Varlamov for a 1st and 2nd rounder
Among some other Avs' trades.. but this one really filled a hole in our lineup and Varly played some amazing hockey down the stretch. Obviously everyone wants to see some more consistency, but how often do you get a supremely talented goaltender with a nice playoff resume at the age of 22? Like Kari Lehtonen, Varly's skill should never be in question, only his durability. He played a full year last year and him along with Landeskog were the only reason the Avs were in the hunt post All-Star break.
The 1st rounder turned out to be Filip Forsberg, but no one saw him falling to 11, while one of the Caps biggest weaknesses last year were their goaltending issues. I like Holtby, but that is a very young and inexperienced team in net.
