Bachman and Hackett...worth sitting on?
In a league where I can start 2/day, I am currently wrather full in the Goaltending department, albeit with a fe ?'s
Anchored by Bryz (Will he ever regain his elite status)
Halak (great 1st game...horrible 2nd)
Backstrom (always an injury concern and challenged by Harding)
I also have, who I feel is, one of the best back up tenders in the Game on the best team in Vokoun.
Before the start of the season (before I figured there would be a season) I picked up Hackett (after the Harding MS talk and Backstrom ankle injury) and Bachman (looked good last year behind once oft injured Lehtonen.
As the season is 3 days in and Hacket and Bachman returned to their AHL affiliates, I'm wondering if I should wait on either/both of these guys or cut ties. I'm a little iffy with my 3 #1's, although hope they will assume their usual load and consistency. But with these guys working in the minors, they're serving me no purpose here.
Do I make a move (perhaps pick up a Turris/McDonald/Erat/Kadri Holmqvist ...all currently available) or stand pat expecting Bachman to get the call up and resume his back up role (Hackett would require an injury which those 2 are quite capable of).
Others potential goalie replacements are:
I don't envision any of these guys to be keepers at years end (unless a starting role is likely)?
