    Default Drop Varlamov or Ullmark for Merzlikins?

    My goalies are Ullmark, Sorokin and Varlamov. Merzlikins was dropped (before his shutout tonight).

    I was excited at the start of the year to own the Islander tandem, but the way things are going I think I might be better off with Merzlikins and dropping Varly. I could also drop Ullmark, or I could just keep what I have. What would your play be here? Thanks in advance!

    2 goalie roster spots, minimum 3 starts/week. Re-draft league.

    I wouldn't drop Ullmark. Only reason Swayman got the Sabres game is because Linus tweaked something or he would be the Bruins commanding the starts in Boston. Unfortunately he seems to have issues with health, so maybe...

    With the Isles taking a Covid break, this makes a decent amount of sense now.
    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

    Thanks for all the responses. I ended up dropping Ullmark for Merz. I decided to hang onto Varlamov and keep the handcuff with Sorokin. Hoping after this Covid break the Isles can get things turned around.
