    Question Looking to cut Koskinen for a better G option. Thoughts? (REP)

    12-team H2H league. Goalie stats are W, GAA, SV%, and SO. Roster/settings in sig.

    I'm rolling the dice on my goalies, and want to carry 4 "lottery ticket" type goaltenders until a pattern emerges and I know who to keep and who to bail on. My number 1 consideration is Halak, as he's a super safe bet and will get a solid chunk of starts, but there may be some options with higher potential ceilings (Samsonov and Saros for example). Who do you like out of this group, and why?

    - Halak
    - Samsonov
    - Saros
    - Ullmark
    - Georgiev
    - Korpisalo
    - Allen
    - Korpisalo
    - Khudobin
    - Blackwood
    - Howard
    - Quick
    - Dell

    Thanks in advance!

    I'll go with Halak, Saros, Howard, and Quick for now. I lean towards Halak though.

    I think I'd drop Koskinen for most of that list, honestly.

    Backups that should give you decent ratios:
    - Halak
    - Samsonov
    - Saros
    - Georgiev
    - Khudobin

    Could be a backup, could be a starter, should be useful:
    - Blackwood

    Guys who are starters, but may be questionable quality of what you get:
    - Ullmark
    - Howard
    - Quick
    - Ullmark

    Don't touch:
    - Korpisalo (listed twice, you only need to avoid once)
    - Allen
    - Dell

    I think there are 4 keepers to consider. Samsanov, Saros, Halak and Howard. Detroit might have improved enough to get you worthwhile wins. I always thought Saros was the backup to have, but Halak might be stealing that mantle. Either way, I think Saros is going to get more games than normal and he has the potential to win a lot of them with great peripheral stats. Samsonov might be getting more of a workout than a regular backup because the Caps have to make some tough goalie decisions this year. In addition, they probably don't want to run their starter into the ground before the playoffs.
    In a 10 league where we start 3C, 3LW, 3RW, 4D and 2 G daily. It is a H2H league - we keep 3 players (1 G max), are allowed a max of 2 keeps for each player and track G, A, +/-, PIMs, PPG, PPA, Shots, W, GAA, SV% and Saves. The number in brackets is the number of keeps I have left:

    C - Larkin, Couturier, Trocheck, W. Karlsson, Kopitar,
    LW - OV, Panarin (1), Schenn (C), Benn (C)
    RW - Kucherov (0), Radulov, Nikolaj Ehlers (LW)
    D - E. Karlsson, Klefborn, Trouba, Nurse

    G - Vasilevskiy (0), Hart, Reimer, Greiss

    IR - Empty
