    • I'm not too terribly concerned with my goalie situation. With Crawford the clear number one this year he is going to get more starts; Backstrom is always solid but not spectacular. The wild card is Pavalec. He is very talented and barring him collapsing on the ice again he could be a good option this year. I know it could use improving but its not terrible at this point. I am more worried about my RW scoring and my overall defence right now.

    • Out of all the goalie categories you listed there, you have one goalie on your team that makes it into the Top 13 in only one of the categories (Crawford - GAA). I predict with this roster that you'll finish near last in most of the goalie categories.

    • actually i diasagree with the goalie comment....
      each of these goalies are fantasy stud capable,
      crawford had great numbers last year for a rookie, and don't look at chicago to have a bad year with the core they have.....they also have some cap room to get another top 4 dman or top 6 forward with all teh cap clearing this year.....could you imagine iginla there?
      backstrom is playing on a defensive wild team that just missed the palyoffs last year and gained two solid players on the wing with heatley and setoguchi...backstrom was also an allstar a few years back
      if you are going to trade any of these guys it would be pavelec
      he's on the weakest team and he's had injury issues along with the fact that chris mason is capablen of taking his starting role.....what you could do is package him with say marc staal, or liles to get a good top 6 right wing and a back up goalie that can steal the spotlight (i.e. bernier, rask, nabokov, karlsson, ellis, neuvrith)

    • You're going to have some trouble in net. I would consider packaging a goalie/LW to update at the goaltender slot.

      Nice grab on Callahan. The NYR statisticians are known for inflating their "Hits" during home games.
