Play it safe with Tristan Jarry or take a chance on Ilya Sorokin?

    Who would you keep in a fantasy hockey league?

    Tristan Jarry who is already in North America and should see a few games this season. (Matt Murray doesn't seem too durable.)

    or

    Ilya Sorokin who could be an awesome starter, but also may never play in the NHL.

    Tough one...

    Who are your current goalies? That sways my vote, but I voted Sorokin mostly based on potential and Murray blocking Jarry.

    Rask and Quick... in their 30s now, but still solid.

    Sorokin...he should be in the NHL next year after Halak contract expires and is the better goalie.

    How is Jarry a safe one? He has Murray blocking him which stalls his developmentca lot

    Jarry is in North America and is one of the top 30 ranked players not in the NHL via a few media lists. Sorokin is ranked higher, but there's a risk he may stay in Russia.

    Ya but there's a risk Jarry won't be a starter until he leaves Pittsburgh. I'd take a gamble on someone without much competition and ranked higher over a guy who has arguably the best goalie under the age of 25 on the team
