My brother and I were discussing our Keeper fantasy league. He has Turco, and Henrik Lundqvist. He has to drop one of them, and we were discussing the emergence of Smith and how that could effect Turco and his playing time vs Henrik and ....Well......Nobody (Rookie Montoya or Valliquette)
Turco is a great goalie, and Smith has proved he was more than capable when called upon. My brother is looking into the future of who he should keep for the next few seasons. With Smith's play last season, it is hard for me to think he will not take a bunch of games from Turco (maybe 20 or more) whereas Henrik will get 70+ starts but is more inconsistent than Marty. Turco is 33 or so and Lundqvist is @26.
Taking away Homer Bias (believe me just the discussion of a Rag erks me) and give me an honest choice. Would you keep Turco or Lundqvist in this situation.
I was actually going to ask if Smith could take starting reigns in a few years, but Turco is signed for 3 more years while smith has 2.
