    Default which one goalie for 1/4 final round of 16

    Hi guys, need some help here. One goalie for this round. I don't have a clue although I'm leaning towards...

    ...*Talbot v. Stars.

    Others

    *Grubauer or Francouz v Yotes

    *Lehner or Fleury v Hawks
    *these guys are playing next game according to Dobber Starting Goalies.

    Appreciate all input. Thanks guys. Will REP who I can.

    Good luck to all.

    If you can wait until Vegas confirms their goalie then I would go with that.

    I think I would go with Grubauer for now because I have more confidence in COL sticking with him than I do with VGK sticking with Lehner.

    Thanks hr, any idea when they "confirm". I have 2 hours left to decide. Left Wing Lock now has Fleury as projected while Dobber has Lehner.
    I guess with "time sharing" being so common now picking any one goalie is almost a crap shoot but it's the same
    issue for all FH SC poolies.

    If you're picking for the whole round I like Grubauer both cause the Avs will win and because he has a stronger hold on starter position.
    12 team H-2-H 1 year league, daily roster changes, 3 goalie start minimum/week
    2xC, 2xRW, 2xLW, 4xD, 3xUtil, 2xG, 5 Bench
    G, A, P, PIM, PPP, SHP, GWG, SOG, Hits, W, SV%, GAA, SVs
    C: L. Draisaitl (LW), S. Aho (LW), J. Pageau, A. Henrique
    LW: E. Kane, I. Kovalchuk (RW), T. Konecky (RW)
    RW: B. Wheeler, T. Wilson, P. Buchnevich (LW), K. Fiala ( C, LW) ,
    D: K. Letang, S. Weber, M. Giordano, D. Nurse, J. Petry
    G: D. Kuemper, M. Smith, J. Gibson, A. Stalock

    SOME POOL RULES. Points only (G-1, A-1) NON-draft pool so many teams will have A LOT of the same players. 19F 4 D 2 Rook. 1/2 entry fee $ to year long pool..1/2 to H2H. H2H matches go for a week and are simple...my 25 man team vs his, most points for the week gets the $.
    Each year the Commish selects 25F and 12D high scorers who all teams are restricted from rostering.
    Each franchise gets 6 SWAPS/year...any player on roster can be swapped for any non-restricted F/D/R from ANY NHL team. INJURY RULE "IR". A hurt player can be replaced by another F/D from HIS NHL team and this is NOT considered a SWAP. Injured player can be put back on team at any time.

    Thanks Guys.
    Rep to who I could. Appreciate you taking the time.

    3 replies from members whose opinions I really respect. Grubs favoured by 2, Lehner 1. So went with Grubs. May as well go all in on Aves as finally decided to
    go with 4 Aves of my 5 skaters from the West. Team is entered...

    ...and I'm already having 2nd thoughts. This is for the SN Fantasy Hockey Pool with salary caps (I'm a Rookie at this) and minutes after I entered my team it dawned on me, almost all my skaters (6F, 4D,) are from favoured teams and If they win series in 4-5 games I'm likely screwed. I think in this format you want your goalies to Win games but skaters should be picked based on which teams are projected to have long series...Isles/Caps, Flames/Stars, Blues/Canucks. All predicted 7 game series by the Dobber Experts Panel Predictions. Oh well, Goalies can only get so many points regardless of length of series. Go Grubs and Hart. And here's hoping the Aves, VGK, Philly have at least 6 game series.

    Thanks guys.

    Is Kuemper available? Go with him!!!

    Otherwise you could go with Talbot as Dallas does not score very often

    Thanks for replying CC. It came a few hours after I had to submit my Roster though. I went with Grubauer.

    Kuemper was available but I didn't consider him as I don't think the Yotes will win 4 vs the Aves.
    Talbot..ya..got a W last night. Hopefully Grubs can get 4 of them.

    Sorry, could not Rep you.

    Completely irrelevant but here is how the goalie points ended up.

    Kuemper..2
    Talbot...5
    Lehner.....8
    Grubhauer..9

    I'm happy with Grubs.

    In the east I took Hart...so far 8 points.

    Thanks for your input guys. Appreciate it.

    Thanks. EB.
    "Nailed it!

    Hart ended up with 10 points. Grubs 9. Can't do much better than that.
    But My skaters, 6F and 4 d were like Jekyl and Hyde.
    Konecny and Weber with a point each and Krug with 2 really hurt.
    Can't have more than 1 slouch in this pool.
    So finished round one 17pts behind leader, ranked 2417 out of 34,500 participants, top 7%. Not bad.

    I have a very difficult time picking players for this Sportsnet Fantasy PlayOff pool (advertised during SC telecasts) with the salary
    caps, small rosters...6F 4D 2G, but it's fun even if I don't have a hope in hell of winning anything. On to round 2.
    My goalie picks at this time are Varlamov and Lehner. Hope they are starting.

    See you are still in the thick of it in that Dobber SC Pool. Flyers have to step it up a notch or 2 though, Stuntman
    and Horrorfan have pretty solid teams.
