So it's the 3rd year in this keeper league I'm in and I landed 1st overall pick this year. I think I'm pretty set on choosing a goalie, since I need an upgrade, but I'm not sure who to pick. I suppose if someone sees something in the skater position that they think I shouldn't pass up let me know.

My Keepers right now

F - Thornton, Datsyuk, B. Ryan, Voracek, Boyes
D - Carlson, Campbell
G - Lehtonen

We can only keep 1 goalie each year, and I think Goalie is my biggest need as it stands right now. Here is who I have to pick from:

Vokoun, Hiller, Halak, Backstrom, Varlamov, Reimer, S. Mason, Rask, Schneider, Pavelec

There are more but those I think are probably the best available.
For skaters there isn't too much, at least I can't see taking anyone of these guys over a goalie.

Visnovsky, Ehrhoff, Eriksson, Brown, Hornqvist, Krejci, P. Bergeron, J. Neal, Stafford, Bourque, Kaberle, Moulson, Hornton

So the draft's today, and I'm leaning towards Halak. Any other opinions?

Hiller or Halak are the best options... I prefer Hiller over Halak though.

Any chance you can trade that 1st round pick for a goalie? Trade your 1st and Lehtonen to a team that needs offense help? Are rookies like RNH, Schenn, Landeskog available for draft?

I prefer Hiller slightly over Halak but you should definitely take one of those 2.

I'd lean the other way and go with Vokoun. He'll kick some ass with Washington this year and you can draft a new goalie next year since teams are only allowed to keep 1. The available list of goalies will be just as rich next season.

Yeah all the new rookies will be available, don't think I'll be able to work a trade though.

oh man you know i would go with Halak, I think he finds his grove with the young St louis team and I am concerned about Hiller's Vertigo issues....that may sideline him again this season...

Hiller or Halak is who I would go with. Hiller if I had the choice.

Hiller for me, but you can't go wrong with Halak either....
