    Default M Blackwood?? Devils??

    Do the improvements the Devils made on D (Hamilton/Graves), plus up and comers like Hughes, Sharigovich and Ty Smith, make this a team that can compete in the Metro?

    And if so, does M Blackwood get a boost to his stock. Does Bernier worry y’all? Can MB get back in track and be worth rostering over any of my other goalies in my signature?

    As long as Rask doesn't sign, Blackwood is 4th on your goalie depth chart. Even if he does I expect Bernier to split similar to what Rask/Ullmark will split.

    NJ is definitely improved but I think they're a year or two away in that division.

    I was targeting Blackwood until the Bernier signing. COVID really screwed the kid, and management (like management in many other non-sports and entertainment business) has trouble recognizing a world pandemic as a reason for performance to take a hit. I'd love him for you if not for the Bernier signing... It basically means 1A/1B. I'm tired of collecting tadem goalies, so IMHO, your Gs go 1. Shesty, 2. Hart, 3. Ullmark (until they sign Rask, or until Swayman steals the show during fantasy playoffs when you need him most), 4. Blackwood as a 1A and not a bonafide #1 anymore on a rebuidling team in a tough division. And yet I still think Blackwood will be surprisingly higher at the ned of the year in fantasy ranks... he's done this before on a way crappier version of NJ.
    10 Team H2H Points (Keep 1C, 2W, 2D, 1G, & 1 non-goalie):
    G,A,+/-, PIM, PPG, SHG, GWG, OTG, FWs, Hits, Blks, Maj, Mis, (bonus scoring for D-men makes them comparable to Wing)
    Wins, Saves, GA, Shutouts

    18 Man Roster (2 IR slots) Daily Start: 2C, 4W, 4D, 2G

    C: Crosby, Zibanejad, Horvat, Hertl
    W: Pastrnak, M. Tkachuk, Svechnikov, Konecny, Anderson
    D: Carlson, Makar, Pietrangelo, Ellis, Dumba
    G: Shesterkin, Lehner, Demko, Petersen, Francouz (IR)

    Agree with this. Bernier will see starts, NJ will be better (wildcard contender maybe) but not a playoff lock at this point

    Yes Blackwood is 4th on your depth chart. But NJ should be an improved team and Bernier doesn’t worry me for the near future. In 2 years or so we will be talking about a very good team with solid goaltending provided by Blackwood. It’s a matter of time. Also you do have 3 better goalies right now tho.
