    Oettinger. No Krejci, Marchand and Bergeron getting older. 36 and 33 as of now and 37 and 34 in the new year. And yes I get that neither one has shown signs of falling off a cliff (yet) in terms of production, but as players get older the idea of a big downward trend is inevitable. But a credit to elite guys, it does take longer. The fact Ullmark is also in the way. I am not sold on a couple preseason games. Linus was outstanding in Buffalo. He'll get it going.

    But it's oh so close... I do like Swayman.
    I am a hockey obsessed fiend.

    Oettinger is a RFA after this year, and he's setup to not get a lot of starts or be the incumbent starter next year, which should keep that second contract down. Plus, Bishop is lurking, but both Khudobin & Bishop contracts expire at the same time.

    Swayman has this year and next until being a RFA, and that's more time to take over the job, but he also has a guy being paid like a starter in front of him in Ullmark, and a starter trying to recover and play in Rask.

    I have both in one league, and while I'd prefer to own Oettinger due to the acquisition cost of the other parts of the combo (notably Ullmark versus Khudobin), I can't really fault someone taking Swayman. I feel there's less risk in Oettinger being a strict backup with 3 old goalies, two of whom may be done, on the team.
    10 team H2H dynasty. 33 player roster, 2 round draft. Start 1 G, 1 backup G, 6 D, 12 F arranged in 4 lines of 3. Only Goals, Assists, Save% matter. Having NHL teammates helps.

    G: Shesterkin
    Backup G:Jarry
    D: Carlson, Makar, Letang, Pionk, Fox, KMiller

    F1: Necas, JT Miller, Teravainen
    F2: Schiefele, Wheeler, MacKinnon
    F3: Stamkos, Point, Guentzel
    F4: Benn, Robertson, Seguin

    Bench: 2 empty spots for draftees
    G: (none)
    D: Heiskanen, Klingberg, Ekblad, M Reilly
    F: Bertuzzi, Boeser, Couturier, Giroux, Gurianov, Perfetti, Voracek
    Reserve: Datsyuk
