    Default F Andersen - do we dare?

    Seriously, been so underwhelming since the Break; 2.93GAA, 0 SO. The Wins are there of course, but the ratios are killing us in the playoffs.

    Do we start him tonight at home vs PHI? Or sit and watch?

    I'll be rolling out Mrazek for sure. Probably sit this one out with Frederik.

    You?

    All depends on the scenario. If you own him your GAA and SV% might be shot already so why not start him for the W or SO potential.

    +1 to this. In an head-to-head playoffs you probably have little to lose.

    Agree with the others. I think we see two goals against tonight. One by Laughton, and one by Sanheim. Good bet TO can pull out the win though.

    If I owned Andersen this is the type of start I'd dream of. Philly is on the second half of one of the toughest back-to-backs in hockey right now (WAS then TOR). Toronto is at home. Andersen and the team are primed to have a good showing tonight, sure it may not happen but my money is on a strong leaf performance all around. Of course it is always somewhat dependent on how your goalie cats are playing out this week but most of the time I'm starting him with confidence here.

    Unfort. I am in a Roto league where the top 4 teams are all within .010 GAA and SV% of each other.

    Another bomb from Andersen and i'm ****ed.

    I decided a long time ago going back to my roto baseball days, I start the player whenever I am hesitant. But you always have to without exception. I never second guess my decisions.

    And I am starting Andersen tonight.

    My fiancee thought his helmet was swiss cheese, but that was just the goaltending. Love the St. Pats uniforms, though.

    I have been unable to win a fantasy playoff series in forever due to my goaltending. Made the move to upgrade from Holtby to Andersen as the starter late last year, and lost in the first round. I ran into the Mikko Koskinen buzzsaw this year.
    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, Carlson, Gustafsson, Klingberg, Letang,
    F1: Couturier, Giroux, MacKinnon
    F2: Schiefele, Wheeler, Tuch
    F3: Benn, Seguin, Pavelski

    Hopefully no one started any goalies from this game. And everyone started JAKE MUZZIN.

    F*ck right off, Andersen. You killed us.

    My season is over thanks to this start.

    I started van Riemsdyk (I'll take it). On the bright side, Andersen got the win...
