    Default Cam Talbot

    Another manager in the first league in my sig just dropped Cam Talbot. I have the top waiver spot. Would you drop Lehner for him?

    The obvious answer is yes (IMO), but the keeper rules in that league are based on where you drafted the guy, and I got Lehner in the 21st round (second to last round of our draft). We get 5 keepers, only 1 can be a goalie. Dropping him would permanently void his keeper draft capital. Is Lehner's potential as a solidified starter on an improved (?) NYI squad next season at a late-round discount enough to stand pat this season and ignore Talbot's presumed ROS advantage? Since it's a points-based league, Talbot's extra starts would go a long way.

    Note that I got Gibson in the 9th round, which also seems like very good value for next year. So there's a chance I wouldn't keep Lehner anyway.



    As I type this, it seems like I've talked myself into picking up Talbot. If anybody disagrees, please save me from myself.

    There is almost zero chance that you keep Lehner or Talbot over Gibson so the draft round is a moot point. I'd consider picking up Talbot and dropping a skater*. Hoard four goalies (Hellebuyck, Gibson, Lehner, Talbot). In a start 2 daily this would give you a huge comptative advantage. It would also give you ammunition to make a trade down the road if and when you need to solidify your team for the playoffs.

    * I can't see Vrana being all that important to your squad.

    I agree with Moses to drop a skater. If Lehner grabs the starter's job, that 21st round keeper cost becomes a big advatnage for a team out of looking for a keeper goalie.
    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: F Andersen
    Backup G: Holtby
    D: Gardiner, M Reilly, Letang, Klingberg, Gostisbehere, Carlson
    F1: Voracek, Giroux, Couturier
    F2: Wheeler, Schiefele, Tavares
    F3: Benn, Seguin, MacKinnon
    F4: Stamkos, Point, JT Miller

    Bench:
    G: (none)
    D: Ekman-Larsson, Werenski, Orlov
    F: Pavelski, Bailey, Guentzel, Sprong, Killorn, Bjorkstrand, Tuch, Labanc, Donato, Necas

    Reserve:
    Datsyuk

    Crap! Forgot to mention there is a 3 goalie max roster limit in this league!
