    Free Agent Wire

    My 3 goalies are Antti Niemi, Steve Mason and Ondrej Pavelec. Both Cam Ward and Niklas Backstrom are free agents, would it be beneficial to drop Pavelec for one of these? Pavelec hasn't been good at all and i know both ward and backstrom are coming back from injuries

    Also, is Mason Raymond worth picking up? Thinking of dropping Pascal Dupuis or Antoine Vermette

    • Pavelec is on a fairly bad team, so I wouldn't expect too many wins from him. I have Backstrom and have been irritated as his starting position has been usurped, but he definitely could have some value over the season. I know I would rather start him if he's actually playing vs. Pavelec. Ward is a decent goalie, but the Canes have a lot of injuries and their D isn't that great, I probably wouldn't start him either. I also have Vermette on my team, and I haven't dropped him because of he is basically the best face-off guy in the game. But barring that, and since your league doesn't have FW, then he is probably fairly expendable. Ultimately, I would drop Pavelec and pick up Ward, Backstrom isn't playing enough games, but you can play Ward when the Canes play bad teams. I would definitely pick up Raymond and prob drop Vermette or Dupuis depending on who's stats suit you more.
