    Question Gibson vs. Hellebuyck

    Who do you pick starting now between John Gibson and Connor Hellebuyck in a 14 team dynasty league (with salary cap)?
    Goalie stats are GPT3, Saves and Sv%.

    I'll go with Gibson here because of Save % and the fact you use GPT3 instead of just straight up wins.

    According to google: GPt3: (Wins x 2) + Overtime Losses + Shootout Losses + Shutouts.

    Quite fancy! Not sure I like it though, but as long as the whole league agrees to it, it's fun to have a new 'stat'.

    I would go with Gibson for sure in this situation.

    I much prefer using actual words and full names every time. That way the person asking for help gets the best feedback. Also, Gibson > Hel.

    It honestly looks like a better stat than just using goalie Wins. It's like pitching in baseball ... we know that using wins as a metric to evaluate the performance of a pitcher is incomplete, and in fact a better measure of the team itself. Similar logic applies to goaltending in hockey. Sure, wins are important and obviously that's the name of the game, but in terms of evaluating the performance of goaltenders it's a limited perspective.

    GPT3 appears to diminish the importance of wins by giving weight to things like Shootout and Overtime losses, so that selecting goalies from good teams doesn't become the be-all end-all in fantasy drafting. I kinda like it.

    Gibson is my choice too. I'm pretty low on Helly for the upcoming season, though.
