Top Ten Keeper League Goalies To Rebuild With

Mar 3rd 2018, 1:39pm EST

By: Jimmer Lowe


Rebuilding in Fantasy Hockey can be a fickle thing. A long and arduous process that can become a lot less exciting when you aren\'t getting NHL Exec money to tank. In fact, you\'re probably paying league fees to the winner, that guy you hate, who offered you Phil Kessel for Ryan Nugent Hopkins years ago. Of course you declined. So now it\'s time to start fresh. There\'s always a crop of new and exciting forwards coming up in Fantasy Hockey. Some we know will hit the mark, and some that come out of nowhere but nothing is more hit or miss than Prospective goaltenders for your Fantasy Keeper team. Knowing that all leagues work a bit differently and that some leagues allow you to keep almost your whole team while some allow you to only keep 6 players, I\'ve comprised a list of 10 goaltenders your team should take a chance on if you\'re trying to stock up and now and be competitive in a couple of years. Some of these guys may take a while but all of them have the talent to be a starting goaltender in the NHL. Worst case you can flip one of them for a nice piece if they start getting you too many points. Here is the list of the top ten Fantasy Keeper League Goalies you want to own as a rebuilding team.

10. Anton Forsberg

Anton Forsberg may never be a stud but he can definitely provide value for a rebuilding team. Backup to the aging Corey Crawford on a team that appears to be trending downward doesn\'t sound like a great pickup, but this move has it\'s pros. First of all Corey Crawford is having a tougher time staying healthy as of late. He\'s 33 and with two years on his contract may become trade bait to a fringe team looking to bolster their goaltending in the coming year or two. Especially if the Hawks continue to slide. Anton Forsberg would be the best bet to slip into the starter role if Corey were to get traded next year and even though he may not put up phenomenal stats he\'s still solid, hitting his prime, and could provide another Fantasy Team value as a starter. He\'s not the guy you want to build your team around but if you\'re fine to stash a goalie that may not get a lot of points next year in hopes of getting even a small return, Anton is worth the chance.

9. Jake Oettinger
Jake Oettinger is a prime prospect hoping to avoid the Jack Campbell career path. He\'s only nineteen and there is no way he\'s going to get you points for a couple of years but hey if you\'re tanking why not go for those tasty doughnuts if your league allows it? He\'s already a big kid at 6\'4 212 pounds and has had a solid year with Boston University. (He\'s been excellent in his first two playoff games as well) A concern was his World Junior play and his lack of ability to stand out, but I\'m willing to look past 3 games to grasp the bigger picture. He needs some grooming and he\'ll need some time but is it completely farfetch\'d to imagine him at least splitting times in the Stars net in 3 years time? Not for a second.

8. Ilya Samsonov
If this ranking were built on talent alone, Ilya would be much higher up this list, but his circumstances are less than ideal with Braden Holtby keeping a firm hold on the Capitals net. He has been exceptional as a 21 year old in the KHL for Metallurg Magnitogorsk (Sounds like a great X-Men Character) posting really good numbers, and has even cracked Craig Button\'s list of Top 50 NHL Drafted Prospects, landing at number 19. With Holtby signed for 2 more years and still being only 28 years of age it\'s tough to imagine a position in which Samsonov makes an impact in the next couple of years. That being said he is prime trade bait and may force his way into stealing starts if this production keeps up. He\'s that good. He might be a guy to keep an eye on for a year or two before picking him up but if you\'re not trying to win at the moment and he becomes NHL available he should be locked into your roster. How many people wish they picked up Vasilevskiy 2 years ago?

7. Laurent Brossoit
Edmonton is a mess. Flat out a mess. Cam Talbot has done nothing to solidify himself as a starter this year after a very good campaign in 2016-17, and the team is definitely going to be going through some changes. It might not be a bad idea to gamble on Laurent\'s playing time soaring as one of those changes. Laurent looked very comfortable in 8 starts last year for the Oilers and although his numbers have dipped this year who the hell\'s hasn\'t for the Oilers. If the Oil are able to figure things out in the next year or two, and Talbot finds his way out of Edmonton at the end of next year, the 24 year old may be in prime position to step into the starting role for a team with Connor McDavid on it. Surely that\'s going to be good for some wins?

6. Eric Comrie
Eric Comrie is good. And he is getting better. Quickly. He has shown very solid growth this year and is only 22 years of age. The problem with Eric might be that Connor Hellebuyck got a two year head start on the opportunity to start on one of the best teams in the NHL. Also, remember how the Jets signed Steve Mason to a 2 year deal worth THE MOST MONEY EVER?? Yeah, that pretty much seals the deal on Eric getting a fair chance to play until 2020 but when he does he may challenge Connor for starts. The Jets are going to be patient with this technically sound goaltender but their patience should pay off. And yours could too if you\'re willing to tank and watch a couple of Manitoba Moose games along the way. Personally that\'s my dream date night! Worst case? He gets traded in a couple of years and has a chance to start for another team. The Jets had him in mind as their number 1 of the future. It\'s up to him to earn it.

5. Thatcher Demko
Thatcher Demko is coming. And it may be sooner than you think. This goalie has the size and speed to be a franchise guy and with the Canucks, who are in the process of somewhat of a rebuild kind of. There\'s a lot to love about the 22 year old tall drink of water. He\'s athletic but technically proficient. He\'s reading the pro game better and better. And he\'s being groomed to be THE guy in a hockey market starving for a competitive team again. The Canucks have loaded up with some pretty solid youngsters so if you\'re willing to sit through a year or two of a Canucks team finding their way, Thatcher may reward your fantasy team with top 5 numbers for many years to come. Plus his name is Thatcher. Jealous.

4. Malcolm Subban
Finally Malcolm got a chance to prove himself in the NHL this year in the revolving door of Vegas Goalies with health issues. And you know what? He didn\'t dissapoint. His numbers won\'t jump off the charts at you but he did a very solid job of not losing games while him and Legace kept the team afloat until Fleury returned. It\'s weird to think of, but he\'s still only 24, an age where most goalies start their career. He is firmly locked into the Golden Knights team as a backup goalie to a player, who although is adored by all, is incredibly injury prone. It wouldn\'t be surprising to see the Golden Knights make a commitment to him and see him start at least 40 games in the next year or two for one reason or another. There\'s also the chance that Fleury does not return and if he doesn\'t Subban\'s Fantasy stats will skyrocket. He might be a guy that gets too good before your team does, in which case trade him for prospects or picks and wait on someone else on this list. Either way, he should be able to be drafted late entering next season.

3. Ilya Sorokin
Finally! Another Ilya on the list. If only there was another Thatcher... Ilya Sorokin has a prime chance to be an NHL starter soon. One that will grow into a very good starter on a team with a ton of question marks. The Islanders prospect has been very successful in Russia and he has all the talent in the world. He\'s still a year or two away from being an impact player in the NHL but he is trending upwards and even has a Gold Medal for everyone\'s favorite vacation spot, Olympic Athletes From Russia. His stats have been off the charts and trust me, the Islanders are salivating at the idea of that translating to the NHL game. His 1.59 GAA is filthy and as crazy as this sounds, Ilya Sorokin may very well be the reason why John Tavares re-signs. Get him while you can.

2. Juuse Saros
Juuse Saros is just 22 years old. Juuse Saros is already in the NHL as a backup Goaltender to a serious Cup Contender. Juuse Saros is the future of the Predators. Saros is being groomed by fellow Finn Pekka Rinne and is poised to take over the starting role at the start of the 2019-2020 season for a team loaded with defensive depth and talent. He is already playing a third of the games in Nashville and is one Rinne injury away from being a top twenty point getter in a Fantasy Hockey points only league. With Pekka under contract for one more year and Juuse already playing at a more than acceptable rate, he is locked in as the goalie of the future. He will deliver you points next year, but not too much, and is a perfect match for a team trying a quick rebuild. Juuse has been brought through the system with mindboggling grace and is the ultimate case of being set up for success. I want this guy on my team for years to come. Draft him next year and hold on to him for dear life. You won\'t regret it.

1. Carter Hart
You know who Carter Hart is. You know he was Team Canada\'s starter for the World Juniors this year. You know that his stats for the Everett Silvertips are biblical. And you also know that he\'s been drafted by the Flyers which is a terrifying thought. Should you run away at the thought of a Fantasy Goalie donning the Orange and Black and sometimes a weird Silver/Grey tint? Absolutely not. Carter Hart is the real deal. He\'s the next Carey Price. He is that good. Carter Hart will finish out the year in the WHL, where he\'ll continue to break records and earn all the accolades of a generational goaltender before heading to Pro hockey next year. The Flyers are going to try to be patient with him but oh boy, is it going to be hard, especially in a city that craves a goaltender more than a lonely man craves a tinder match. The Flyers Brass will keep Carter Hart in the AHL for the entirety of next year. They\'ll do the cliched interviews about how they want to be patient, about how they want him to be ready, but Carter Hart is going to outplay their patience. He\'s going to seize the starting job and honestly, the Flyers can\'t wait to not stop him. He will be the team\'s starting goalie by 2020 and with his can\'t miss pedigree is a must draft in this offseason for a rebuilding team. If you are willing to stash him on your team knowing that he won\'t do a damn thing next year, than you stash him on your team and laugh in the face of your fantasy opponents while he posts top three goaltending points for the next decade. He\'s worth building a team around. And those don\'t happen every day for a fantasy hockey goaltender.

Happy Monday y'all! Jaro Halak has started two straight for the Bs but he hasn't looked great. While Tuukka RaskThas not given them a great shot to win when he starts, like I said a couple of weeks ago, Rask always starts the season slow so keep chipping away at owners in your leagues that are looking to get rid of him.

How are Western Conference Goalies Faring?
An Early Look at Goalie Performances in the West By Kevin Wickersham We\'re a little over a month into the campaign so let\'s take a look at how the West\'s goalies have performed thus far.

NHL Start of the Season Notes
By Jake Schenkman Just a few thoughts of mine on some goalies this season: I like what Carolina has done as a team the past year but I don't understand the logic in going back to the combo of Ward/Lack this year after what they saw last year. I get bringing Lack back for this year but with Ward becoming a UFA after last year, and seeing where he's been the past few years, how do you sign him at $3.

Top Keeper Picks
By Brian Lemenager (@WeakGloveSide) With the season winding down, I thought it'd be appropriate to provide some guidance for keeper leagues on who I think the top goalies are going into next season. I've broken them out into a few categories.

Undercover Good Matchups & Games This Week
By Brian Lemenager (@WeakGloveSide) Last week, I gave you a group of teams that may look like good matchups for your goalie, but when looking at their shot and chance generation, they may be fairly risky. This week, the plan was to provide a group of teams that, based on their record, are thought of as good teams but present an opportunity for a quality start.

Undercover Teams to Avoid
By Brian Lemenager (@WeakGloveSide) Teams to Avoid The playoffs are here for standard 12 man Yahoo! Leagues, so matchups matter now more than ever. I tweet out what matchups I like daily from @WeakGloveSide, and if you follow you probably notice the trends of teams I like to start against and ones I avoid.

Since The Trade Deadline . . .
By Brian Lemenager (@WeakGloveSide) The trade Deadline is one of the biggest days in the NHL as it gives teams one last opportunity to bolster their rosters for a playoff push. While this year's deadline was a bit quieter than past years, a number of teams made significant additions to their team that should impact how you view them when choosing matchups for goalies.

Surging Into the Playoffs
By Brian Lemenager Playoffs are only two weeks away for standard Yahoo leagues and getting hot at the right time is just as important in fantasy as it is in the NHL. So for those looking to make a push for that playoff spot I\'ve organized the top goalies by Yahoo season long ranking and provided their stats over the month of February to give you an idea of who to utilize for your late season push.

Goals Saved Above Average
By Brian Lemenager (@WeakGloveSide) A few weeks ago I wrote an article about Quality Starts by goalies and argued that some goalies may just be suffering from bad teams in front of them. After looking at home and away save percentages last week I wanted to return to that idea and present a different statistic that measured the topic in a similar manner.

Home vs Away
By Brian Lemenager (@WeakGloveSide) In sports, the common thought is teams perform better when playing in their own stadium. Whether it's due to familiarity, the fan support or the comfort of a certain routine I think most can agree it generally holds true.

The Correlation Between PDO and Possession Metrics
By Teri Chazau (@terichazau) With the advanced stats community continuing to grow and gain influence, it is important now more than ever to understand how these statistics play off of each other. Even when stats seem to stack in a certain team's favor, you have to understand how in practice things might not play out as such.
Feb 10th 2016, 11:41pm EST
Quality Starts
By Brian Lemenager (@WeakGloveSide) Last week, I tweeted what I thought was an interesting stat from @WeakGloveSide about the Devils and Cory Schneider. Up to the All Star Break, when Schneider was starting and the Devils scored more than one goal they were 22-1-3.

Why Jon Quick is the Best Goalie in Keeper Leagues
By Teri Chazau (@terichazau) Since the NHL began tracking advanced stats, the Los Angeles Kings have put on a clinic in dominating the charts. Three of the past four seasons, including the current one, the Kings have ranked first in the league in possession numbers.

Goalie Starts for the Rest of the Season
By Brian Lemenager (@WeakGloveSide) The All-Star game limited the games on the NHL slate this week but I wanted to provide a simple breakdown of the remainder of the season. This article will be more useful for those in points only leagues where number of starts matter more, but it also could be valuable to those looking to make some moves before the deadline in their respective league.
Feb 1st 2016, 9:38am EST
Team Offense Rankings
By Teri Chazau (@terichazau) To supplement last week's team defense article, this week we will look at what teams sport the most dangerous offenses in the league from a daily fantasy standpoint by looking at how many shots they take for each goal they score. The teams at the top should be avoided in matchups as they leave goaltenders little opportunity to compensate for the points lost for goals against.
Jan 28th 2016, 12:02pm EST
Goalie Save % By Shot Danger
By Brian Lemenager (@WeakGloveSide) Last week, @terichazau introduced the idea that when looking at the ratio of shots against per goals against, we can determine the quality of shots a team surrenders. The higher average number of shots to goals, the lower quality of chances.
Jan 25th 2016, 12:56am EST
Team Defense Rankings
By Teri Chazau (@terichazau) It seems like every week I find a way to mention how team defense is just as if not more important than goalies themselves when picking netminders for both daily and season long fantasy play. This week, I will rank each team based on a simplification of their team defense.
Jan 21st 2016, 12:11am EST
Second Half Projections
By Teri Chazau (@Terichazau) When it comes to a goalie in fantasy hockey, the team around him often can be more important than the goaltender himself. In this article, I'm going to look at teams whose goaltenders could benefit from improved play in the second half of the season, as well as those you should expect to regress.

Capitalizing on Rink Stat Biases
By Teri Chazau (@terichazau) In any kind of fantasy matchup, the difference between a win and a loss can come down to a single shot or a single block. With such a small margin for error, it is critical that you take advantage of all the information available to you on any given night.
Jan 7th 2016, 1:09am EST
Advanced Stats NHL Context
By Brian Lemenager (@WeakGloveSide) Given @terichazau recent introduction of some advanced statistics used to evaluate both individual players and teams, I figured it best to give some context to those statistics. I'll start with PDO.

Advanced Statistics 200
By Teri Chazau (@terichazau) After covering the basics of possession numbers in last week's article, it's time to delve deeper into the world of advanced statistics. Too often I see supposed authorities of sports writing stipulating about the implications of certain stats only to recognize that they really don't know what they're talking about.
Dec 30th 2015, 11:01pm EST
Advanced Statistics 101
By Teri Chazau (@terichazau) With advanced statistics continuing to grow in popularity, they have managed to creep onto the fantasy scene as well. Consequently, I wanted to educate our audience with a little introduction to advanced statistics, also known as possession statistics, so that you may apply them when considering players of any position for your roster.
Dec 24th 2015, 11:12am EST
Hot or Not
By Brian Lemenager (@WeakGloveSide) This week I look at how goalies have been playing the past month. We\'re moving into the heart of the NHL season and teams should be settling in to who they are and forming their identity.
Dec 21st 2015, 11:27am EST
Why The Butterfly Is So Effective
By Teri Chazau (@terichazau) It seems crazy to think that mere decades ago the butterfly was not a technique. It took a series of events, beginning with the introduction of the goalie mask and culminating in the likes of Vladislav Tretiak and Patrick Roy, to cement the butterfly as a legitimate style of goaltending.
Dec 17th 2015, 9:14am EST
Best Teams for Goalie Starts
By Brian Lemenager (@WeakGloveSide) Drafting the best players is important in every fantasy league. However, exploiting matchups allows owners to squeeze the best out of their rosters and maximize success over the course of the season.
Dec 14th 2015, 9:01am EST
In Search Of More Goals
By Teri Chazau (@terichazau) It's obvious at this point how the NHL views its profits more goals = more fans = more money. Changes dating back to the 2004-05 lockout have largely entailed an eye for more scoring.
Dec 10th 2015, 9:23am EST
3 Stars of the Week & Looking Ahead
By Brian Lemenager (@WeakGloveSide) 3: Garret Sparks & his pads Sparks posted a shutout in his first career NHL start and did so in style rocking some of the best pads I've seen to date. He stumbled in his second start against Winnipeg surrendering 6 goals but he was able to rebound against the Blues, stopping 27 of 28 shots and winning his second game in three starts.

Hidden Gems in Net for Season Long Fantasy
By Teri Chazau (@terichazau) #1 Michael Neuvirth (PHI) five wins, . 939 save %, 3 shutouts The Flyers have been a slow starting team in recent years but always seem to turn on the jets as the season wears on, soyou can expect some offensive support to Neuvirth's stellar numbers thus far.

Monday Night Review
By Jake Schenkman So Fleury becomes the third youngest goalie to get to 300 wins. I can't see I saw that coming but good for him as this is a big accomplishment and he's having a fantastic year.

Throwback Thursday
We start off with the Varlamov and the Avs beating Lundqvist and the Rangers. I am kind of surprised with this as I thought the Rangers were turning it around and Lundqvist had his A game going but Varlamov was great in this one and pretty much stole the two points for the Avs.

Berra, Bobrovsky, and Braden
by Justin Goldman It has been a really fun start to the season when it comes to scouting backups and prospects. With 49 goalies appearing in games so far (you could say that's 19 backups), minutes have been really spread out in Week 1.
