  • Goalies in NHL

    Hi. I am from Spain so I couldn't name a single NHL player.
    I got the stuff to take a MVP series player from collections. I thought to take a goalie because they have the highest fantasy points average. I can choose between Hellebuy, who surprisingly is ranked low in fantasy rankings or Quick who is a 4.5 stars player, not 5 *
    I see that there are a lot of goalies between 20 and 30 FPs and that the rankings in a couple web pages I saw differ heavily.
    Then there is that unconfirmed special status for the goalies.
    Can someone give me some background about this position to understand what happens?

    Well the key to goalies is pick one that starts often and is on a strong defensive team. In hockey, the goalies do score a lot of fantasy points... even the backups. So its hard to tell from just an FP avg. Of the 2 you mentioned I'd take Quick. One tip is look at their stats to see how many games they have played. If it's not a lot of games , then you are probably looking at the backup goalie. :-)
