    Default Pick up Lindback?

    Varlamov and Ward have been stinking for me so far. It's still early in the season but since Subban is back, Wis is expendable for me. Should I drop Wis for a goalie or a skater? We start 2 goalies.

    Goalies available:
    Lindback
    Neuvirth
    Backstrom
    Harding
    Bobrovsky
    Dubnyk


    Thanks

    If Wis is expendable then why not make a move? I mean, goaltending is super important in most leagues. Lindback should be the target out of that list.

    Yeah, I think Lindback would be a great pick up for you.

    While I don't like the idea of dropping Wiz for nothing, I think Lindback would be far more valuable to your team so I would probably make this move as some insurance for now. Perhaps you can move Ward or Varly after they pick up their play.
    Without me, it's only "aweso".

    In "weekly" leagues, you should be checking schedules.

    The DobberEntry league is weekly and I roll with Bryz/Varly.
    Lindback is good for wins, but I'm not certain I'd start him over either Varlamov or Ward. Depends on schedule.

    I believe CBJ has a 4-game week followed by perhaps a 2-game week.
    You may want to look into that before dropping Wiz.

    You may also find that you like the COL or CAR schedules better than what TB has in upcoming weeks. I don't know.

    Weekly leagues are about really evaluating a week-of-schedule.
    Do that first. Then decide.

    I think the Backstrom, Harding combo would be good too but that would require me to drop Wis and either Ward or Varly and I'm not sure if that is worth it...

    I only get 2 pick ups every week so can't waste too many pick ups.

    May just stay put or see how Lindback performs.

    I don't think it is worth dropping one of your starters for a platoon goalie. Lindback is still looking strong, I say go with the original plan and drop Wiz for him

    I own Lindback in 3 of my 4 leagues (all roto though). Tampa's defence still gives me the willies, but Lindback is ldefinitely ooking good for W, Saves, and SA. If his other peripherals (GAA and SV%) continue to improve (as they have over the last couple of games) my worry would be that he won't be availbale much longer.

    If Wis is expendable then I would grab Lindback.
