    goalie timeshares- opinions?

    Hey everyone, I want to see what everyone thinks of the goaltending jobs that are "up in the air" right now.
    for me its like this- Rinne wins over ellis, Hiller wins over Giggy, Niemi pushes Huet, Theo wins over Varlamov, Roloson keeps it until DiPi is back.

    • I just picked up Theodore, I think he will end up taking the #1 in Wash. Varlomov has struggled but I think the 'hype' has gotten him such a high rating, only time will tell. hiller of Giggy I have to agree there too. Ellis CAN be solid, was very lackluster last year and never really rebounded once Pecker started playing great. I see that one being a battle...

    • Nashville is rotating Ellis and Rinne. Ellis did great 2 seasons ago, but Rinne won over last year. Ellis outperformed Rinne in the pre-season so he's got the slight edge again, but right now they are literally splitting starts.

      I think Giguere will win over Hiller, and will play at least 50 games. Hiller wouldn't be a bad 3rd option, but I wouldn't count on him as one of my two top goalies.

      Not sure about Varlamov. Theodore has the starting role for now, but he's on a short leash.

      Huet will be the clear starter in Chicago, but Niemi will push for playing time.

    • no thoughts? lol.
