    3rd keeper should be...

    So getting back to your original question, Kipper or Doughty? The guy to keep is Doughty. Now if you're wondering about trading him away, think again. Rask is a great young goalie in the B system, but It's highly likely the guy who wants to trade him to you has some hard decisions to make and is highly considering letting him go into the draft, but he figured he'd try trading him to you for Doughty as an upgrade instead. Don't do it, you may find Rask available in the draft. ;)

    Odds are at least half of the teams your playing against will have kept a goalie especially if they have a top tier guy so they won't be drafting one in the 1st or 2nd. Depending on where you are in the draft, odds are you'll get a quality starter with your first pick or second, probably one better than Kipper. I'm a Kipper fan, but it's no secret his stats have declined every year for the last 4 or so and Calgary isn't one of those teams expected to do anything. If you can, try to snag a young guy like Howard in Detroit or Bernier in LA with your 2nd pick, freeing you up for another big overall stat producing skater with your 1st.
