    Default Rank ‘me - Best Goalies to start a dynasty fantasy team

    I will preface this with - goalies are voodoo (I am excluding Vasi and Helle from the list).....however, how would you rank the following young goalies to start a H2H points 32-team dynasty fantasy team(Cats are GA = -1, OL+SOL = 1.75, SV = 0.2, SHO = 5 and W = 3.5):

    Carter Hart
    Jordan Binnington
    Igor Shesterkin
    Juuse Saros
    Elvis Merzlinkins
    Mackenzie Blackwood
    Ilya Samsonov
    Ilya Sororkin
    John Gibson

    Thanks very much and will REP where I can. If there is anyone missing from the list, please include them. I appreciate all the knowledge on this site!

    Carter Hart - young goalie on an up and coming team
    Igor Shesterkin - young goalie on an up and coming team
    Ilya Sorokin - AS long as he makes it there while Trotz and the current system are in place.
    John Gibson - young goalie and Anaheim has to get better sometime
    Jordan Binnington - Blues are still good... but could be on the downswing. Can they keep Pietrangelo
    Ilya Samsonov/Jusse Saros - These guys are getting the starting goalie gig at an inopportune time as they are teams I expect to see on the downswing.
    Blackwood - I just don't think New Jersey has the makeup to be competitive in the near future.
    Merzlinkins - Korpisalo is also young and in competition for the gig. so the battle is something I wanna avoid.

    Hart and Shesterkin are the top two young goalies out there and you will find most will say one or the other. If you read this thread, you'll find varying opinions on both and who some folks prefer.

    https://forums.dobbersports.com/show...ght=Shesterkin

    For me, from this list, my group would go like:

    Sheshterkin
    Hart
    Samsonov
    Binnington
    Gibson
    Saros
    Merzlikins
    Sorokin
    Blackwood

    Sorokin is still a couple years away from possibly stealing away the crease so he slides down my list for now.
    10 Team, Points Only, Cash League

    25 Man Roster (no position), top 20 point getters count at end of month
    Keep 20/25 at seasons end, Cut 5 to FA for redrafting
    Goalie points W=2pt L=-1pt SHO=2pt

    Stamkos, Tavares, Eichel, Couture, Wheeler, Lee, Gusev, RThomas, Kucherov, Nugent-Hopkins, Burns, Zuccarello, Fabbri, JSchwartz, KPalmieri, KConnor, Necas, Yandle, Point, Konecny, TBertuzzi, NSchmaltz, Vrana

    G- Vasilevskiy, Bobrovsky

    I really don't like what I saw from Binnington this season and especially in the playoffs. I've read a few things that suggest with his larger sample size now, he's an average if not slightly below average goalie.

    Really these 2 are the top by a decent margin:

    Hart
    Shesterkin

    Then something like:

    Samsonov
    Gibson
    Saros
    Sorokin (will take a little bit of time but should rise up this list to near the top after a year or two)
    Merzlikins
    Binnington
    Blackwood (great goalie but worst team by a long shot)

    Why is Hellebuyck not in this list? Was he taken already?

    He was excluded. But yes, I agree Hellebuyck and some of the other goalies that are good right now and on good teams.

    Don't always build with the young and upcoming guys, cause in dynasty drafts it seems like majority doing that. I have heard from someone on the forums that Crosby went in the 4th round of their dynasty draft this summer... so there will be value for you to get a couple championships under your belt if all the other teams focus young. When they Zig... you Zag.

    Agreed.

    My ranking would be as follows:
    Hart
    [Hellebuyck]

    Sheshterkin
    Gibson
    Samsonov
    Blackwood
    Saros

    Binnington
    Sorokin
    Merzlikins

    Rittich and Murray over (etc)Kuemper? Alex, he deserves more love than that! Or are those two draft picks actually the apocalypse?

    Sure, Toss Kuemper in there somewhere between Gibson and Korpi.

    Vasilevski
    Hellebuyck
    Hart
    Gibson
    Kuemper
    Bishop
    Markstrom
    Lehner

    Very surprised to see Ben Bishop and not Shesterkin.

    I am not a believer in Shesterkin at all. I am consistent in that.
