    Default Starting Bob..definition of insanity

    Insanity has been described as doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. Bob owners keep trotting him out there and expecting something other than what his numbers all season have said that he is. Horrible. Playoff teams are probably stuck running him out there every game hoping that he'll find that spark the last 20 games but there is absolutely noting to suggest that even a turn around to decent is coming this season.

    Meanwhile my combo of Markstrom, Demko, Stalock and Georgiev is doing well enough to get above-average results in a 12-team league

    Goaltending is getting weird.

    I'm starting Bob in my league in sig, due to him being my best option right now. I could switch to Andersen now that he's back, but need another Toronto D to do that. Plus, only one game counts per week, so it's more random than most leagues.

    For terrible goalies, my other dynasty team had the following at start of season, start 2 G daily, W, SV% GAA, SHU:

    Starters: Murray, Elliott
    Reserves: Delia, Konovalov, McElhinney, Merzlikins, Nilsson, Reimer, Shesterkin, Stalock, Sparks, Ustimenko

    Cut this year: Sparks, Ustimenko
    Added this year: Greiss (in trade), Senn, Werner

    My goalies are tied for 5th best overall. I was hoping for 8th-10th in a post before the season, and was told it wasn't likely to happen. With skating domination, the team is in first place.

    We just don't know.
    10 team Head-to-head true dynasty. Roster 33, draft 2, cut down before season. Start 1 G, 1 backup G, 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:Jarry
    Backup G: F Andersen
    D: Carlson, DeAngelo, Letang, Marino, Makar, Yandle
    F1: Couturier, Giroux, Voracek
    F2: Schiefele, Wheeler, MacKinnon
    F3: Stamkos, Point, JT Miller
    F4: Bertuzzi, Tavares, Seguin

    Bench:
    G: Bobrovsky
    D: Barrie, M Reilly, Heiskanen, Klingberg, Pionk, Weegar, Ekblad,
    F: Benn, Guentzel,, Labanc, Necas, Pearson
    Reserve: Datsyuk

    contemplating dropping him for Stalock. I don't even care if he gets hot for someone else. We only get three add/drops a week, on Sun and Wed, so i couldn't even cut him in anger if I wanted to!

    Dynasty/full keeper or close to that, it's a horrible idea. One year, might work, but I doubt it.

    Stalock is a tandem guy who's been average this year. Bobrovsky's been bad, but you'd be cutting a much more talented goalie for a guy who's a proven average to below-average NHL goalie with backup workload that has a career high in games this year.
