    Let's not forget, it's not like Lehner is coming in as the incumbent starter. He's coming in and will compete with Greiss for playing time. I know, it's not like the competition is strong, but it's not like Lehner has been a pillar himself. If he was, he wouldn't be signing another short term, low money contract. Mitch Korn could come in and do wonders for Greiss' game too.

    Yeah, it's easy to see a scenario where Lehner gets banged up early and Greiss gets some momentum. Lots of chapters still to be written in this story and each of them have an unpredictable outcome.

    [QUOTE=ericdaoust;1898908]It was a typo. Not sure.

    So at best we'll see what we've already seen from him in Buffalo. Two out of his three years there were .920 or better. Maybe Trotz's system can help his year-to-year consistency but it's too early to go there because Lehner signed a one-year deal. Plus he didn't suddenly become durable just because he signed with a new team. He'll still miss his share of games. The only question is will he miss five games or 50?[/QUOTE]

    Yes... indeed... that is a VERY relevant question. I expect what we've seen in Philly for years with 2 average potential starters that will volley back and forth depending on their previous games (I guess that's what we've had with Halak and ______ truth be told). That Clearly has NOT worked for Philly (man wouldn't they like Bob back) so I don't expect much difference for NYI. They're waiting on their stud coming up through the system.

    Its a late round flyer or cheap trade that could really pay off. He was traded for a first round pick to arguably the worst team in hockey. The Sabres regularly iced an AHL D corps with Risto. Braden Holtby was mired in the deepest funk of his career when Trotz came in. Those results speak for themselves.
    Again, it's low-risk, solid reward from the fantasy angle. It's a fun speculative play.
    HB, this one would be a pretty big call. Plenty of sound reasoning behind the Lehner cynicism.

    When Trotz came into Washington he was working with a much better core than what he's inheriting in New York. He's a good coach but even good coaches came only do so much with what they are handed.

    I think it's likely Trotz improves the Islanders defense, but probably not a whole lot this year, with lots of the same guys under contract. With lehner having a 1 year deal, it may pay off for you, but it's very likely the goalie who will reap the most benefits isn't currently on the roster.
    10 team Head-to-head true dynasty. Roster 33, draft 2, cut down before season. Start 1 G, 1-2 backup G's, 6 D, 12 F arranged in 4 lines of 3. Only categories that matter are Goals, Assists, Save% with a shutout bonus. Having NHL teammates helps.

    G: Holtby
    Backup G: F Andersen
    D: Carlson, Niskanen, Orlov, Letang, Klingberg, Gostisbehere
    F1: Voracek, Giroux, Couturier
    TBD:
    F2: Wheeler, Schiefele
    F3: Benn, Seguin,
    F4: Stamkos, Point
    F5: Tavares, Bailey
    Spare: MacKinnon

    Bench:
    G: (none)
    D: M Reilly, Ekman-Larsson, Werenski
    F: JT Miller, Namestnikov, Guentzel, Pavelski, Killorn, Bjorkstrand, Tuch, Labanc, Nyquist, Sprong
