      Personally I think you should stay put right now.
      Lehtonen is a starter, and probably won't loose his job to Hedberg.
      Budaj should be the starter in Colorado, and not Theodore.
      But, he is doing decent so that is still a question mark.
      When Fleury is healthy again, most likely Pittsburgh will give him every oppurtuinity to prove he is #1 over Conklin.
      That's what they did in Boston.
      Auld was stealing the show, but when Tim Thomas was healthy again, they gave him his starter role back.
      And if your thinking of players to drop...my choices would be Shanahan, Sharp, Michalek, or Hudler.
      All other players I believe are producing consistently.
      Hudler could be replaced if you think you made a mistake down the road, Shanny is old, Sharp is decent, and Michalek is a 2 position player....always a plus.
      So choice is up to you.
      Grab Fleury though when he's closer to return for Budaj or Lehtonen.
      Hossa will most likely be traded soon which will make Atlanta a weaker team.

    • If your league allows IR spots drop Kostitsyn and grab Fluery and stash him on the IR and then you can pick up another goalie ... If not you should be grabbing Josh Harding

    • Is GARON (Goalie) available in your league??? If so grab him.

    • I would take Harding he is 3 and 1 over the past few weeks and Backstrom has been struggling. Lemaire has been known to go with the hot hand so Harding could be the new number one. If Fleury was not hurt I would have said him, but than Conklin is on fire so he may not have the number one when he returns.

      My first thought was to drop Sharp as I have him to he has been horrid over the last 8 but he scored last night and if Havalt is healthy they are a nice one two punch and hope toews comes back sooner rather than later. I dropped Sharp to my bench but only bc I have Brad Boyes in the waiting who has picked it up again. I would drop Shanahan, if memory serves he is hurt right now anyway. You can always pick him back up later plus there are better options out on wavier wire I am sure. I had him at the start of the season and though I am a huge rangers fan had to drop him and I think I dropped him for sharp go figure.

    • Obtain
      roloson
      dump salami
      even if he returns
      its 4 weeks away
      and he'll never regain last years form
      his #'s last year were a 5 year high
      roloson will be starting for edmonton within a week of returning

    • I'd drop Selanne, and add Fleury and place him on my IR slot. This gives you another free slot then I would consider adding Theodore. Watching goaliepost.com should give you Colorado's starter all the time and when Fleury comes back from injury and has proven that he is their starter again, I would drop the non-starter in Colorado and you would have three starters on your team...

    • first, get Fleury and put him on IR right away because he is coming back in about 2 weeks and will be your best goalie for the rest of the season.

      Second get Harding for now and play him until Fleury is back. If you have a conflict after checking out http://goaliepost.com/ play Harding, Lehtonen and then Budaj in that order of preference.

      In odred to accomplish the IR move and then Harding add, drop Hudler.

    • harding is your man...and drop selanne for F sake what is wrong with you...
