General Message Board
This is my leagues first season playing keepers. We are allowed to keep 3 players (any position) this year and next year 4 and so on… I would like some feedback on who to keep. Obviously Crosby will be one of my keepers!
I don't agree with the 'keeping a goalie' mentality. I would keep Crosby Perry and Sharp before either of his current goalies. You would still be able to pick one of your current goalies up anyways in the first round without compromising your offence.

With only 3 keepers, there's really not much compromising. If there were only 6 or 8 teams in the league, I might go that way too, but the more teams there are in the league, the less enticing the goalie options will become. It's really all a matter of personal preference, and anticipating what the other teams will do. If you're confident Bob/Bishop(or someone similar or better) will be around when you draft, then ya, go with offense. While Bob/Bishop wouldn't be my first choice as a goalie going into next year, but they are a pretty safe choice, whereas there really should be plenty of offense in the draft.
It would be tempting to keep Crosby, Sharp, and Perry, but you should probably keep a goalie.
In which case, I would let Sharp go into the draft pool, and hope to get him back.
I'd consider Bobrovsky/Bishop to be a toss up. Both will likely get the bulk of their team's starts. Bobrovsky may have a slight edge due to being a starter longer... but Bishop has performed well, and next year Tampa will have Stamkos all year.
