    Default When you sit a goalie....

    ...Do you root for a blowout loss to justify your decision or are you ok with a win because it means he might be getting hot?

    Definitely root for a blowout. But I don't bench goalies too often.

    I don't root at all either way. If he does well then I feel it bodes well for his future performance. Plus, his value goes up if he is playing well. If he has a poor game I feel I dodged a bullet.

    I want them to prove me wrong and play well. But a part of me kind of prefers they lose the game despite their efforts lol. Regardless, I would prefer them to not suck and give me faith in them again.

    I root for a win if it's a team I root for. If it's a team I hate, I will root for a loss.

    Otherwise, I don't care much, would generally prefer no injury.

    Had the opposite tonight...didn't think Ullmark would start so I didn't bench him...then it's just a matter of holding your breath the whole night.

    I'm sitting Korpisalo and Bob in my roto league tonight. I don't think I'm rooting for a blowout because I need them to turn it around.

    But to answer the question above, I prefer if my benched goalie performs well so I have more confidence to start in the future.
