    Default Lundqvist or Raanta?

    Keeper league settings in the signature. With so many teams, I usually try to run with three goalies to have an edge. Last year I picked up Raanta when he returned from injury and was a nice coup for the 2nd half last year. Lundqvist and Quick have been my duo for a long time.

    I don't think the Rangers will be as bad as they're being projected to be, but with that being said, is Raanta the clear cut keeper choice over Lundqvist?

    Raanta's SV% & GAA were unbelievable last year, but is it reasonable for him to whiff those numbers again this season? With goalies a hot commodity, does Lundqvist's "brand name" lend himself to being a reason to keep him and hoping Raanta may fly under the radar?

    I just won last year and am in a position to compete again this year. Who makes the most sense?

    The Rangers will be that bad and Lundy is not getting any younger. Raanta is the guy to keep.

    The reward for playing it safe with Lundqvist isn't that big any more, so I'm in favour of taking the gamble (if you can call it that) on the less proven guy. Raanta may not put up numbers like that again, but I would still take him over the much more established Henrik, because like I said the reward just isn't that great. Two goalies and two teams that seem to be headed in different directions.
