When Do We Start Enroth?

I know I'm inviting discussion to devolve into the poor quality with which Ruff handles backups, but in a condensed season Enroth is going to have to play from time to time. Just looking at the month of February, where and when would you play him:

Feb 2: @Montreal
Feb 3: vs Florida
Feb 5: @Ottawa
Feb 7: vs Montreal
Feb 9: @NY Islanders
Feb 10: vs Boston
Feb 12: @Ottawa
Feb 15: vs Boston
Feb 17: vs Pittsburgh
Feb 19: vs Winnipeg
Feb 21: @Toronto
Feb 23: vs NY Islanders
Feb 26: @Tampa Bay
Feb 28: @Florida

How many would you give Enroth if you were making a schedule for February? Which games?

Temperatures are dropping in the mid-west but I'm not sure hell has frozen over yet. When we get confirmation there, then maybe put Enroth back in the net.


Realistically? At Ottawa on the 5th and/or 12th and at the Isles on the 9th.

I'd go two games: Feb 3 vs Florida, and Feb 9 @NY Islanders.

I think I'd throw him back in there on Sunday vs Florida. He needs to get the winless-in-12 monkey off his back, and Florida seemed to be struggling before their 3rd period rally vs Winnipeg last night. I'd also start him at NY Islanders next Saturday, because Miller has horrible career numbers against the Isles and we're in the middle of a stretch during which 8 of 10 games are against division opponents (and the two non-division games are Florida and the Isles).

This schedule would allow Miller to play 12 of 14 games, but not require him to play any back-to-backs this month.

Maybe the first game on the Island. I need more time to choke down his last start.

I'd give him the first Florida, the Isles and either the one against the Bolts or Florida again.

Pretty much.

Enroth is probably only going to get starts against teams that have little to no chance of catching the Sabres in the standings. That will obviously become clearer as we go, but that's all the ice he'll see.

So at the moment, no one?

0-9-3 in his last 12 starts.

I think the Islanders on the 9th is the only safe bet

Yeah....and that.

I think you won't seem him much until late March/April TBH. Even then, it won't be many starts unless they're somehow up in 4th or 5th.

If he gets 7 starts this year I'll be shocked.

Yes. Really. The book is out on him -- five-hole is very weak, high glove is suspect.

We could go back to 1-11-3 in his last 15 if that makes it look any different. The guy is not very good.

Had 3 starts in 3 months last year. February - March - April. Could be even less than 7.

Yep.

As much as I haven't liked Ruff's handling of backup goalies generally, what can he really do here? Enroth just isn't any good.

Suggested dates bolded.

Hopefully get him off the schneid with Florida, save Miller for Boston in that back to back, then give Miller a nice 5 day rest after playing 6 games in 11 nights. It won't happen, but that would be my schedule for Enroth. Keeps him game ready, and keeps Miller fresh as the season drags on.

Imagine what that would look like if the Sabres didn't prefer playing in front of him?


I continue to underestimate Ruff on this, but I can't believe Miller starts the Florida game on Sunday.

Never?
Florida game makes sense but throwing enroth behind a leopold-myers pairing would not go well
