    For me yes, -- Vasi will have better stats than Holtby and Pastrnak will be better or equal to Hall

    Holtby had a poor season by his standards, and Vas is superior in all areas of fantasy, so it comes down to how your points system works. You have 4 goalie categories, and 6 player categories. That means what? Hall/Holtby produce more that Pastrnak and Vasilevskiy.

    For me the difference is Hall......unlike the above opinion I like Hall in all areas of fantasy. I don't know what I am seeing in Pastrnak to pick him over Hall.

    While I agree if you directly compare last years results directly Hall would be the more valuable player. Look at it over a number of years and Pastrnak is the more consistent player. Looking at Halls career shooting percentage and PP output I would be bet on Hall regressing. Pastrnak just turned 22 with room to improve. From that perspective I take vasi/pastrnak as being the safe play where I know both will perform.

    Also -- 4 out of 10 categories is 40%. That 40% falls on 2/3 players... this puts a lot of value on a few players (your goalies). Where the 60% falls on many players 10-20 skaters.

    Therefore, if Holtby has another poor season, you're going to feel it a lot more than losing out on a few skater peripherals every week, as long as you drafted properly.

    My 2 cents.

    Vasilevskiy and Pastrnak for me. I don't think it's that close to be honest.

    Holtby had a poor regular season(by his standards) then went on a run and won the cup lol

    34 Wins and 16 losses was a bad year for Holtby(his GAA and save% were poor with 0 Shutouts).

    That bad year is still above most goaltenders in the league AND the previous 3 years he had 41-48 wins, a 2.02-2.22 GAA and 92.2%-92.9% sv and he had 9, then 3, then 9 shutouts.


    Usually, Holtby is a safe pick every year for top 5 goalie and that kind of consistency makes me feel safer. I have him in 2 keeper leagues and while he was "Not good" last year, he also wasn't bad. Only 6 goalies in the league had more wins than him.

    Tampa looks to be a destroyer moving forward and Vasi was a big part of that. But I HATE grabbing a guy based off of 1 good fantasy year.

    In recent memory.

    Varlamov looked to be a nuclear beast 1 year, then was league worst the next.

    Cam Talbot was a workhorse on an up and coming McDavid lead Oilers team then stuttered badly the next year, etc

    Matt Murray won a cup and ousted Fleury as #1 goalie. On a strong team he looked invincible. But he had a bad year last year on a strong team after 1 good year. but good old consistent Fleury went to a new team and was a world beater(Concussions aside)
