    Default Delia or Lankinen

    Which has more value?

    Delia has NHL experience and has been the best G prospect in the pipeline for a while now

    Lankinen looked good in Sweden and alright in the AHL. I haven't heard much talk about Lankinen really. Somone said he's the goalie of the future in another thread, but he's hardly been mentioned after searching the forums

    Of course theres a good chance they sign a cheap vet G, but if they do who do you think will be the backup / 1B?

    Delia is likely ahead of Lankinen on the depth chart so I would guess Delia gets the back up job after the Blackhawks sign someone this weekend. Lankinen is also waiver exempt for next season while Delia is not. Not sure if either of them have much value in fantasy leagues.

    Delia is the guy you want here.

    Chicago screwed up badly dealing Lehner, and Delia is the best goalie they have right now. I'm hoping they bring in a vet that's going to leave the door open for him to take the job away.
    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

    Is neither an option? Neither has concrete NHL experience. Delia struggled in his NHL games. He did better in the AHL but nut spectacular. Lankinen is completely unproven. Subban if they resign him...... Ummm.... No.

    Factor in an aging defense they have done little to improve to support any goalie, and it's a recipe for disaster. They will have to rely on outscoring opponents. Not an ideal situation for a goalie from a fantasy perspective.

    Delia/Lankinen would be much better suited in a backup role for an entire season before being given the reigns on a starting job imo.

    I agree. I don't really want either of these guys. If it is a 1-year league I wouldn't draft either.
