    Fleury and Linback down and out: Help!

    Alright so my 2 best goalies are out: Linback and Fleury
    Now I have Scrivens and Holtby,,,

    Should I drop Scrivens for Emery? Also, Carolina's back up is available too.
    Which back up goalies going to get the most starts?
    Because Hiller and Holtby are my only guys that will be starting right now.
    Thanks!

    • If your league lets you make a fair amount of moves in a given week, I'd consider just swapping one of your goalies in & out as you need them. I don't know your league categories, but I had to do that in my league last year, and I managed to make it work...ended up winning the league, too, tho mostly due to my foward/defensemen.

      As far as Scrivens for Emery...I'd do it if you can spare the move; both are sharing the crease time with their respective starters, but CHI has been doing better overall in the goals against category. Hiller, if you need someone for tonight, as he's supposed to get the start; he still shares a lot of crease time with Fasth, but they seem to be playing him more regularly as of late.

      I'd definitely stay away from Carolina, at either rate. Carolina's a losing team, and now they're playing with their 3rd & 4th goalies; Peters has let in 4 goals in each of his last 2 starts & Muse has yet to play in the NHL.
