    PICK THE BEST GOALIE CHOICE

    I'm in a keeper league and our draft is coming up, out of these 3 goalie who would be the best choice?

    Tim Thomas Boston
    Nikloas Backstrom Minnesta
    Simeon Varlamov Washington

    Thomas and Backstrom are great goaltender but Varlamov is so young and on a great team.
    I would think Varlomov is the best choice.
    What do you think?

    • thomas is the oldest of the 3 and will probly play 55-60games
      backstrom id say is your best choice he should play more than 60 and has more years left too play than thomas
      varlamov will probly split 50/50 this year

    • thomas is probably the best choice since he will be playing more this season, hopefully. Reports from preseason say that Theodore will be the starting netminder out of the gate. Some people say that the fact its theodore's contract year will play a factor in his performance and ultimately how he is utilized this year, though those are probably more speculation. I would say that if you are really big on Varlamov, take him during the draft he should be available mid round, reach for him if you think the potential is there.

    • Thomas. Read somewhere that the Caps coach is goin play Theodore more again this season.
