Backstrom (always an injury concern and challenged by Harding)
I also have, who I feel is, one of the best back up tenders in the Game on the best team in Vokoun.
Before the start of the season (before I figured there would be a season) I picked up Hackett (after the Harding MS talk and Backstrom ankle injury) and Bachman (looked good last year behind once oft injured Lehtonen.
As the season is 3 days in and Hacket and Bachman returned to their AHL affiliates, I'm wondering if I should wait on either/both of these guys or cut ties. I'm a little iffy with my 3 #1's, although hope they will assume their usual load and consistency. But with these guys working in the minors, they're serving me no purpose here.
Do I make a move (perhaps pick up a Turris/McDonald/Erat/Kadri Holmqvist ...all currently available) or stand pat expecting Bachman to get the call up and resume his back up role (Hackett would require an injury which those 2 are quite capable of).
Others potential goalie replacements are:
I don't envision any of these guys to be keepers at years end (unless a starting role is likely)?
I suspect you can drop them without much worry of anyone picking them up as their fantasy value is effectively nil at the moment. And as you note, there are valid options out there on FA that you could pick up that would help your team NOW so the best move is probably to do that but to keep a very careful eye on those starters because they certainly have that potential to get injured.
I dunno, I don't use twitter myself but I know GMs who swear by it for fantasy news...if you can find a reliable source in MIN and DAL you can get notified the minute someone gets hurt and grab the guy off FA before anyone else does
Thats me on the street with a violin under my chin, playing with a grin, singing gibberish.
