    Default Halak or Reimer?

    This post is mostly cuz of the can Reimer take the starter job away from Mrazek thread. So I have Mrazek as one of my goalies and Halak is my 4th goalie. I was wondering would it be smart to drop Halak and pick up Reimer as insurance or keep Halak who I think is the best back up goalie out there?

    Halak will start between 30-35 games this yr, and can go 20-10 pretty easily, with a 915-918s%, 2.3-2.50gaa.

    It all depends on Reimer's potential of taking over Mrazek, and at that point Mrazek turns into a 50% starter. I prefer my 3rd/4th goalie to be the guy you can just toss into your lineup when you know they start and get good stats.

    So, I would say, if it's a daily start league, I like Halak, if it's a weekly start league...I don't think it would be ideal to have Mrazek and Reimer as you'll not start both. I get hedging Mrazek's starts with Reimer, but I'm sticking with Halak.


    PS. I've had a long day with minimal coffee. I kinda think my reasoning is not a streamlined thought. Sorry

    It is a daily start league so I can plug in Halak whenever he starts. That is why I drafted him late in the draft. I really don't think Reimer will end up taking the starters job away from Mrazek. Reimer is a good back up on a good team. Last night showed just that. The team scored 6 goals and Reimer allowed 3 goals and he still got a win. That is gonna happen on a good team with a good back up. I do agree that Halak will get 30-35 starts in Boston which is also a great team.

    Halak. Rask is more injury prone than Mrazek. Reimer is actually pretty injury prone himself.

    Greiss also in a similar role, backup on a solid team.
    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: Bobrovsky
    Backup G: F Andersen
    D: Ekblad, Yandle, M Reilly, Carlson, Klingberg, Letang
    F1: Couturier, Giroux, Voracek
    F2: Schiefele, Wheeler, Guentzel
    F3: Benn, Seguin, Pavelski
    F4: Stamkos, Tavares, MacKinnon


    Bench:
    Injured: Point
    G: Holtby
    D: Gardiner, Gustafsson, Makar, Morrissey
    F: Bailey, Bertuzzi, Cirelli, Johnsson, Labanc, JT Miller, Necas
    Reserve: Datsyuk

    Yep, I never said Reimer wasn’t a good goalie. Halak saw 35 shots in his start and stopped them all. He is pretty good too.
