    Bargain Bin Goaltenders

    12 team, H2H, standard settings.

    I had Brodeur, Rinne and Quick but recently traded away Quick and Sharp for Kane and S. Niedermayer (steal!) so I'm looking to add another tender.

    For now, I have Howard replacing Quick. This is going to sound weird, but I have a pet peeve of having two goalies from the same division (NSH and DET are both in Central and face off against each other too often, drives me nuts).

    Here are some of my options in the FA pool:
    Smith
    Biron
    Giguere
    Rask
    Niemi
    di Pietro (IR)

    Should I stick with Howard who is so so but plays for a good team, or take my chances with a better goalie who plays on a so so team? I'm thinking that Smith and Biron might get more starts than Howard, and I have a feeling that Rask will push Thomas as well. Also, Niittymaki won't keep up this pace, I have a feeling Smith will claim this spot back and TB is doing pretty decent now.

    Thoughts?
