    Bishop has been playing lights out.

    Though Scrivens will be a slightly longer-term play, since Reimer is not looking good right now (had trouble on the ice today).

    Hedberg is another option since Brodeur got IR'd, but the Devils are sinking out of the top of the East.

    I'd go with Scrivens. Bishop has been very good and the Senators continue to roll even without their star players, but I don't have much faith in them continuing. At this point I have more faith in the Leafs than the Senators, and that's why I take Scrivens. And for what it's worth, Anderson probably comes back before Reimer, and when both goalies are back, Scrivens should see more time with Reimer than Bishop will with Anderson.

    No brainer on Bishop. Bishop is always great when he comes in. Scrivens was a joke last season, he obviously hasn't become Toronto's number 1 goalie in the matter of an offseason and lockout. Ben Bishop was strong last season, and this season especially. Bishop all the way.
    Message me about your keeper leagues if you need another player. I'd love to be in a keeper league next season.
