Ranking The Division: Goaltending Tandems

Although some might accuse me of homerism, its hard to argue with the stats.  Craig Anderson and Robin Lehner were 1-2 in save percentage for any goalie playing more than 4 games in the NHL last season, and both were in the top 20 league-wide among all goalies.  Anderson would have been a serious Vezina threat if he hadn’t been injured, and Lehner provides a backup where there is very little drop-off.  This could be the best tandem in the league now that Roberto Luongo and Cory Schneider have been broken up.

So there you have it, the way I see it in terms of the goaltending situation in the Senators’ division. This could very easily change once the season begins, but this order is how I would put them up against one another.
