    Default Pekka Rinne

    Compared to many of your leagues, goalies in my league aren't that valuable. There are only 10 teams, and we only start one net minder. Their points (4 for win, 8 for SO) are weighted relative to goals and assists, but we don't take GAA, SVs, SV%, etc. in to account. As a result, I wonder if some goalies are less dominant as they are in other leagues.

    I currently have Rinne and Schneider as my tenders. I question whether Rinne's wins and SOs will regress this season due to the loss of a defender like Suter. With Schneider, I could see Luongo sticking around and making a bigger impact than most predict.

    There are a plethora of solid goalies available, and I'm wondering if, strictly in terms of wins and SOs, any of these goalies could be an improvement over either Schneider or Rinne. All thoughts are appreciated:

    Backstrom
    Varlamov
    Elliott
    Lindback
    Pavelec
    Theodore
    Hiller
    Brodeur
    Anderson

    Now, to be honest, the only ones that I think are possibilities are Backstrom, Elliott, and Lindback. What do you think?

    Keep what you got. Rinne is Top 3 goalie. And it's only been one game for Schneider.

    Actually, you could argue that even more are possibilities (e.g. Hiller, Varlamov, Anderson) but considering how many are available and in a 10 team, start 1 league, there's no hurry to make a move. Rinne should remain regardless, and I would only drop Schneider if you know that Vancouver will continue with the tandem all season.

    never chase shutouts they are not reliable

    better goalies tend to get them but they are not a guarantee

    and after 1 game is a bit early to worry about them
