    I'm have a really hard time deciding whether to start Rask or Raanta. My league is very restrictive, the only way to swap from bench to active goalies after the season starts is to make a trade, or for one of your actives to get injured (IR spot, bench call up). So, whomever you decide is active before the season starts is a long-term decision.

    My goalies, of which I can only activate two before the start of the season:
    John Gibson
    Tuukka Rask
    Antti Raanta

    I feel like Gibson is a lock. If you had to pick, do you want Raanta on your active to start the season, or Rask? Whomever you pick stays for a long time, while the other's points are not counted.

    Rask. No doubt.

    He’s proven and on a very good Bruins teams. Raanta is a wildcard and so are the Coyotes. I would even go with Rask over Gibson, with Perry now injured.

    Yeah, that pushes me over the edge. I'll go Rask, Gibson. Raanta will sit on my bench as an excellent injury backup.
