    Hey everyone, i have a question, i made the mistake of drafting Brian Elliot in my fantasy league, it was a later round pick, but still.. i thought he was going to be the Blues starter, i should have done my research on the blues before the draft.

    Semyon Varlamov is available on waivers, should i drop Elliot and pick up Varlamov?

    its a points pool, so W and shutouts are all that matter, my other goalie is MA Fleury, so im set for my main goalie.

    the other goalies available are

    Martin Brodeur
    Viktor Fasth
    Ondrej Pavelec
    Devan Dubnyk
    Evgeni Nabokov
    Ray Emery

    i think Varlamov has the most potential to play the most games and get the most Wins out of the bunch


    any suggestions is appreciated

    Yes. Varlamov is their #1. Elliott doesn't play as much.

    Definitely Varly. He will play way more games than Elliot

    I'd say either Varlamov or Dubnyk. Dubnyk will get a lot of starts, but looks rusty so far in his first few games. Varlamov has been pretty solid so far.

    Personally, I'd take Varly.

    If you have 2 other goalies that get games, then keep Elliott because his stats in 35-40 games will be really good. Varlamov won't keep his stats up.

    Elliott is most valuable if you have 2 #1s ahead of him or have Halak as well in your lineup.

    Varlamov will get more wins, also more losses if you count that.

    thanks guys, i made the switch, were only allowed 2 goalies in my league, and the only stats that count are wins and shutouts, so i had to go with Varly. he will have more chances to post the W's for me.

    i appreciate the replys
