Which Rookie do I keep, who do I trade?
I am really struggling with this. I can only protect two rookies out of the following:
Bernier, Schwartz, Markstrom, Brendan Smith and Lindback
I'm need to protect Lindback I think as he is currently pencilled in as a starter and Rask is the only other legitimate starter I have. We start 2 Goalies, so I don't see that I have much choice.
I'm eliminating both Bernier and Schwartz, I just don't see them helping me at all particularly in a shortened season and bottom line, I have to rate both Markstrom and Smith as much better options for me.
So, Smith or Markstrom?
Right now, I'm leaning toward Smith. A lot of folks really love Smith and I tend to agree. He should be fantasy relevant right out of the gate this year. Markstrom, well, it's hard to turn your back on a potential franchise goalie, but, when will that happen? Right now there are a lot of obstacles in Markstrom's way.
So, maybe I've answered my own question, maybe not. What do you guys think, who stays, who goes?
