Who will be your starter?

Hello, I have a question. When Leighton will be back, who will be the starter on your team? It's a fantasy question, I know, lame, I'm sorry. I have both Bob and Leighton in my pool, picked Bob up, after Leighton got injured. But at least statwise Bob is playing very very well. Has he stolen the starter job?
Thanks in advanve

Complete guess but with Leighton coming back maybe with 50 games left I'd predict:

Bobrovsky - 30-35 games
Leighton - 15-20 games

Keep in mind that Lavy loves to ride the hot hand at all times though. If Bob keeps it up he could see 40, on the other hand, if Bob slows down and Leighton gets hot he could see 25.

Bob's worst save % for any single game in his last ten (9-0-1) is .914. And that was ten games ago. This is Bob's team.

complete Leighton fan here, but with that said.

I don't think Lavi believes in a fixed starter, he will play who ever is winning and gives the team the best chance to win

what happens when we have 3 healthy goalies is Anyones guess

I can actually see Lavi trying to carry all 3 goalies actually

I think we need at least 3 more threads on the front page, before we truly know the answer to this question.

We have no idea.

I don't want to burn Bob out with starts. Boucher needs to get some starts, soon.

The topic of Leighton, I believe he will be tested when he returns. If he turns into what he was prior to coming here last year, then I suspect he will be waived/etc. However, if he returns and plays good, he may stay. We could give Leighton starts and Bob starts.

But then another question comes, what about Bouch?

Bob has the highest save percentage of any goalie without a shutout. That means consistency.

He also, protects his 5 hole, doesn't cough up rebounds, handles the puck well. These are in fact skills Leighton has trouble with.
