    Default Is Thomas a better option than Emery?

    I have Emery, but am debating Thomas off the wire.

    Stand pat or roll the dice on Timmy T??

    Yes, but a third tender is really useless in our league and with only 4 reserve spots, having 2 of them used on tenders hurts. I could take Mason to secure the tandem if so, but id rather roll with 2 max, as Niemi will be starting most games anyway.

    Take a chance on Timmy T. He's in great shape and said he feels rejuvenated and is excited to play hockey again. I think he will surprise a lot of people and Florida and going to be a lot better than people think (imo). I'd grab him now while you can. If you don't someone's going to beat you to the punch and you'll end up kicking yourself.

    Mason is worthless.

    I would take a gamble on TT relative low risk of you drop Erik Gustafsson who won't be worth much this season. TT obviously has the potential to make a big contribution to fantasy teams this season.

    Agreed re Mason. Just to clarify - it is dropping Emery for TT or rolling with Razor. I may drop Gusty regardless, but it will be for a D.

    The only thing with FLA is that I can't see them letting Markstrom rot on the bench, so I'd imagine a 60/40 split. That's the same that I see Razor/Mason, but Philly is a better team, so I'm not sure there is that much more value in TT.

    Kinda back and forth on this one

    I think you are back and forth because that really is the choice as it presents itself. I think Thomas is a better goalie even with the layoff and I don't think the Flyers are going to be that much better than the Panthers this season. Could be wrong but I see your choice as being pretty much a coin flip until we see these guys play a little this season.

    pretty close once all is said and done --of course depends on cats used

    I think Mason shits the bed giving Emery 50+ starts while TT should see similar amount of starts in Fla.

    both likely win about 25-28 games

    There is a good chance I will be faced with the same dilemma, and I think I will opt for Timmy Thomas as well. Florida is healthy this year (they were decimated by injuries last season) and their youth core will be a year more experienced. Philly got older and didn't do much to improve their team, so I actually give Florida the nod in the team dept.

    I also think TT is the much better goalie and has a greater chance of staying healthy. Timmy offers the highest upside of the two IMO.

    I'm excited to see Thomas in action again and Florida's D is much better than the Flyers D.

    Thomas is also the better goalie.

    Stand pat.
