    Default Drop Nabokov for Khudobin?

    I have Rask, Lindback, and Holtby as my other 3 goalies, and wondering if it would be smart to take Khudobin as an insurance policy on Rask, as well as get some better quality stats over the potential quantity that Nabby has (assuming he stays healthy). I've tried floating Nabby's name on the trade wire and no one wants him, but I would guess he would be snatched up off waivers shortly after I drop him.

    Methinks the Boston duo could be gold this year, even if Khudobin only gets 10 games. Thoughts?

    I own Nabokov too, and I think I'd keep him for the time being. It doesn't look like Khudobin will get a lot of starts and I think you should be able to spot start Nabokov effectively enough to get better value.

    I don't see Khudobin getting 20% of the starts (10) this year.

    long term keeper-wise for sure I'd rather own Khudobin, but the way Rask is playing this year I don't see him earning a ton of starts...Nabby on the other hand is the starting goalie in Long Island until proven otherwise
    Thats me on the street with a violin under my chin, playing with a grin, singing gibberish.

    Nabokov holds better value for now. Unless Rask gets hurt, he's the way to go. Even though the Islanders are a weak team, Nabby can go on stretches with some decent numbers. I'd hold him.

    Perfect, thank you all for your advice, I'll be sending rep your way. I'll hang onto Nabokov and keep shopping him around my league. Someone's gotta bite eventually...
