    Default Who to drop when Ullmark returns?

    12-team roto, goalie categories are W, GAA and SV%. Start two per day.

    I got shafted by autodraft so I've been making the most with what I have, often turning to the wire for the hot hand. It's been working extremely well so far given the lack of name value in my crease. With 2/3 categories being averages I'm going with quality starts over bulk.

    Current goalies:
    Georgiev (Shesterkin might play tomorrow)
    Markstrom (out for now but worth keeping)
    Stalock (has been outstanding)
    Petersen (just picked him up, been good since call-up to Kings)
    Allen (also just picked him up, targeting wins when he plays)
    Ullmark (on my IR, returning soon)

    My gut says drop Georgiev who has been so good for me this year. But it seems his time might be up. What say you?

    Note: I am aware it's weird to be trusting Buffalo and LA for quality starts...

    Def Georgiev or Allen just because he is the clear cut #2. Once Igor is back the Rangers will ride his a*s now only two points removed from a wild card position.

    My thinking with Allen is he's a higher win % guy and .922 on the season. There's a b2b coming up so I'll be using him there. At least that's the plan. This goalie situation has been a pain in the ass all year! lol

    Why not simply Markstrom to the IR in his place?

    We have IR, not IR+. Markstrom is listed as OUT.

    Georgiev or Petersen. If Shesty is back soon then Georgiev probably won't get you as many starts (assuming the Kings go with close to a split to close out the year) - so I think the Bulgarian is the drop.

    Ok. I thought he had surgery, which would've meant he was on IR.

    That's not at all how it works. Teams put players on IR to clear a roster spot. If they're not calling anyone up then there's no need for IR.

    I understand that, but I also figured Domingue was his replacement. I guess they are rolling with 3 goalies, and short a skater.

    Is there any chance of keeping Pettersen? If so I might drop the NYR guy. If neither guy is a keeper I think maybe Id drop Petter's son

    I think Ullmark is the next Martin Jones. That team has some of the best super superstars in the gam,e and have finally added a few complimentary pieces that seem to be fitting. When you look at their goalie situation you can see an image of a tumble weed blowing accross a hot desert scene. Hutton has had his chance- hes a backup- maybe a better than average one- but a backup- we know that now. Ukko-Pekka will take time- a LOT of time. If the team succeeds before he arrives I dont think its a guarantee they rock the boat when he arrives. Johansson is a hipster pick- yea I said it- and I meant it too! Lol- ok hes got chops but really hasnt proven anything past what Ullmark has.

    The fact is Ullmark has not been bad AND hes starting to develop that all important chemistry with a generational young Dman. I think he could be an adequate systems/first save goalie that does his best to be sticky on the puck and get by, by trusting his dmen to take out the trash. I think he'll get ever increasing goal support from a scintillating team on the rise. Has he been fantastic? No. I dont however, think hes lost a lot of games on his own either- and that right there might just be the key to his tenure in Buffalo. As the team improves all he has to do is give his team a chance to win each night. He could "Martin Jones" his way into prominence. I think his time this year is a leg up as familiarity with that core could be his meal ticket.

    I thought it might be Hutton. I was wrong.

    I love me some Ukko-Pekka. Some Ukko-Pekka gon take tiiiii- iiiii-iiii-ime (yes it is).

    Johansson is a pick thats so out there no one holds it agaionst you if you hit and youre a genius if it hits- lol!

    Ullmark hits the mark. I know hes a decidedly "meh" option now- but I believe his true upside isnt in being an elite gamebreaker in his own right. I think its one part being in the right time in the right place, one part having enough talent to provide first stop stability, and one part is proximity to an absolutely elite generational defensman...

    Georgiev dropped. Thanks for playing!

    This is a keep-4 league so none of this has any keeper implications. I'm just looking to continue overachieving in goalie categories the rest of the way.

    Read the first post in the thread. Autodraft owned me. I made the most of a really bad situation and if the season ends today I win the pool.
