    Default Hiller or Backstrom

    Hiller and Backstrom was just dropped in my league.

    Hiller is off to a rough start but should bounce back.

    Backstrom seems to be in a timeshare but may start getting more starts since his last outing in relief of Harding (saving 28 of 28).

    Would you rather own either Hiller or Backstrom over any of my goalies? We still have these guys but I don't think they will be worth it:

    Neuvirth
    Bobrovsky
    Dubnyk
    Nabokov

    Thanks

    I like Hiller a bit better than Backstrom. Hiller should see a quite a few more starts than Bacstrom, and in my opinion they both play on fringe playoff teams. I would rank them both over any of the available goalies, and I would even go as far as adding them both to your roster, thus ditching Varlamov.
