Hard decision - what to do with Schneider
Seriously need input here. Here's what you need to know (league details in sig).
1. Got great value when drafted Schneider at $7 (King=$30, Quick=$28, etc). Can keep Schneider next year for $9 total (again great value) and $11 in year 3, etc. Short story, he's a great keeper.
2. I'm looking like a lock for this week's matchup which will give me a record of 6-2 with 3 weeks left. By my calculations if you go 7-4 you're locked in the playoffs (top 4 of 10 get in). So i'm looking pretty good and feel I have legit chance to win.
3. Schneider is killing me this year! I have Holtby who's become my #1 starter. Using the schedule calculator I figure ou that if WAS plays him every game and VAN plays Schneider every game that doesn't conflict with WAS's games...Schneider would give me 8 extra starts. Lets splits those and he's basically going to give me 4-5 starts.
4. I have the option to drop him and pick up one of Hiller, Kipper or Dubnyk. All of which would give me 12+ extra starts on top of Holtby's remaining starts.
So question is clear. Is one of those G (Hiller, Kipper, Dubby) at stay 10 starts better Schneider at 4-5 starts BUT I lose Schneider as a good value keeper going forward.
