    Default Smith or Koskinen

    I own both Mike Smith and Koskinen but only have room on my roster for one of them. Who gets the most playing time? Or is this a truly 1A/1B situation where they both get 41 starts each?

    Smith is currently on my main roster and Koskinen is on my farm. I would have to drop Smith to make room for Koskinen if that is the way I would go.

    Thanks

    Can you keep Koskinen on your farm and keep Smith?

    Yes. Koskinen can stay on my farm all year. That was my original plan, but Smith joining the Oil made me question what I should do.

    I think Koskinen will be the man to start the year in Edmonton. He has the contract to give him some leeway. If goalies are hard to come by then I would just leave smith on your roster and Mikko in the minors. You won’t be hurting for starts with your other 3 starters.

    If there are a bunch of backup goalies on the FA then I’d consider cutting bait on Smith.

    Dobber himself preaches following the contract because teams will give that guy every chance to succeed. Koskinen got that 3-year, $4.5m deal, while Smith is on a one-year. Koskinen likely gets the initial nod and more of an overall chance than Smith does, but I'm not confident in either goalie fantasy-wise

    Good advice, might as well hang onto them both if possible and if Koskinen goes on a good run, call him up

    While this is true, Holland didn't sign the deal.

    Probably Koskinen, but if you can hang on to both then why not go that route? Better hedge your bets on this one, since it's kind of a wide open situation.

    Neither if that was a possibility, but just to answer the question, I prefer Koskinen over Smith. But with your particular case
    your best route should be to keep Koskinen in the minors and start the season with Smith.
