Frederik Andersen (2.2)

Due to Khudobin’s excellent postseason, the decision for starter and backup was tough. In the end, I’m leaning more towards a 1A and 1B situation. Andersen gets the nod as his stats have been fairly consistent. He doesn’t necessarily steal games for the Maple Leafs nowadays, but he allows them the opportunity to win night in and night out. He gets a lot of flak playing in Toronto, due to the restlessness of the fan base, but I think their issues stem more from their defensive play in front of Andersen.

Anton Khudobin (1.3)

This guy’s so cool. I can say for certain that the Anaheim Ducks took him for granted. His ability to actually put the Stars on his back at certain points was made very apparent all throughout the playoffs. The reason why I have him as 1B is because of his lack of a track record. If he can maintain the level of play he showed during the playoffs, then this would be a different story. He has largely been considered a backup in his career though. Even so, his stats have been on par, or better than Andersen’s in the smaller sample size.
