What's your best guess on the fantasy value of the following goalies:
Markstrom, Bishop and Lehner.
My gut is with Markstrom (as he's already the #1), but Bishop is likely to get a shot at supplanting Lindback in Tampa Bay, and Lehner could be the #1 guy with only an injury prone/plagued Anderson standing in front of him.
Florida is the weakest of the 3 teams, in my opinion, with Tampa having a great offense, and Ottawa being the best overall team.
Stat categories are wins, SV%, GAA, and SO. If you could only have one, who would it be?
I would say Lehner is the best one out of those 3. However, Anderson will be back soon, and he'll be most likely the backup, which will decrease Lehner's starting opportunities. I would say Bishop is next. Tampa's defense isn't good, but it's sure is better than Florida's. Tampa does have an explosive offense though, and it has showed ever since they fired Boucher.Until Anderson comes back, I would take Lehner. When Anderson comes back, then I would take Bishop.
Honestly it will be tough for any of them to prove any real worth. Markstrom plays for the worst team in the league, Bishop will start but Tampa's defense is near the bottom of the league, and Lehner will be the backup once Anderson returns.
