    Default Drop Dubnyk for Bishop?

    Oilers really are not playing at the level I was hoping for.
    My 3 G are Howard, Luongo and Dubnyk. Howard is the only one playing well. Thinking I could take a chance on Bishop and drop Dubnyk?
    The only other starter available is Ryan Miller.

    stats: W, GAA, SV%, SHO

    Be patient, he will turn things around. I think your best move would be to grab Miller over Bishop, but I have faith the Oilers will bounce back HARD soon. I would stand pat ATM.

    I would take Miller just because he will get 90% of the starts, good #3 to have on your team. No confidence whatsoever in Dubnyk.

    I don't have much confidence in Dubnyk either.

    But I'd probably go Bishop over Miller in a one year league, since I just can't imagine a scenario where the Sabres win a game this year. [Perhaps exaggerating a little.]

    Miller could be gold, though, if he gets traded.

    Bishop is a riskier pick (perhaps less starts), but I like the upside enough to go that route...
