    Default Should I bet on any of these goalies?

    All the guys in my league kept 2 goalies except me and one GM.

    This guy doesn't have a single goalie, so he will probably go for Talbot in the first round before my pick.
    I am desperate to go for a goalie in the first or second round(8th pick snaking) as well, but pretty much all good goalies are gone.

    Lundqvist, Crawford, Schneider, Smith, Elliott, and Luongo are available, but I am little worried to have them for my second goalie.
    Which goalie would be the best option?

    Or should I bet on any of the goalies this year?
    Hutton, Grubauer, Markstrom, Raanta, Darling, and Ullmark

    Appreciate your input guys!

    Raanta and Smith, followed by Schneider, Lundqvist, Crawford.

    I'd avoid Grubauer, Darling and Ullmark early on.

    Definitely Raanta. He would be a really good second option with your categories with a ton of upside. Honestly might even be your best goalie by season's end. After that I think I would prefer Schneider, Smith, Lundqvist, Crawford, Luongo, Elliott, Grubauer in roughly that order. Crawford would shoot to the top of the list if we knew his health situation would improve. I'm not really interested in Hutton, Markstrom, or Darling. Maybe Ullmark as someone you keep en eye on to see how things play out.

    Get Raanta and you will be in really great shape with your goaltending.

    If everyone in your league kept 2 goalies except you and another GM I'd seriously consider not picking one till later in the draft.

    Why waste a high end pick on a position everyone else has filled?

    With 20 already gone, you're already into the bottom 1/3 of goalies and there won't be a huge difference between 21st and backups.

    Like mound & pmorrow said, Raanta is your best bet, followed by Smith & Schneider.

    If you don't get Raanta, this is exactly what you should do. Wait.

    Talbot (you never know) and then Raanta. Then Crawford, Smith, Schneider, Hutton, Elliott, Darling, Luongo, and Markstrom. Grubauer and Ullmark would be goalies to keep an eye on, unless you have a deep bench.

    Thanks all for the input!
    I guess my main target should be Raanta in the second round.

    ^This

    I don't mind targeting Raanta in the second round but if he is gone, don't leave a big player on the board to draft a lesser goalie. Focus on position players and fill out your G in the later draft. You could even go with a tandem situation by drafting both goalies on a team like Colorado/Buffalo/Florida/Philly assuming that both goalies are still around.
    Without me, it's only "aweso".
