I owe Backstrom for holding my goaltending together in my keeper while Lehtonen and Anderson have been out.
I think Holtby will be pretty good the rest of the season. He'll probably be somewhat streaky but he's got elite upside IMO and I think he can handle the mental ups and downs of the NHL.
Bryz just got dropped and if he clears waivers I'm thinking of dropping both ward and varly and picking up bryz and backstrom. Not sure if that is wide or not. Holtby is available and looks like Washington is hitting their stride finally
