looking for a third string goalie in a 20 team h2h league... got rask + lehner, mrazek on the farm. im looking for a guy to step in and spot start here and there who preferrably has starter upside long term.
i have my eye on what i deem to be 3 goalies that fit that description who are available for pick up.
all have goalies in front who have a starter in front of them and in most cases a back up for the time being.
i don`t see harding threatening kuemper.. gustafsson tho i hear may be a different story, but he`s still overseas so likely behind a year development wise.
hackett has enroth + miller in front, my guess is one is dealt, how soon and which one can make all the difference in the world for his value.
grubauer has holtby + neuvy in front, but neuvy i see getting dealt or KHL bound if he isn`t. thus paving the way for him to step in and be the new back up for the caps.
i wanna go with kuemper due to backstrom`s age. hackett has the pedigree tho + if miller is dealt he has a legitimate shot at starting in the next two years. talent alone i feel grubauer may have a leg up ever so slightly on the aforementioned, so i am really indecisive on who to go with.
i don`t know that i could make a bad selection between the three, but i am having trouble settling on a particular one. not much analysis available since the trade deadline of outlooks on hackett + kuempers respective futures yet. nor could i find much from teams stating long term plans with them being a part of it.
12 team h2h keep 5 + 1 goalie
