Can only keep one, I asked last year and the consensus was Lehtonen and I agreed. While I believe Lehtonen is going to be better than both eventually, is Emery that much better in the short term that I should roll with him and try to get Lehtonen later?

Thanks for any comments.

The rest of my team is:

Joe Thornton
Anze Kopitar
Paul Stastny
Thomas Vanek
Justin Williams
Jay Bouwmeester
J.M. Liles
Moral victories are for losers.

Emery might be the safer bet of the three because of the team playing in front of him, but Atlanta is still missing 1 more defenseman according to TSN.

Divisional opponents has me giving the nod to Lehtonen.
I make 1 or 2 posts a week tops. Sometimes they're gold, sometimes they're crap, but the end weight is the same.

I'd probably go with Lehtonen.
In a 2005 study published by the journal Nature, researchers at Durham University in England concluded that, across a range of sports, we found that wearing red is consistently associated with a higher probability of winning. The researchers also suggested that red's effect may subconsciously intimidate opponents in athletic contests, especially when the athletes are equal in skill and strength.

I want to say Backstrom, because the kid can play, but he's only played one year.

Lehtonen is also 50/50. Great goalie, but he has been up and down.

At this point, I'd take Lehtonen if I had to choose.
