    Niklas Backstrom (G)
    Cristobal Huet (G)
    Ty Conklin (G)

    H2H League, 14 Teams
    G, A +/-, PIM, PPP, SHP, GWG, SOG
    W, GAA, SV%, SHO (Requires 3 Goalie Appearances)

    Right now, I feel I have a fair strong roster with the exception of Lucic, and my goaltending situation. While Backstrom and the Wild have been doing very well, Huet has only been playing half the games and Conklin.. well let's just say Detriot's defense is terrible right now. I'm also very unsure of Nicklas Backstrom (C) and Vaclav Prospal (LW). I know my bench players arn't the greatest either, but that's just my bench :)

    So any comments on my team, where I should look to improve and such. Note that this is a 14 team league, so the free agent pool is very thin for talent.

    • lucic might not be as bad as u think because he is playing along side marc savard and phil kessel for now (dunno how long that will last though). I dont think your goalie trip is that bad given khabibulin is most likely traded sooner than later and conkin good for backup goalie wins, but i could see the three hitting some rough patches every now and then. Also im not sold yet that backstrom (caps) will be a bust this hense since Ovech himself hasnt really been playing yet, but if u dont want to gamble trade him like the previous post advises.

    • I would try to trade off Backstrom and Prospal for a reliable backup goalie, you have Backstrom from the Wild which is great, but try and land a good starter for his team, since your FA is thin you say try and find a goalie like MacDonald, Raycroft/Budaj, Mason, Smith, Niittimaki, Lehtonen, or try trading Backstrom, Prospal, Lucic for someone like Thomas, Garon, or Theodore
