Carey is as good as Varlamov this year as bad as he is, but Varlamov has a way better win% considering he is on the toppest team in the league. And Halak owns the ***** out of Varlamov, so you have no argument.

I'm also detecting anti Care Price bias here, since he's older by what, one year? Absolute Fail at suggesting Varlamov would ever be better than him. 1 year older but 100+ NHL games ahead. Utter. Fail.
Do you know anything about Varlamov? The guy has been on the radar ever since he was 18 and was brought up to the Lokomotiv big club for the playoffs (same year he also had a sensational WJC, posting a 1.5 GAA and 2 shutouts in 6 games). The very next year he put up really strong numbers in the regular season on Lokomotiv and then posted 5 shutouts in 16 playoff games with them. Hence his selection in the 1st round of 2006. If the Habs hadn't picked Price the year before, they almost certainly would have picked Varlamov in 2006 instead of Fischer.

To flat out refuse to acknowledge that Varlamov COULD be better than Price is being just as biased as you're accusing Natey of.
