    Default Saros, Samsonov, Sorokin or Giles? Goalie pick help.

    Ready to make a goalie pick in my inaugural dynasty draft. Which of these 4 will bring the biggest bang for my buck short vs long term.

    32 team league. This will be my future stud. But looking for production sooner than later.

    Iím next up in the clock.

    Thanks Nation

    I think Saros may be the best pick here. He's already in the NHL and soon to take over the #1 reigns in a year or two. Samsonov would be my next pick. Sorokin is intriguing but he is a rather small goalie. I know Gillies was highly touted at one point but I believe his value is the least among these 4 goalies.

    Saros
    Samsonov
    Sorokin
    Gillies

    1. Saros
    2. Die roll between the rest.
    3. Gilles
    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: Hainsey, M Reilly, Carlson, Gustafsson, Klingberg, Letang,
    F1: Couturier, Giroux, MacKinnon
    F2: Schiefele, Wheeler, Guentzel
    F3: Benn, Seguin, Pavelski,
    F4: Point, Stamkos, Tavares

    Bench:
    G: Bobrovsky
    D: Gardiner, Gostisbehere, Schultz, Werenski
    F: Bailey, Johnsson, Killorn, Labanc, JT Miller, Necas, Tuch, Voracek

    Reserve: Datsyuk

    Saros would be the obvious choice, but if you like taking risks, and don't mind the wait, Sorokin is unreal!
    12 team lifetime pool. 18 skaters - No positional requirements / 3 goalies (2 count for points)
    Taxi Squad - players have 5 year protection then must be called up or dropped.
    Goals and Assists count for points. Goalies get 1.5 for a win / 4.5 pts for a SO and points for G/A.

    Skaters:
    Dvorak, Fiala, Letang, Sikura, Lehkonen, Bratt, Ho Sang, Kaprizov, Haula, Jankowski, Jokiharju, Simmonds, Tanev, Donato, Hinostroza, S. Bennett, Beauvillier, Batherson.

    Goalies:
    Shestyorkin, Demko, Varlamov


    Taxi squad: Forsbacka-Karlsson, Liljegren, Samsanov


    - I'm no expert but I try really hard

    Great feedback. Thanks! I think I’m leaning Saros but will keep my eye on the unreal one!

    Where do people sit on Gilles now? I just took over a dynasty team and noticed he was an FA in our league. As someone with Garrett Sparks as the second best goalie prospect he inherited, how quickly should I pick him up? (Sorry for the slightly off-topic post, I just didn't want to start a new topic while Gilles was mentioned here already)

    I would rather have Gillies over Sparks. Don't think Sparks will be much more than a back-up goalie. Gillies may or may not make a name for himself in the NHL but I believe his CEILING is much higher than Sparks.

    As tempting as Samsonov and Sorokin are, you have to take Saros here.
