    1. Crawford (no brainer, #1G on the best team in hockey)
    2. Howard slight edge over Backstrom b/c Detroit a better team (in theory)
    3. Backstrom
    4. Schneider 4th b/c splitting starts with Lu
    5/6. Halak/Fasth both seem to have been supplanted by Hiller/ Allen for now.

    So if he plays 60/40... does he still the best option anyway?

    Thanks!

    Honestly I'll have to put Backstrom up there. He may be #1 or #2. Wild is playing well and team is starting to seem to come together. Backstrom is the undisputed starter. The other goalies (other than Howard) are in a timeshare.

    As my 2nd option, I'm torn between Howard and Crawford. Crawford will win most games but he won't start half the time. Already starting 60% of the games, he is not guaranteed to win all games. Crawford will probably get roughly 2 games a week, Howard would get 3, sometimes 4 depending on how he is playing since they don't have a good enough back up. I think I would give the edge to Howard. Although Detroit is slumping, he will get most starts and they should get their act together soon enough. Chicago was off to a crazy start, has come back down to earth a little with injuries to their top players.

    Detroit: 18 games remaining, 5 back to back
    Detroit (minus last week - no fantasy games): 14 games, 4 back to back
    Chicago: 18 games remaining, 5 back to back
    Chicago (minus last week - no fantasy games): 14 games, 4 back to back

    My guess is Howard will at least play 10-12 games
    Crawford may play 8 games

    My bet is Howard has a good chance to go around between 8-4 and 6-4
    Crawford best chance will go 8-0, more likely 7-1 or 6-2

    It's close but Howard has the better chance of winning 1 or 2 more games.

    I would agree with khiyasu's post.

    I think Crawford is the safe bet, although if the scheudle permits, I would wager he gets a few more starts heading into the playoffs unless he needs time to heal. In a shortened season, some positions just keep playing right into the playoffs versus lightening the load before the cup run.

    If I needed to make a gamble I would go with Backstrom. It's a gamble I like since Minnesota's been playing very well but Crawford seems like a more stable option. If you need the points I would gamble on Backstrom, if not Crawford could do the trick.
