Between my 1 first and 2nd pick (1-20), 9 goalies were selected and although I'm happy with Fleury, I was looking for a better tandem than he and Budaj and I shoped my pick 2nd and 3rd for every other 2nd and 3rd in the draft to no luck.

It's worth noting that, no, I'm not a Penguins fan.. but I was faced with the 1rst overall selection which is automatically Crosby and for my next two picks I was in need of a goaltender badly and Malkin had fallen far enough to allow me to pick him up.

What do you think?
Should I look into improving my tandem?
Ever since may first season of fantasy hockey, I've realized that you don't need to draft two elite goaltenders.
I started off last year with Vokoun and Ward and ended up transforming it to Vokoun / Nabokov / Backstrom by the time the playoffs came around without having to give up any players to trade.

I think I can depend on my goaltending for at least a while and if all fails, I'll deal one of my elite forwards for one.

Gimme all your opinions.
