    Default Bishop, Dubnyk, or Raanta

    Hi all. For my league below (note the scoring and the value that saves have...5 saves wipe out 1 goal against, so goalies who put up a lot of saves can be just a valuable as goalies with high win totals). All 3 of these goalies can be had for the same price (a late 1st round draft pick). Who would you choose and how close would he be to your second choice?
    12 Team, Keep 9 (max 2 goalies) + Keep 1 Prospect (<162 NHL games). Weekly H2H w/ Daily Lineups.
    PLAYER: G(3), A(2), D-man Pts(addt'l 0.5), +/-(1), PPG(addt'l 1.5),PPA(addt'l 1), SHP(addt'l 0.5), SOG(0.4), BLK(0.7)
    GOALIE: W(2), GA(-1.5), Saves(0.3), SO(3)
    Positions - 3C, 2RW, 2LW, 4D, 2G, 5 Bench, 4 IR

    C - Zibanejad, Wheeler, J Toews, Cirelli
    LW - Ovechkin, Laine(RW), Pacioretty (injured)
    RW - Kucherov, Oshie, Buchnevich
    D - Hedman (injured), Josi, Burns, Girard
    G - Vasilevskiy, Demko, McElhinney, Domingue
    IR - Rielly(D), Makar(D), Markstrom(G), Kakko(RW - Prospect Keeper)

    For the same cost it is Bishop pretty easily.

    It's between Bishop and Dubnyk for me. Keumper was too good to fully toss back into the backup role, so I think Raanta will see the lightest work load of the three.

    Dubnyk has a better track record for health over Bishop, but his numbers are trending down as Bishop just put up great numbers last year.

    Dumba was hurt last year, so a return to form would be a boost for the Wild D. Dubnyk should see more rubber. I can see why it would be tight.

    Despite all of this, I think that I would still go with Bishop. I just don't see the Wild being any good this year.

    Bishop.... Minn's a mess and Kuemper should have eaten into Raanta's starts with his performance last year - not to mention injury concerns.
    Dallas is a top defensive team in the league and should be in the mix for the division.
    Yesterday's weirdness is tomorrow's reason why. - H.S.T.

    Can we get some context on why you're trading a first round pick for any of them?

    My pick would be Bishop, but is he worth it?
