    Default Goalie Doldrums - help for ROS!

    In a pretty lousy situation here: I'm in a points-only league that starts only 1 goalie and I have one move remaining for the rest of the season. I've added my thought-line after the FAs.

    My goalies: Bishop, Jarry, Mason (would have dropped by now, but limited season moves...) So, obviously Mason and Jarry need to go, but the goalie FAs are pretty thin:

    Hutton - Read another thread about Hutton, consensus is that he'll keep getting starts if he keeps getting wins...worth the risk here?
    Lehtonen - Could go with the Dallas tandem here and guarantee myself starts
    Saros - has been starting about every third game for a strong team
    Dell - Sharks have lost 4 straight...not sure what happens here
    Miller - Gibson is a bandaid boy, but is Miller worth it my last move?
    Forsberg - Corey Crawford waiting game continues...
    Ward - not sure he'll keep the starting gig here, though Darling has been baaad
    Darling - Has been baaaad
    Subban - Not many starts...
    DeSmith - Not familiar with him, other than that he has stayed up while my Jarry got sent down.

    Gut says Hutton, Saros or maybe Lehtonen for the tandem in Dallas.

    This move is basically my home run swing as I'm in second place. I could grab a scoring forward (Atkinson, Haula and others) but if Bishop goes down I'm in (bigger) trouble.

    Thanks in advance - will rep!

    Definitely grab ward. He's got the starting job locked up right now and Darling hasn't done anything to say otherwise (also shutout tonight!) and then either Saros or Lehtonen. Saros is getting more starts as it gets closer to playoff time so they can rest Rinne

    Hutton or Ward would get my vote. You'll probably get 50% of the starts for the rest of the season out of both of them.

    Makes me think Hutton > Ward for # wins at 50% utilization.

    I think the choice is whether to handcuff or not. What are your categories? If Lehtonen is a danger to blow up rate stats, I'd likely not handcuff.

    Cat's are just wins/loss/SO, so not a danger in my mind.

    Jeeeez - never thought I'd be picking Cam Ward here...and Hutton's Save percentage is nuts, though maybe it's due for regression?

    Given your categories, I'd take Lehtonen for the handcuff.

    I just might have to for security! Hutton sure is tempting! I suppose the difference in potential starts down the stretch isn't enough to warrant not taking the handcuff?

    Allen with the loss today - guessing that Hutton goes back in next game.

    Another vote for this. Especially since Bishop isn’t a stranger to IR and if he goes down your goaltending is totally hosed.

    GOALIE: W(2), GA(-1.5), Saves(0.3), SO(3)
    Positions - 3C, 2RW, 2LW, 4D, 2G, 5 Bench, 4 IR (Max of 4 goalies)

    Ha! No. But he's been on the IR forever and I don't have any other injuries (knock on wood). Going to have to drop Jarry or probably Guentzal / Galchenyuk to make the move. And I can leave Mason on the IR, he doesn't take up any roster space, and IF he comes back even a game or two of starts could get me a few points in a tight race to the end.

    Yep - been debating him or risking it on Hutton. But I'll likely take the handcuff.
