    Urgent!! Need help for draft

    I agree with the above. Backstrom will give a better save %, low GA, even with the change of coaching. The D would have to be totally ineffective for Backstrom's numbers to falter beyond the mainstream average level.

    • Thanks guys.

      It was a very tough decision, but I ended up taking Carey Price. The main reason was that this is a dynasty keeper league and Price has 9 years on Backstrom, so if Price reaches his expected potential, I would have him for a lot longer.

      Backstrom is definitely the guy for right now, but I was thinking longer term.

      I definitely debated the decision back and forth a lot, but ultimately the age factor and the hope that Jacques Martin's defensive coaching style might help his stats influenced my decision to choose Price.

      Time will tell if it was the right choice. It was definitly a tough one.

      Thanks again.
