accept thats not it at all. varly being more athletic doesnt mean he has more talent. it means that he is more athletic.
i can accept the premise that varly CAN use better technique, i dont accept that he WILL.
in short i dont buy that varly will end up the better goaltender. i think that is completely left in the balance.
