With some injuries I have a bench spot to add a goalie for the next week or so (until Doughty gets back). I am in a dynasty league with W, GAA, SV% and SO as the stats and my current goalies are Reimer, Neuvirth, Dudnyk and Lindback. Not all great plays for this year but I'm carrying four becuase I think they all have bright futures for various reasons and 4 of the leagues 10 stat cats are dedicated to goalies (way to much in my opinion but that is another issue).
Thus it creates the need in my opinion to dedicate a large precentage of the leagues bench spots to goaltending prospects in hopes that some if not all of these guys will develope into starting studs. In the meantime I have to pick up starts where I can and guys getting placed on the IR allows me to do just that.
I spot started Garon last night and will be doing so with Hedberg tonight. As Hedberg is garunteed the starts for the next 7-10 days I am thinking that I will just hold on to him, but with Garon's strong play and Rolston struggles I also feel that Garon might be worth the add because of his potential to play more games overall. Lets face it, even if Rollie was playing well Garon was getting 30 starts.
So whats the play? Hold Hedberg and play him for the next week or add Garon and hope that he plays himself into remaining roster worthy?
As a side note, does anyone think that trading Neuvirth for Braden Schenn is a worth while deal. I don;t personally due to the heavily weighted goalie stats but am interested as to whether anyone thinks Schenn is worth it.
