Per player, he's the second highest on my team after Stamkos, but as a position goalies account for the lowest number of points by far (other than Util, unless I decided to play Stamkos there all season).
Obviously, I want to try and fill the position every night, so I think having more than one goaltender is a good idea, but having four like I do is definitely overkill.
Interesting indeed, and it shows the relatively low value a second goalie would have, unless you are lucky on having two goalies that don't conflict that often. Perhaps worth enquiring to that manager whether he's interested in a second goalie, such as Anderson? I would gather that in a league of this setup it comes down to manager strategy on the importance of goaltending so I would be prepared for a rejection or a back end forward. As Reimer is not guaranteed to be the starter (I think, but can be corrected) so probably has very little value in this league and could safely be dropped for a skater. What other goalies are available on FA?
