    Default Got Ward, Drop Darling?

    This is for my 3rd goalie position in a 10 team H2H League
    G, A, +/-, PIM, PPP, SOG, GWG
    Wins, Shutouts, GAA, Saves

    My worry is by cutting bait on Darling this bites me in ass later if either goalie corrects their current "runs" and Darling gets (and keeps) the gig then?

    Drop him or keep him (Darling?)

    If this is a one year league, I'd probably drop Darling (assuming that carrying 4 goalies will hurt your F stats).

    Of course it's difficult to gauge without knowing how many starters each night, or if other teams typically have 4 tendys.

    I'm in the same boat in a 12-team league. I have Darling, Ward, Talbot, and I keep flipping between a 4th. We can only keep 1 goalie and it will probably be Talbot. Ward has been good lately.

    I'd probably hold on to Darling for now. The Canes have invested a four-year contract in him, so if Ward struggles I'd expect him to be back between the pipes quickly.

    Based on what we're seeing right now, ROS I predict 60-40 ward-darling split. I see it going back and forth a lot, Ward has proven he's worth a shot anytime Darling has a poor game. So it's just gonna bounce back and forth after loses.. With Ward have the benefit of currently being the hot hand and having taking the starting role for now
