You play so many more games in North American hockey than you do in European hockey. The KHL season is 54 games, the SEL season is 55 games. There is a lot less recuperation time in NA hockey. Also the quicker pace of the game requires more explosive movements more often during the games in general.

Varlamov has been injury prone since he came to NA. His total amount of regular season games during his years over here are 33, 29, and 30 split between Hershey and DC. His injury issues didn't just crop up last year under Irbe.
