I don't remember Leclaire ever being fun to watch...

Varlamov is a great guy but very inconsistent. He's a great goalie to stop unbelievable shots, but not a very good consistent goaltender. He can stand on his head but aren't in the same company as guys like Lundqvist, Brodeur, Thomas, etc.

Holtby made miraculous saves this past season yet was consistent for the majority of the time. AND Holtby has a bigger upside.

Neuvirth is going to be a good goalie, maybe not Varlamov.
I wouldn't put any young goalie in the same company like the old guys Lundqvist, Brodeur, Thomas are in.
