Depth in goal -- who would you trade?
It's been a looong time since I've posted anything here because I've been pretty busy setting up my new business. I've been hanging around and reading and I still buy the Dobber Fantasy Guide and Prospects Guide, so I've been trying to stay in the loop.
I'm at a crossroads and I'd like to hear some thoughts on goalies. I am in a keeper league (details in signature) and right now I am in second-place in the standings. My two starting goalies are Brodeur and Lindback and they're getting me 29 of a possible 44 points. Biggest area for improvement is the combo, which combines wins, GAA and Sv%.
I've got Holtby and Bobrovsky on the bench and once they pass the 585 mark in minutes played, it means that I won't be able to protect them in the minors going into next season. That means that I will have to trade two of them between now and the start of next season.
Obviously, it makes more sense to trade them during this season to get assets that will help me win and that's my plan.
I'm pondering these options:
1) Trading two of my goalies for one better goalie and trading one goalie for offensive help;
2) Trading two of my goalies for offensive help;
3) Also considering keeping a third goalie in case of injury.
Of my four goalies, I have a pretty good idea who will help me the most this year and I rank them this way:
What about long-term though? Anybody see Holtby or Bob moving up in that pecking order this year? Would you sell high on Brodeur anticipating he might get hurt again or retire after next season?
