    Default Niemi for Lehtonen or Rinne?

    Ok... I know it's early still... and there is still some time for things to turn around...

    but I have been eyeing Niemi on our WW for the last few days... and am thinking of dropping one of my G for him. (see sig for team and categories)

    I have been reading other posts and have felt the same regarding Rinne. NSH has a terrible team in front of him and I can't see him getting back into form in a shortened season.

    Lehtonen has at least been playing well....

    They both got lit up the last couple games.

    I am wanting to hold onto Anderson since he gives me an Eastern G. Crawford has been solid for me... so he's not on my short list.

    Should I consider Anderson over Rinne?

    Should I try and sell Rinne off for a better forward and then grab Niemi?

    Since our G carry a lot of stats... I'm just not sure if I should stand pat or make that move!

    Goalies have close-to zero-trade-value in a 5-team league starting only 2G.
    If you can get any upgrade on your forwards by trading a goalie, do it.

    Niemi should be owned in all leagues... even 5-team leagues.

    Thanks Pengwin7!

    I'm currently trying to package one of my G with a Forward to maybe pull off a larger upgrade in F, then grab Niemi
