    Default Who's the better backup?

    Cam ward and dubynk are on the trading block to and the guys looking for a C, where I've got 4 really good ones that I could probably trade one without missing them since I can only start 2 per day plus one in my F/D spot. My starting goalie is leightenen from DAL. Who would be the better backup for me?

    Ward, hands down. Carolina will get more Ws than Edmonton and Ward is an overall better goalie and a proven workhorse.

    Without me, it's only "aweso".

    Definitely Ward for me as well.

    And just so you know, it's spelled Lehtonen.

    My auto correct keeps correcting it to that so I thought why fight it? Sorry if I offended anyone with my bad grammar! Lol

    Dubnyk is the better short term choice right now in my opinion.

    But, Ward, like an above poster said, is a workhorse. He may be kind of streaky at the moment, but Ward has proven himself time and time again to be a solid goalie. He'll post the wins more than Dubnyk will, and he's got a Cup to his name.

    It's Cam Ward all the way my friend.
    Message me about your keeper leagues if you need another player. I'd love to be in a keeper league next season.

    Haha - no worries I don't get offended by it. Just thought I'd let you know.

    By the way, it wouldn't change my answer but it's usually helpful to provide the categories as well.
