    Post Re: Run 3 stable goalies in standard 1year H2H league with 2 G slots ?

    Thanks all for coming back to this thread and reading my analysis I am happy you liked it and it wasnt a waste.
    It helped me to decide, that I want to trade 1 of my goalie to keep just 2 permanent goalies. Choosing which one to trade will be quite difficult task.
    And it will be even harder, because I plan to pickup Francouz as 4th goalie.
    EDIT: New thread about which goalie I should trade is here.

    Some replies to you:

    That was my approach every year (Draft Vasil ASAP). But this year I drafted as last (12/12) so every elite skater and Vasil were gone. So I drafted (Lehner, Hedman, Hellebuyck, Crosby) in first rounds. Talbot was just a too good free pickup in 1st Week and I kept him.

I really didnt plan on Markstrom playing straight bananas to start the season but so far i haven't lost GAA or SV% yet. I don't know what i'm going to do if/when Rask comes back so that could be interesting.
    Markstrom is a new Vasil Swayman may go to AHL after Rask returns, be prepared for that.

    With that being said, i do like the goalies you have and would probably hold for now.
    I get your plan on how to make playoffs, but I am now 11/12 in our league. So every won category every week is a crucial for me. I had to upgrade my forwards, I need that extra slot. And I need to trade for better forward. Means I have to trade 1 of my goalie, I was not crushing those goalie stas anyway. I will hold only to analyse which goalie i should trade and for who, then I will proceed.

    3rd occasionally goalie will be streamer for short periods (days). Sorokin was already picked up (but could be dropped again as Islanders are mess). I will trade 1 goalie, even under priced, to make a roster space. But it's the biggest question, who is the odd goalie out. I had to make deep analysis and read some fortune cookies together with purchasing a crystall ball.

    Good point about injury. I think I can fix the injured goalie with an IR slots and/or free pick ups/trade. I had to reduce goalies now. See the reasons above.

    Yeah, I am already looking for playoff calendar now and doing trades and pickups in line with the calendar to upgrade my core team. If I make playoffs I want to be prepared. But thanks for pointing that out, many GMs are forgetting this.

    Tnx for advice. I will more likely open 2-3 stream spots to maximise 5 free pick ups every week (even for playoffs) regarding the calendar.

    yeah, this is my plan. Upgrade and make roster space.

    thanks a lot. Hope it helped also other Dobber GMs.

    I still welcome here other GMs who want to discuss their goalie situation in standad 1year H2H league.
    Always meant this thread to be generic. I am very glad some of you posted your approach and thoughts.

    I may come back here in before playoffs, how my situation with goalies went (Aftermath report )
