Keepers: Vanek or Niemi

Traditional stats including Hits, BLKS, FO, PPP, SHP, etc

I already have the rest of my keepers picked. However I'm struggling with the last one. Goalie stats make up roughly 30-40% of the H2H stats, so that position doesn't hold the overpowering significance as it does in many other leagues. That said, it's a 14 teamer, so there's alot of people stuck with a #1 and timeshare guy, or 2 #2s, etc, etc.

Vanek or Niemi

Thoughts?

(for reference my other keepers are Tavares, Spezza and Eberle)

Goalies are always a priority for me... so I would go with Niemi. If youre not keeping any goalies... you might be left with nothing good in the end.

i'd go with Niemi. getting stuck with only 1 starter or 2 #2's sucks. 30-40 percent of the stats is still pretty significant.winning 2 or 3 goalie stats a week can make a big impact on the standings.

your forward keepers are all at least 80 point guys, so i'd take a chance and go with the sure goalie stats. Niemi will probably be among the league leaders in wins.

#1 overall. Which makes things very interesting. Mackinnon or Drouin will be there for sure.

Grab Niemi...or Rask, Rinne or Quck if available. Goalie's rule your stats.
