The Lightning and Bruins have been waiting around for awhile, and will probably be waiting awhile longer to play some hockey. In the meantime, David Satriano previews an Eastern Conference Final series pitting the two hottest playoff teams against each other.
David Satriano completes the Eastern Conference first-round preview with a detailed analysis of two series. Do Alex Ovechkin and the Capitals have what it takes to score on Henrik Lundqvist and the Rangers, and will the Flyers shake off their late-season slump against the Sabres?
Based on his playoff run last season with the Blackhawks, Antti Niemi is listed as David Satriano’s top-ranked playoff goalie this season with the Sharks. Find out how the other teams’ starters ranked in David’s list.
Where a team is in the standings will likely determine how it uses its goalies down the stretch. Michal Neuvirth, for instance, should be very valuable for what’s left of the regular season as the Capitals prepare for the playoffs.
With the Canucks well on their way to the President’s Trophy, Roberto Luongo now appears to be a timeshare goalie as the Canucks keep him rested for the playoffs. Cory Schneider is arguably the league’s best backup goalie, so David Satriano believes that Schneider is worth a pickup in your league.
Jonathan Quick has been one of the better starting goalie options this season, but he has been forced to split starts with prospect Jonathan Bernier down the stretch. David Satriano covers a few of the more interesting current goalie situations in his latest offering.
With the trade deadline now come and gone, we won’t have to worry about goalies switching teams any more this season. But how many starts a starting goalie receives can depend on who the backup goalie is.
Goalie-for-goalie swaps don’t occur very often, but we witnessed one last Friday. So how does the trade affect the Ottawa and Colorado goaltending situations? David Satriano provides his take, as he does each week.
The Colorado Avalanche are falling off the Western Conference map, making it difficult for fantasy owners to decide whether to start Craig Anderson. David Satriano provides his opinion of the Colorado goaltending situation, among others, in his latest installment of “The Net Effect.”
All the Islanders’ goalies in their system seem to be drinking the Rick DiPietro Kool-Aid right now, as the poor Isles are now forced to rely on their unproven sixth- and seventh-string goalies. The Isles aren’t the only team affected by goalie injuries, as David Satriano reports.
