How much is a goalie worth?

Hey guys,

I've always been an auto drafter in the past but this year I took a crack at drafting my own team. That might have been a mistake as I kinda wound up with a weirdly unbalanced line up. In particular, I wound up with just two goalies and I only feel really good about one of them. On the other hand, I've got what I believe is a really nice collection of forwards and many of them have dual eligibility so I feel like I've got the spare parts up front to make something happen here.

So what's it take to pry a decent starting goalie away from someone and is it worth it in my situation? I'm guessing I'll have to overpay to some extent but I don't want to over overpay.

This is a single year, head-to-head league on yahoo with the following categories:

 

F/D stats  G, A, +/-, PIM, PPP, SOG, HIT
Goalie Stats W, Goals, GAA, SV%, SHO

 

And here's my line-up...

Round Pick Player Position
1. (7) Pavel Datsyuk C,LW
2. (18) Ilya Kovalchuk LW,RW
3. (31) Marc-Andre Fleury G
4. (42) Drew Doughty D
5. (55) Ryane Clowe LW,RW
6. (66) Dustin Brown LW,RW
7. (79) Mike Richards C
8. (90) Niklas Kronwall D
9. (103) Brandon Dubinsky C,LW
10. (114) Paul Stastny C
11. (127) Semyon Varlamov G
12. (138) Mikhail Grabovski C
13. (151) Victor Hedman D
14. (162) Marek Zidlicky D
15. (175) Brian Gionta RW
16. (186) Cal Clutterbuck RW
17. (199) Nikolai Kulemin LW

 

 Like I mentioned earlier, this was my first draft attempt so I'd be happy to hear your general comments too.

Thanks guys!
