    Cam Ward for me, but that's due to my owning him for the past two years during which he has been injured and struggled when he did play.

    Came down to Ward and Anderson for me. I voted Anderson because of how he still entices me, while I've given up on Ward.

    I'm going to go Anderson because of his good year/bad year tendencies. But I've caught onto his pattern now!

    Halak for me. Thought hard about Anderson though.

    Definitely Ward. He'd make a good backup, but owners still try to sell him as an elite starter.

    1) Cam Ward
    1B) Steve Mason - I own Mason and during the season last year I'd sit him cause I was thinking " this game he'll fall apart" then he would go out and have a monster game. I cannot tell you how many times last year he would put up a good game when I would sit him. Very frusterating from that aspect but as an owner I am happy how he's progressed in Philly. I guess the lesson here is I should trust him more next season.

    Ward with a bullet. I must admit this is personal though. He was quite valuable in my league because we count saves and he faced a lot of rubber a few years back. He also played close to 70 games a year. I thought I pulled a great trade when I bought him straight up for James Neal just after Neal disappointed in his first 20 games with PIT from DAL.

    But yeah, Ward felt like an asset that would appreciate when Jordan Staal and Alex Semin arrived to improve CAR and get Ward more wins. Sadly, CAR sucks anyways, and Ward basically lost his job to boot.

    Really like the format...

    Came down to Howard and Halak for me, I'm in a fanasty pool, you know Ottawa won't be too good, nor Carolina, and the weaker teams. I usually pick my goalies based on the team.

    Halak is my choice

    I dunno there's just something about him, injured, not quite stellar, he's the guy, but I tend to go with best of the mediocre...But I'm kinda indifferent with Howard, I just won't have him on my team, I'm just waiting for Mrazek to take over, but I have a feeling he might end up like Howard, so I have to conclude its the Lindstrom effect...

    St. Louis was always good, but you never knew when Halak was going to get injured, and at times Brian Elliott seemed to be the better option but he didn't have the contract to sustain it... I always ended up passing on Halak, I found that frustrating in a way.

    This year I'm might be tempted, but I know I shouldn't cause I'll probably regret it by January.

    In the end, I must say Halak is the more frustrating to me
