Fantasy Hockey Roundtable: Goalie Throwdown
This week’s Fantasy Hockey Roundtable asked “Which goaltending battle has been the most intriguing so far this season?”
Here’s what we had to say:
I’ve been most interested in the Islander goalie situation, where you have both Martin Biron and Dwayne Roloson putting up strong numbers.
The fascinating thing is that despite their statistical similarities (Roloson has a 2.80 GAA and .920 save percentage; Biron has a 2.78 GAA and .910 save percentage), Roloson is 8-2-5 and Biron is 2-8-2.
We’re talking similar numbers by older goalies, both playing behind the same team, yet their won-loss records are like night and day.
And of course, this goalie battle will only get more interesting if presumable franchise goalie Rick DiPietro returns in mid-December as most recently reported.
The Islanders, who had almost no goaltending last season, could find themselves with three strong goalies.
It’s feast or famine in the nets on Long Island.
