    Default Drop Darling for?

    Team is in my signature. I am close to last in all goalie categories. No thanks to my believing in Talbot. What a disaster. Darling is my #3 and looks like he may be losing the starter job to Ward. Would you pick up any of these FA's to replace Darling and possibly use instead of Talbot for a while until maybe, just maybe Edmonton can figure things out?

    In order of % owned on ESPN

    Reimer
    Hutton
    Bernier
    Markstrom
    Ward
    Varly
    Luongo
    Dell

    If you need help ASAP, I'd go Ward. I'd also consider Luongo longer term if you have the space to hold him. Even if he splits starts with Reimer when he gets back, he's a solid option as a third who's better than Darling. As a fellow Darling owner, I feel your pain.

    Short term Reimer is my pick. He's been really good and is the guy until at least early February when Lou is expected back. Even then he may steal the job or at least get into a share situation if he keeps it up.
    Set roster weekly in H2H (Mon to Sun) - 16 Teams - start 6F, 3D, and 1G per week - Keep 2

    Points: 2 G / 2 A / 1 PPG / 1 PPA / 1 Hat Trick / 1 SHG / 1 SHA / 1 GWG - 3 Goalie Win / 2 Goalie Loss in SO or OT / 5 goalie SO

    Forwards:
    S. Crosby, R. Getzlaf, N. MacKinnon, J. Huberdeau, B. Little, T. Hertl, R. O'Reilly

    Defense:

    I own Darling as well. I'd drop him for a cheeseburger that was stepped on, covered with bugs, with no wrapper. In response to your options, Id drop him for any of: Varly, Reimer, Lou (depending on your outlook, but hes prolly the most solid of these options, but old and on IR) or Markstrom. Those are in no order, but I think all 4 are better options for varying reasons.

    Thanks for the input. I've been looking at the upcoming schedules starting 1/15 and going thru 1/28. I'm thinking of maybe grabbing Hutton since he has been playing more lately and ease of schedule. He should get 2-3 starts within that schedule. Edm and Talbot are scheduled to play Van, Buf, Cgy. My thoughts are to dump Darling, pick up one of the guys from below and sit Talbot. I don't have to decide until next Monday. Maybe Talbot will turn the corner.

    So now that Crawford could be out for a while longer, does Glass or Forsberg come into play here?

    They could but its a crapshoot as to who takes the starting job. In terms of Darling, I'm hearing he's going to be getting another shot shortly-Cam Ward hasn't looked good lately and don't forget they're heavily invested in Darling. Of course, this isn't a guarantee of success, but if he can even be half-decent he'd make an ok third goalie.

    I have been waiting for this to happen, I guess he could get another shot this week.

    I lean toward Ward, has been on a good run, sub last two starts. Second option would be Reimer.

    Looks like Darling is going tonight. Here's hoping for a good showing!

    I'd go with Varlamov. Reimer might be good now but Luongo will be back soon. Varly is also out but it sounds like a minor injury. Also if Darling plays well tonight and Ward plays poorly tomorrow, maybe he gets a bit of a run. I would want to own neither, or at least both (for the handcuff) of the Carolina goalies right now.

    Flip a coin. Drop him already. Any of those options aren’t worse. I like Reimer/Luongo. Less stable is. Varly/Bernier but they’re a fun start (Bernier) lately.

    Well, I picked up Bernier based on schedule, number of games and strength of play lately. Thanks for the advise.
