    Default rinne and the preds?

    so, are the wins going to come or what? these shootout losses are absolutely killing me! the 3 losses in the shootout are worthless to me (2pts for a win and that's it) and the lone victory netted me nothing- thanks chris mason!

    i know it's only the first week, but i am a little behind with injuries and late contracts and i don't want to slip even further.

    is linback a safer bet next week (weekly rosters every monday) or do you roll with rinne again next week? i'm pretty sure i keep rolling with rinne, but wanted other opinions.

    thanks

    Not sure of the schedule for next week, but I would conitnue to roll with Rinne, which speaks to how good he is and why he should be between the pipes for your team.

    They're bound to get better, I think. Give him at least another week!

    Rinne is killing myself as well. I took a look at his stats from last year, and he does go through bouts, where he loses as many as 7 consecutive starts. On the flip side, he's also capeable of winning 10 in a row.

    he's not playing badly though, they just aren't getting the wins yet unfortunately...in the league I own him fortunately we count shootout losses too so at least I'm getting some value from him despite the losses
    Thats me on the street with a violin under my chin, playing with a grin, singing gibberish.

    thanks for the input, just wanted confirmation of my own thoughts here. on the flipside, it can't get any worse and the preds don't have any back-to-back games this week so rinne should get all three starts (hopefully)

    I see the general consensis is to stay with him, even though the Preds aren't scoring for him. I still have a chance to get Halak with a much better team in front of him.

    Would you still ride it out with Rinne or make the deal for
    Halak?

    I think Rinne is an elite goalie playing for a team who cant score. Now, having said that, a few goalies share this same situation.

    The way i see it is you have to decide are the preds a playoff team? If so, then dont do the trade.

    Personally, i share the view the preds arent a playoff team, and ironically enough, i traded rinne and low picks for halak and a couple of 2nds before the season started.

    It might bite me in the ass, but then again i have 3 wins and 2SO compared to squat from rinne. Rinne will bridge the gap, however, i jus dont see the preds making the playoffs, or scoring many goals. Losing so many shootouts is a classic example of not enough skill guys. Think of the leafs....if it went to a shootout, they were usually toast.

    You cant go wrong with either scenario. Rinne is Rinne. The wins will come. The answer is: how many?

    I play in a pretty pedestrian, non head-to-head league. We only count wins and SO. As a result, Rinne isn't quite as valuable in my league as in most.

    That said, he's riding my bench behind Schneider until the Preds get on a roll. This is ridiculous.

    I can totally see trading for Halak. Much better team, seemingly better defensive system. The only thing you have to worry about is Elliott. If you're in a league like mine I could see swapping Rinne for Halak. But if you're in a league where you start multiple goalies, especially in head-to-head leagues, Rinne is still your guy.

    i agree with you in regards to a h2h w multiple goalies. rinne is an absolute beast in that set-up, where if he loses 2-1 but saves 35/36 for ex, thats gold.
