Ok gentleman, like many of you Andy owners out there, he is probably a huge reason why our teams are humming along so far. For me, Andy along with Rinne are the key reasons I'm in first place in my longtime big $$ pool league. The stats especially from Anderson have been spectacular from the start to say the least and I'd be lying if I said that I thought he'd be this good. He's been en fuego and couldn't be happier.
Here's the rub though and my question: The unfortunate injury to Karlsson is a bit of a kiljoy as this injury will undoubtadly be more devastating than the Spezza injury was as IMO, EK was and is the straw that stirs the drink in Ottawa.
That said, how do we play this one folks?
1. In keeper leagues like the one I'm in, if we can maybe deal Andy for a Raske, CPrice or Lundy to a team that is tanking, we bite the bullet on a potential keeper and do it and deal him away
2. Hold tight, hang on to Andy and have faith Maclean can keep the troops going and maybe Sens pull off a deal for a Wiz type Dman and they'll end up being fine and Andy's stats won't suffer all to much
I'm leaning towards option 2 seeing I think Sens will play even more defensivly as they have been and hope and pray to win games 2-1 like the Preds do and hope Andy keeps up his solid play. Once again though, I'd be lying if I said I wasn't nervous that Sens will have a VERY hard time winning hockey games going forward and that it might be a good idea to deal Andy right now rather than wait as his value might not be any higher than it is now even if a "market correction" is coming and his stats might tend to get a bit back to normal which is still good but you know what I mean
So what are you Andy owners doing? And you non Andy owners, would you want him now as your goalie with no EK and Spezza?
