    Default Tonight's goalie dilemma: Holtby, Thomas, Harding

    I could use your help on choosing who to start tonight (all three are confirmed). Context is important so here are the details:

    Holtby vs Columbus (home)
    Thomas vs Minnesota (home)
    Harding at Florida (away)

    12 team, Yahoo one year, H2H category win
    W, GAA, SV, SV% + 9 offensive categories
    Two starting goalie slots

    I'm trailing my matchup 8-5, but winning all of the goalie categories:

    W: 3 to 2
    GAA: 2.00 to 2.44
    SV: 205 to 137
    SV%: .932 to .919

    My opponent has Rinne, Smith and Halak (first two currently in starting lineup). Nashville plays tomorrow as well against Winnipeg. I have Pavelec.

    Realistically I can only win two more offensive categories unless I have a big night so I'm a bit indecisive on who I should choose to start. Thomas and Harding likely guarantees a win, but I wonder if Holtby should at least be in there. If I lose, I'm hoping to limit the damage.

    Anyway, I would appreciate your insight to help make my decision easier. Thanks in advance.

    Holtby and Harding. Holtby is turning it around, he should have won his last couple but isnt getting any support. CBJ isn't scoring much. Harding is just damn solid so far.

    Thanks guys. Just to confirm that I don't have to start two, keeping in mind my matchup situation. Happy to, but just want to make sure context is considered.
