I'll see if I can get anything for Anderson... if not, I'll roll with 3 tenders for now and hope to capitalize on an injury or something if the season ever starts!
Another thing I've noticed is that you have ten bench slots! I wonder how often you will use those players, especially if we have a shortened, condensed schedule. With that in mind, I wonder if a third goalie might actually (marginally) help you more than a second/third bench skater per position, whom you may only use once (if at all) per week. That being said, with a condensed schedule, you may not use Anderson much as well, but like you said, could be good insurance or even trade bait later on if other managers have injuries.
Have you ever used/seen the 'same night tool' that has been shared on this site? If not, do a search and you'll find it easily. Essentially, it identifies conflicts between players in a specific position depending on who you start and how many are on your bench. If we do have a shortened season, once the schedule is decided I would guess that the SNT owner will update it. Could be very useful if you are keeping Anderson to see how often he'll conflict with your top two goalies.
