2014 Outlook: During the offseason prior to 2013, the Lightning had their choice of a number different goaltenders via trade, and they elected to go with Lindback, the latest product of the Predators' goaltender development machine. Unfortunately, injuries and inconsistency plagued Lindback in the first three months of the season, and the Bolts made another goalie trade in April, securing Ben Bishop. Lindback's stats in his first season as the potential No. 1 in Tampa Bay were not very good -- a 2.90 goals-against average and .902 save percentage are off from what he did as Pekka Rinne's backup in Nashville. Given that reality -- and the presence of Bishop -- it's tough to think Lindback will be of much use beyond an occasional spot-start in fantasy.
2014 Outlook: In general, Neuvirth has been saying all the right things when it comes to the goaltending timeshare in Washington -- he's a supportive teammate to Braden Holtby, but he will continue to battle to be the No. 1. The unfortunate fact for Neuvirth is that he's significantly behind Holtby from a production standpoint, and that's led to the younger player getting the lion's share of starts in this split. Nevertheless, Neuvirth does possess the talent to make an impact on the nights that he does play, and the jury is still somewhat out on whether Holtby is indeed the franchise netminder for which the Caps have been searching for the past several seasons. Neuvirth has value as a rotational option in fantasy, and could have No. 2 upside should his starting percentage increase.
