    Default Start Fleury or Varlamov?

    Weekly starts. Colorado only plays two games this week, but how many of Pittsburgh's 4 will Fleury play?

    Scoring is (0.6*GP)+(0.2*SV)-(1*GA)
    12 Team Keeper, Start 9F, 4D, 1G
    F- Spezza, Kane, Kessel, Ladd, Gaborik, Moulson, MKoivu, Brown, Galchenyuk, Grabovski, Weiss, Conacher, Schwartz
    D- Yandle, Carlson, Franson, Hamonic, Giordano, Hamhuis
    G- Fleury, Holtby, Luongo
    Farm: Toffoli, Rattie, Nyqvist, Monahan, Wennberg, R Murphy, Ceci, Trouba, Gormley, Frk, Petan, Shinkaruk

    Good question. Based on Vokuon's latest preformance against the Caps, I saw Fluery will start at least 2 of them. I'm going with more a 3 out of 4 guess though. Depending on how well he does. The Pens look like they have a pretty moderate schedule. I'm almost leaning towards The Flower. But I love Varly also. Difficult.

    I have to believe that Fleury will play at least 2 of the contests and possibly 3 since Vokoun started the last game. I can see Fleury playing on Tuesday, Thursday and then probably Sunday with Vokoun starting on Saturday (but worst case he gets 2 starts).

    I would lean toward starting MAF.

    Even if Fleury was only scheduled to start one game this week compared to Varly, I would probably still go with Fleury. I like his chances of winning that one game compared to Varly and the Avs.

    I'd go with Fleury as well, even though I'd bet he'll only get two starts (every other).

    I'm leaning towards Fleury. But with our scoring (wins not included) it doesn't really matter if the Aves lose, just that he starts, and doesn't get shelled.

    I'd go with Varlamov; Colorado is awesome at home and their top line is just beginning to take off.
