per night? Daily lineups? Scoring? etc etc.

    YES - Garon

    Okay, he's not sexy. Lindback is unproven. A tough spell for the rookie (or near rookie) and a stretch of reasonable play by Garon (reasonable - not all world) and he can easily have more than 1/2 the games for TB once again. In fact, if Tampa is smart, they'll be delighted with a rotation, in developing Lindback for the future.

    I would jump on Garon. Every one seems to thing Lindback has the starting job on lockdown, and while I think Lindback will start with it. Lindback is not the same type of work horse that a lot of #1 goalies are, Garon is going to see a good amount of action, and has the ability to dethrone Lindback as the number one guy mid way through the season.

    I picked up Leighton but now notice Dan Ellis is a FA.

    Perhaps a better option?
