    Default Gauging the goalies.

    I am very confident that when the season starts the goaltending market will fluctuate the greatest. Looking at some of the current goalie values has me scratching my head. I really think they made it easy on us on which goalie to take. They gave us little options.

    Were we supposed to go with the best value?
    I went Rask/Lundqvist, I think... going with value at skater slots.

    Thats funny.

    I was going to mention this but omitted it from the post.

    Rask and Lundqvist are the only two goalies, north of 7M, I can justify picking.

    Only thing that I'd add is that the Rangers start on the road while MSG is getting refurbed... The Rangers play 10 of their first 11 games on the road, and generally speaking teams don't fare as well on the road as they do on their home turf. Rangers were ranked 23rd in offense on the road last season, which gave them a 10-12-2 road record.

    Lundy went 8-10-2 on the road last season compared to 16-6-1 record at home. With that said, traditionally speaking Lundy is a pretty decent road player, so this might be a blessing.

    If I'm playing the "up and down cycle", I'd probably start with Quick and Luongo as the "value" picks, then swap over to Lundy once they get over this "road heavy" schedule in November.

    My 2 cents.

    You and your home/road splits.
    In 2011-2012, a full season with greater sample size, the Rangers were essentially as good on the road as at home.

    They open with four games in the Southwest (PHX,SJ,ANA,LA) and slowly come back East (STL, WAS, NJ, PHI).
    I think they (and Lundqvist) will win 5/8... which is pretty good.

    I don't believe travel/road fatigue is a factor to open a season.

    Are you all really saying to jump on Luongo?
    His Octobers are legendarily terrible.

    I am going to wait until mid-late October, everyone will drop Lu and then I will ride his good November-onwards stats months.

    There were three years in a row at one point where he had 2-3 shutouts in a row in early-mid november. If you disregard his October stats for his career, he breaks all sorts of statistical records and would have won at least one or two Vezinas. It is pretty ridiculous.

    Ya, October is bad for Lou. But the odds of anyone dropping Roberto Luongo even after a 2-9 start with a 3.03 GAA and .897 SV% are pretty slim. I mean, people kept Lindback and Varlamov all of last year

    I am going out on a limb here and going to assume that the majority of people have Quick and Lou as their two goalies right now.

    I didn't take Quick. I wanted to go a bit cheaper in net, so went with Lou and Halak. I think Halak starts off hot, and then I can sell him for a better player with the extra money.
